Has the Dynamic Changed After One Game?

by Stephen Jones

The Giants and the Tigers . . .

To the critics the Tigers are showing rust
and now after just one game are showing bust.

Rust-or-bust?  Rust got a team to a World Series?
No, it arrived by smart play, heart and chemistry.

I’m not jumping on a West Coast bandwagon
just yet.  The Panda stung Detroit – Kaboom!

But one game doesn’t make a legacy.
Much less a “given” – World Series history.

    For James, and all the Detroit faithful:

    They’re trying but scoring a blank
    From the high in New York they just sank
    Though they’re down 0 to 3,
    ‘No-Mo-town’ cannot be
    The Tigers have more in the tank.

    That’s weird, I posted the previous comment Sunday the 28th at 7:18 PM, not the date and time showing.

    Thanks, Hil. Yeah, there’s some weirdness going on with the time. Our blog has become unfixed in time, like Billy Pilgrim.
