Q: Itâ€™s been forever since youâ€™ve blogged about the Detroit Tigers. Are you still a fan even after their disappointing World Series loss last October? A: Of course! I still follow the Tigers and will always be a fan.
Q: Then how come you havenâ€™t blogged about them recently.
A: I only have so much time to blog and just havenâ€™t had much time to write about them yet.
Q: So whatâ€™s your opinion of this yearâ€™s team?

A: Count on it.
Q: Youâ€™ve never given us an update about Marathon Girlâ€™s injury. Is she still running The Dam Marathon?
A: That has nothing to do with the Tigers. And, yes, I do have an update on her injury but canâ€™t write about it quite yet. Look for an update early next week.
