Tigers turn Detroit from sad to glad with easy win

I went to two bars the past two nights to gauge the mood of Tiger fans during this tense ALCS against the Boston Red Sox.

On Wednesday night I went to the Old Shillelagh in Greektown for the first time in months to see if they would let me in with my back pack. They did. And Tuesday night I slid into Cheli’s Chilli Bar near the stadium where they always let me in.

On Wednesday people celebrated and danced and listened to loud music. One young man’s face was painted in orange and blue as he screamed the night away underneath an orange Mohawk wig. These people were happy because the offense finally exploded during a 7-3 Tigers victory.

The night before at Cheli’s I stood next to a young woman who actually cried when the Tigers lost 1-0 in Game 3. When I saw her break down I wished that Tiger players could see it. They would see how passionate the fans are even outside the stadium. This woman was so angry that she went into a five minute tirade blasting the Tigers for not caring.

She loved this team and believes the Tigers are the best team in baseball.

A night late the man wearing the blue and orange face paint said the same thing. But he was happy and truly believed the Tigers are World Series bound. It is fun to sit on the perimeter as an observer and witness the emotions of sports fans. That is why I like to have fun with my job but I take it seriously.

That’s because I know you love to have fun as sports fans but you take your passion seriously.

I witnessed the tale of two sports bars and emotions. Now I wonder what it will be like tonight and this weekend.
