Do any of you remember the movie Saturday the 14th?Â The 1981 film starring Richard Benjamin is:
Primarily a spoof of the Friday the 13th series, but also takes shots at several other horror films. After his family moves to a new house, a young boy discovers a mysterious book describing the curse hanging over the date of Saturday the 14th.
It’s a hoot for the 13-year-old set but otherwise a forgettable experience. Much like tonight’s Tigers game.Yes, I was fuming at Sean Casey‘s excuse-me swinglet on J.J. Putz‘s first pitch in the eighth.But it was the Tigers’ lack of timely hitting throughout the game â€” guys, that was Miguel Batista out there â€” that really ticked me off. In that regard, it was too much like Thursday’s 3-2 loss.Three things that stood out for me:
- Kenny Rogers was due for a dud.
- Magglio Ordonez suddenly looks lost at the plate. He’s 1 for 11 in the series.
- Chad Durbin was excellent coming in to relieve Rogers.
Now we have to hope for Jeff Weaver to pitch like Jeff Weaver for the Tigers to salvage a split.Oh, and Justin Verlander needs to do his thing too.I think he shall.
