About those Tigers. A stellar performance all around. And man, they were really feeling it when Phil Coke got Jayson Nix to pop up for the last out. Prince Fielder started calling off his teammates like a rhythmic gymnast and Phil Coke spiked his glove like it was jungle juice at one of them fraternity parties.
Seriously, look at Prince Fielder! Such raw emotion and schoolyard joy. Remember, he came to within an NLCS Game 6 of the World Series last year with the Brewers. So close he could taste it. And this year, that belly has tasted it. It tastes pretty good.
And Phil Coke. Was that happiness or anger? Just overjoyed to be in the World Series or vengeance fulfilled with the retribution he gave to the Yankees who sent him off to Detroit? Doesn't matter, that's an A+ spike. Kerri Walsh and Misty May-Treanor are jealous.
The rest is just your run-of-the-mill on-field celebration, which always seems a little more special when the home team gets to throw the party on their turf. So watch and enjoy your 2012 AL pennant winners, the Detroit Tigers.
