I was relieved that the Tigers cleaned up their act and tie the series with St. Louis with a 3-1 victory last night. The Tigers looked a lot better than their game Saturday. Still, they had plenty of chances to blow the second game wide open and were unable to capitalize on the. Iâ€™m hoping the Tigers can put their act together a little better and take two out of three in St. Louis. (Iâ€™d rather them finish the series in Detroit and win it in front of the hometown fans.)
It appears Iâ€™m not the only person getting old.
One of my favorite snack foods is Doritos. Marathon Girl, who does an excellent job of keeping my snack cupboard well-stocked, is always buying me new flavors of Doritos when they come out. So, when I noticed there was some Fiery Habanero Doritos in the cupboard a few weeks ago, I couldnâ€™t wait to try them. I love hot and spicy things. Unfortunately Fiery Habanero proved to be a bit too much for me. It was hard to eat more than a handful without drinking copious amounts of water or feeling a tinge of heartburn.
Ten to 15 years ago, I donâ€™t think I would have had a problem eating a whole bag of those spicy chips. Today my body rebels against the anything past medium on the hot and spicy scale â€“ just a further reminder that no matter how good of shape I try to keep my body in, thereâ€™s some parts of getting older that I canâ€™t keep stop.
Fortunately, the good people at the Frito Lay also came out with Blazinâ€™ Buffalo & Ranch Doritos. These have a nice bite to them but nothing guys in their early 30s like me canâ€™t handle. Theyâ€™re quickly becoming one of my favorite chips.
