Thoughts You Have At A Detroit Tigers Game

From opening day through the end of Fall, Detroit Fans are hyped up for The Tigers. Fans of the Motor City are unlike any other and take tremendous pride in their team, win or lose. Here are some typical thoughts that run through a Detroiter's mind at a Tigers game.

1. Wow, I look good in Navy and Orange, said no one ever.

2. Ugh, parking and traffic is a mess.

3. I miss the eat'em-up Tigers Guy.

4. Am I too old to ride the Comerica Carousel?

5. What about the Fly Ball Ferris Wheel? No, never too old.

6. I cannot resist the smell of Ballpark Franks.

7. It's how much for a beer?!?! You're kidding me. Actually all this food is overpriced.

8. Whatever. I need this pizza, those nachos and chili cheese fries. Just ring it up.

9. At least I can see the whole field from these nosebleeds. The important thing is that I'm in and cheering on my boys.

10. Who really is "My Tiger?"

11. I have to pee, but is this line worth it?

12. Kiss Cam! Pick me, pick me!

20. Do I really need this Miguel Cabrera bobble head? Yes, the answer is yes.

21. Gosh, I love Miggy.

22. I can't believe Verlander has Kate Upton.

23. Okay, it's summer. I should be able to wear this Tigers tank top without freezing.

24. Of course there's a rain delay.

25. Do I stay and wait it out? Of course!

26. I wonder if they'll have fireworks tonight.

27. I'll know I've made it when I'm part of the exclusive "Tiger Club."

28. I see my neighbor. Should I hide? She never shuts up.

29. This guy in front of me is blocking my view.

30. How do you even say Yoenis Céspedes?

31. I miss Leyland.

32. Brad Ausmus is doing pretty good, though.

33. Plus, he's pretty good looking.

34. I always forget how long baseball games are.

35. I hope someone wrote me a message on the scoreboard.

36. Aw, yet another girl gets proposed to or asked to prom here.

37. I love when they light up "Tigers" with tiger print.

38. Where did the Pepsi Porch go?

39. Oh well, this New Amsterdam Bar is amazing.


41. I want to measure my pitching speed in the batting cages.

42. Did that little kid just throw faster than me?

43. I love Detroit.

44. I love the Tigers.

45. I'm definitely coming back on my next day off.

Enjoy your next game at Comerica Park, and remember, win or lose, it's still a great day to be a Detroit Tigers fan!

In loving memory of Daniel Herman and the game we never got to attend.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
