What looks like a woman sweeping strands of grass off of the ole' man's shoes is actually a woman sweeping strands of grass off of the ole' man's shoes. However, it also serves as a metaphor for Detroit sports. Tonight, for the second time this week, Detroit has swept the sports nation with wins coming from the Pistons, Red Wings, and Tigers. 2 of the wins were sweeps within the sweep (Tigers sweeping Yankees and Red Wings sweeping Avs). I tell you what, with all these sweeps from Detroit- the city is going to start looking like Mr. Clean's living room.
Lastly, the Detroit Tigers swept the Yankees at Yankee Stadium for the first time since the 3/5 compromise was still in effect. This is the last time that the Tigers will ever play at the historic Yankee Stadium and I couldn't be happier about us kicking their hall of fame statues and stealing their rosin bags before we left. The Tigers improved to 14-15, one game under .500 after starting the season 0-7 and 2-9. They go into Minnesota tomorrow night for a weekend series. Hopefully, they can continue to win ball games.
