A GAL IN KALAMAZOO.

HAPPY B-DAY TO BILL LAIMBEER.

May 19, 2014

HAPPY B-DAY TO BILL LAIMBEER.

A very happy birthday to one of our favorite Detroit Bad Boys, Bill Laimbeer!

 

"It's not tough at all as long as the fans are yelling, screaming and hollering."

 

During an era that defined basketball, Bill and the Pistons were the only team to have a winning record in the playoffs against the likes of Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, and Michael Jordan.

MARK "THE BIRD" FIDRYCH.

May 15, 2014

MARK "THE BIRD" FIDRYCH.

Today in 1976, Mark "The Bird" Fidrych pitched a complete game in his first Major League start. He allowed only 2 hits against the Indians as the Tigers cruised past in a 2-1 victory. That summer, The Bird became a national celebrity when his antics were televised on ABC in a win against the Yankees. Talking to the ball, strutting around on the mound, and rejecting balls that had "hits in them" won fans over all across the country.

 

Bird Watchers would fill Tiger Stadium to cheer, chant, and stomp their feet - "We want The Bird! We want The Bird!". He'd come back out of the clubhouse, like a rock star returning to the stage for an encore, waving at fans as they lost their mind. Summer of '76, man.

 

We're celebrating with this vintage reproduction, originally distributed by local press in Michigan as an iron-on. Available for a limited time.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO BOB.

May 6, 2014

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO BOB.

I guess I lost my way

There were so many roads

I was living to run and running to live

Never worried about paying or even much much I owed

 

-Bob Seger, Against The Wind, 1980

 

Michigan living legend Bob Seger was born today in 1945 in Dearborn, Michigan. Happy Birthday, Bob!

 

Love,
