The Power of Sports

Sports are great.

An acquaintance of mine named Michael Gentz has been through a tough year, and the Detroit Tigers did a little something to make it better, as chronicled here.

Here I was, in the middle of the most difficult year of my life, looking across the city I’ve never been afraid of, toward the ballpark of the team I’ve never fallen out of love with, having just been guests of this same team who I’ve loudly cheered for and criticized all my life. Truly, for me, summer goes as the Tigers go, and it’s always been that way. Now, this summer, which is like none I’ve ever dealt with before, pushed the Tigers to the backseat a bit as I learn how to live this new life of mine. But for one night, they thanked me and they showed me that I am, and their fans are, more than just a seat filler. I can’t thank my friends and the Tigers enough. I only wish Dawn was there to share it with us. I suppose she probably was.
It is definitely worth a read.
