Today the Boys of Summer and the Boys of Fall both Play Ball!  The Tigers go against the Texas Rangers this afternoon at 4:19pm on TBS, trying to tie the series at one game a piece.  And tonight at Ford Field, the 4-0 Lions play the Bears of Chicago on ABC’s Monday Night Football — the first time the Lions have been featured on the nationally televised sports spotlight in TEN YEARS!  The last time, the Lion’s were playing at the Silverdome! This town is jumpin’… almost as high as the Lions’ great receiver Calvin Johnson (#81)!

Meanwhile pictures are up at of last Saturday’s Salvation Army’s Celebrity softball game to raise awareness of next February’s 25th Anniversary Bed and Bread Club Radiothon.  I managed and pitched for the “Red Team” and in a “close” game, we edged out Mark Ridley’s “Blue Team” 20 to 11.  That reminds me, John Hefron will be appearing this Thursday the 13th thru Saturday the 15th at The Comedy Castle.  Call 248-542-9900 or go to for tickets and showtimes!  

And don’t forget to check out today’s stories including Paul McCartney’s wedding and some other good stuff up right now at — plus our latest Podcast!

Have a great day! And Go Tigers and Go Lions!
