TigsTown Roundtable: Thankful For

Ready to talk Tigers? Want to hear the opinion of the TigsTown staff? Welcome to the TigsTown Roundtable! This week's question: As a Tigers fan, what are you thankful for?

Paul Wezner, Executive Editor
As a Tigers fan, despite such a tough season, there is so much I'm thankful for. I'm thankful for having one of the best hitters in the game locked up for his prime. I'm thankful for having an outstanding stadium that really gets too often overlooked. I'm thankful for a homegrown centerfielder that is not just a great ballplayer, but a great person. I'm thankful that in a year of trying times, we still had 3 million-plus fans support the team. I'm thankful that we have an owner that has been willing to spend when the time came. I'm thankful for a stud pitching prospect that will blow Tigers fans away in 2010. I'm thankful for the 2006 season, and the memories I still have from it. I'm thankful that each and every day, I get to spend time "working" as a Tigers fan. But most of all, I'm thankful for all the people I've met and befriended through this team and this community, and thankful to know that I'm sure there will be much more to come. Happy Thanksgiving to All!

Mark Anderson, Managing Editor
As a Tiger fan I am simply thankful that I have a game and a team that I find so fascinating. There are days of joy. There are days of anger. But in the end, its this great game that brings people together with the commonality of rooting for the Detroit Tigers. Even when the team is down, they bring people of every corner of the earth together -- all nationalities, all backgrounds, all everything -- to root for their team; the Detroit Tigers. Whether that togetherness came on the corner of Michigan and Trumball, at the corner of the the local sports bar, or in some little Tiger-crazy corner of the Internet like TigsTown, we're all together in our love of this game and this team. I'm thankful that all of you are out there cheering with me and that we're only a few short months from another wonderful season of Tiger baseball! Happy Thanksgiving and Go Tigers!

Jason Avery, Associate Editor, Amateur Baseball
As a Tigers fan, I'm thankful that they have players like Curtis Granderson and Miguel Cabrera that are not only fun to watch, but are players that will be the core of the team for the next several years. I'm thankful that I get the chance to cover the draft and get the opportunity to write about and talk to players who could one day play in the major leagues. I'm also thankful for the many colleagues and subscribers that share the same passion of wanting the Detroit Tigers to be the best team in the majors. We're certainly going to have disagreements on personnel moves, but if we all agreed on everything, that would be boring. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone, and I hope everyone enjoys the holiday and their turkey.
