Opening Day rocks!
While many Detroit sports fans are still reeling from Michigan State being bounced out of the Final 4 Saturday night in Indy, others have moved on to the next big event – Friday’s Detroit Tigers home opener at Comerica Park.
Whether or not fans flocking downtown care that the Tigers are playing the Cleveland Indians or that it’s been more than a quarter-century since the boys of summer won the World Series pennant really doesn’t matter much: It’s Opening Day and that means a whole lot of fun for thousands of party people -- and sports fans, too.
To get into game-day shape, Metromix caught up with some of the Motor City’s finest rockers and rollers to hear their favorite Tigers stories and memories, hopes for the 2010 season, and more. Ready? Let's hear that Tigers roar?!? Rarr. Play ball! —Brett Callwood, Special to Metromix
