but which would you rather happen,the lions to make the playoffs or the Tigers to win the world series? Personally, I would take the Lions in the playoffs. Living so far away from Detroit I never realized just how much more the Lions mean to most fans. The Tigers are absolutely rippin it up, and Verlander is having one of the best seasons of ALL TIME and nearly all of the talk is of the Lions. How much more do the Lions mean to you though? Would you rather have baseball's ultimate prize of the first Lion's plaoff berth in 12 years??
