Once a long, long time ago, I was a devoted Detroit Tigers fan.
I adored guys like Al Kaline and Mickey Lolich; cheered when the Tigers won the Worlds Series in 1968 (yes I am that old) and in 1984; I loved to watch games at grand old Tigers Stadium.
However, years of living in Toronto caused me to lose touch with my beloved Tigers, and slowly but surely I began to root for the Toronto Blue Jays, a process helped along by the great Toronto teams of the early 1990s.
And yes, I must admit it was hard to root for a Detroit team that had become absolutely horrendous by the mid-90s.
But now suddenly the Tigers are the hottest team in baseball. They are currently on an eight game winning streak, and boast the best record in the Major Leagues.
So now I face a dilemma: Should I stick with the Jays or go back to my original love – the Tigers.
Maybe I should ask Dr. Phil
