First some mood music. This song by the Harry Simeone “Songsters” open the Chicago Cubs radio broadcasts I heard as a kid on WGN with Vince Lloyd and Lou Boudreau. The song also opened for the Dodgers radio broadcasts and it does mention Kalamazoo. The weather was perfect for the Tigers opener Thurs. afternoon…sunshine and mid 50s (light jacket and the baseball cap)…maybe a little sunscreen for the fair-skinned. Tigers win in the bottom of the 9th! Great game! Tigers are going places this year! The Whitecaps started tonight in Dayton, was a cool and pleasant evening with mostly clear skies. The Whitecaps open at home next Monday. The weather looks breezy and cool Monday with temperatures in the mid 40′s. Matt is trading me Saturday for Monday, so I’ll have Monday evening off and I’ll have to think about heading to 5th/3rd Park. Here’s the Whitecaps schedule and the Tigers schedule. Congratulations to Ferris St. for an AWESOME win over Union. They are in the finals! I remember my senior year of college traveling to Boston for the NCAA Hockey Finals. Wisconsin beat Denver 4-2 at the Boston Gardens.
