Restore the Roar
It is September 20. The Tigers? Still technically in it. And the reason this is killing every Tigers fan you know is because they've played just well enough (read: ridden the burdened backs of Jackson, Scherzer, Verlander, Cabrera, Fielder) to keep hope alive. Just long enough to make us believe that the potential we all believe is there actually is. They can still win this. They can still be AL Central champs, and ride the momentum through the post-season as they did in 2006, or the way they moved to the ALCS last year. But we're all ****ing sick of waiting for it. SERIOUSLY sick of it. Can 2012 PLEASE ****ING END. Seriously. Win, lose... I'm sick of it! The fact is that we're all tired of it. The frustrating thing is: they've still got all that talent on the roster, still got all the pieces that got RED ****ING HOT in September last year. They're there! There's still enough time! Hell, if they stay this close hope will reign until we get to game 162 and we're eliminated on the final day. And it is driving me balls out nuts.
