If the Tigers are gonna get hot, they gotta do it in the cold

Oct 27, 2012, 10:39 AM EDT

The forecast for Game 3 is on the chilly side:



I am pretty bummed that the ebola virus or whatever it is I have caused me to cut my World Series trip short, but I’m pretty sure I’d die at this game.

    Calcaterra- Day to day, flue like symptoms.
    (There were rumors lurking about of you going all ‘rock n’ roll’ on us. Unconscious in a San Fran hotel room with prescription drugs and booze littered about the place)

    So you sent DJ to Detroit, but made him dress like you again?

      No, Matthew = Craig, remember?

    Adv. G-Men…. fairly typical June day by the bay.

    • historiophiliac - Oct 27, 2012 at 11:13 AM

      Yes, this kind of weather never occurs in Detroit…

    Its soooooo cold in the D! These San Francisco Fairies aren’t gonna make it out of here alive. Lets go Tigs!

      The Giants are used to playing in cool weather. SF in the summer is downright chilly. As Mark Twain is often alleged to have said, “The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco.”

      By the way, in case you haven’t noticed, the San Francisco “Fairies” have been sprinkling whoopass dust on your “Tigs” lately. Just thought you might like to know.

        Twain never said that.

        It probably stems from a joke Twain borrowed about summer in Paris, and the first time it was used in the modern phrasing you use referred to Duluth, MN. And I can assure you, summer in Duluth is colder and more variable than summer in SF.

        I got it, I got it. That’s why I said “alleged”, but thanks for clearing it up, anyway.

      I’m a die-hard, lifelong Tigers fan and you are an embarrassment to Tigers fans everywhere.
      Keep your filthy bigotry to yourself, or at least don’t pollute a sports website with it.
      Shame on you.

      • dtownbeatdown - Oct 27, 2012 at 6:02 PM

        Hey normcash don’t get so butt hurt about a little name calling. It’s sports, and we are men. Go drink a beer and chill out.

  5. deeznutz3d - Oct 27, 2012 at 12:20 PM

    Its all good, Leyland brought out the Wd-40 to work out the rust on the team. Get ready for a D Town Beat Down.

    Oh and if you think San Fran gets cold, You’re a pussy.

    • cur68 - Oct 27, 2012 at 12:37 PM

      “You’re a pussy”

      So sailcat’s tough, productive, and can take a pounding? Hmmmm. You then must be balls: delicate, shrivel in the cold, and easily hurt.

      • deeznutz3d - Oct 27, 2012 at 12:49 PM

        awwww man you really got me there………. you come up with that all by yourself?

      • cur68 - Oct 27, 2012 at 12:50 PM

        Had some help from Betty White.

      • historiophiliac - Oct 27, 2012 at 12:59 PM

        I never have understood why men like to insult each other by calling one another something they love dearly.

        It appears it will not be possible to have any posts this Series free from homophobic and sexist comments. Damn, this one was about the weather…the WEATHER.

      • cur68 - Oct 27, 2012 at 2:19 PM

        …and the weather in Detroit BLOWS…heh, heh, heh…

      • indaburg - Oct 27, 2012 at 3:09 PM

        ‘philiac, I never understood that either. An organ that can deliver an object the size of a watermelon is hardly weak. However, based on his handle, deeznuts, it doesn’t sound like pussy is something he loves at all. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

    • dtownbeatdown - Oct 27, 2012 at 1:53 PM

      It does not get 40 degrees in San Fran on a daily basis, and you are on our turf now, hopefully the giants make it out alive. It is the D after all, and yes men calling each other names about sports is completely nessessary you pussies.

    Send Matt Moore like you did for the All Star game and he can write hourly essays on Detroit’s inner beauty.

    Reblogged this on Bhekumuzi Mguni.

    what makes you think deeznutz is into woman at all? his preference is right there in his name. go giants!

    • dtownbeatdown - Oct 27, 2012 at 4:41 PM

      You have sac in your name… Sooooo what are you trying to say? Did you drive over from Oakland like the rest of you san fran fairy bandwagon fans.

  9. nomorsacbball - Oct 27, 2012 at 11:12 PM

    good one douchetownbeatdown. what’s really funny is you’re name is exactly what happened in game 1. you pussies got beat down. Go Giants!

    • SOBEIT - Oct 28, 2012 at 1:01 PM
