That stadium has the most beautiful empty seats, thousands and thousands of them.
2003-04-07 12:32:16 PM  
Well at least us (transplanted) fans have the Wings.
Go WIngs!
2003-04-07 12:37:11 PM  
The headline is misleading because the Tigers have scored 6 runs this season, which means that they have had at least 6 guys who have touched 3rd base and kept going. They've also had 3 doubles and 2 home runs, so it's not like they are doing horrible, they just have had one guy actually stop when he got to third base. They still suck though.

Nothing to see here, move along...
2003-04-07 12:40:15 PM  
If I had 'played six games' and only gotten to third once --- I would have moved to a monestary.
2003-04-07 12:48:50 PM  
Wait a sec.... *pulls out calculator..*
Six runs/Six games = Major suckage.

Wonder if they would let me play left field? I'd be a great DH too. :)
2003-04-07 12:48:55 PM  
They aren't hitting it.
2003-04-07 01:42:13 PM  
Those damn Yankees!

2003-04-07 02:11:57 PM  
Ahh.....but the real question is. "Whose on first?"
2003-04-07 02:15:16 PM  
close behind them in suckness are the Brew-crew, with a 0-6 record.
2003-04-07 02:46:24 PM  
Meanwhile, what's going on in KC? Don't those guys know they're not supposed to go 5-0 at the start?
2003-04-07 06:08:29 PM  
There's no way I can filter out sports news from showing up on the main page, is there?
2003-04-07 06:09:29 PM  
Go Yanks.
2003-04-07 06:11:27 PM  
Why the fark do we always end up with some loser complaining about sports on Fark? If you don't like it don't click it.

If you don't like it don't click it.

If you don't like it don't click it.

If you don't like it don't click it.

If you don't want to read about sports, skip the sports threads.

Life is really simple when you break it down.

The only thing detroiters use is the tigers logo, without the tiger. 313 Representing
2003-04-07 06:11:56 PM  
Duke sucks?
2003-04-07 06:13:21 PM  
The only thing I can say after looking at that lineup is, the payroll should be about $2 million. Most of those guys should be flipping burgers.
2003-04-07 06:13:40 PM  
6 games into the season the detroit lions won't have made a third down.
2003-04-07 06:14:34 PM  
Moonman9j9: Why the fark do we always end up with some loser complaining about sports on Fark? If you don't like it don't click it.

Yeah, but it sort of takes up a slot that could have been used for a non-sports related article.
2003-04-07 06:17:36 PM  
0-162! 0-162! Oh wait... that's Selig's great team! Never mind...
2003-04-07 06:17:47 PM  
Hey Moonman9j9, suck my butt. I don't click on them. I'm sick of seeing them. Forgive me for only wanting news about stuff that actually matters.

Go back to wasting your life watching men in tight pants chase balls around.
2003-04-07 06:18:43 PM  

Forgot about this one:


2003-04-07 06:19:37 PM  
That too, Lordargent. Plus it takes bandwidth. If we could pick the types of news we want to see, the pages would load a lot faster. It's often kinda slow, and I'm on a T1.
2003-04-07 06:20:53 PM  
Whose on first?

Your definately rediculous!
2003-04-07 06:21:00 PM  
Forgive me for only wanting news about stuff that actually matters.

Obviously, someone doesn't know how to read the top of the page, where it says very clearly:

complelety unrelated, but still great to see...Krause resigned today

2003-04-07 06:22:01 PM  

I vote, all Boobies and Florida.
2003-04-07 06:22:07 PM

Say hello to 8-0, Kansas City's playing in Detroit this week.


Go Royals, Screw Selig

2003-04-07 06:22:22 PM  
Something, right?
2003-04-07 06:22:44 PM  
Brewerfanforlife: Knowing the Brewcrew that's solo shots, and the club ERA is at 10.
[/bitter Milwaukee fan]
2003-04-07 06:25:20 PM  
Hahahaha. RoastBeef thinks Fark is for news that really matters. Man, I don't know if I ever could have made it through my day not knowing about that overturned bee truck in Florida.
2003-04-07 06:27:27 PM  
Can't say I'm suprised, Brewerfanforlife... WI deserves a better baseball team. :-(
2003-04-07 06:28:14 PM  
If I want to see news that matters, I go to Google News.

If I want b00bies and funny crap, I come here.
2003-04-07 06:28:14 PM  
Brewerfanforlife, if we could select what categories we want to see, then you could unselect all except sports if you want.

Greasedninja, sounds good.

Miles_OToole, right, Fark isn't a news site. [image from too old to be available]
2003-04-07 06:29:50 PM  
By the way, your Tampa Bay Devil Rays are 2-5... woo-HAH!
2003-04-07 06:30:24 PM  
PlatinumDragon, sports news is neither boobies nor funny. Except for the occasional Kournikova nip shot or whatever.
2003-04-07 06:31:15 PM  
[image from too old to be available]? This is [image from too old to be available] as hell! I'm wondering who will get to 100 first, Detroit and Milwaukee (losses) or Yankees and A's (wins).
2003-04-07 06:31:37 PM  
Anyone blaming Bush for this yet?
2003-04-07 06:32:37 PM  
It was fun being in Detroit when they won is 84 tho... almost burned the city down.
2003-04-07 06:32:59 PM  

As a former St Louisan, consider the football cardinals our gift to you. Sorry that Bill Bidwell came attached.
2003-04-07 06:35:37 PM

Some other fun facts about my Tigers that should be noted:

They are the first team to go 0-6 in back-to-back seasons since the woeful NY Mets' first two seasons of existence.

The teams that have feasted on them thus far this year have a combined 0-6 record against everybody else.

As was noted in an earlier thread on the Motown Kittens, their starting pitching corps has a combined lifetime Major League victory total of 8.

The Tigers now have the distinction of eating the largest contract in baseball history. They gave Damion Easley $14 million in guaranteed contract money when they told him to go away, releasing him in spring training. Although Tampa Bay has since signed Easley to the league minimum salary (guess they haven't quite filled their quota of sucky players, unlike the Tig's), Detroit must still pay the remainder of Easley's guaranteed money.

Oh, it's bad. You have no idea how bad. Actually, I guess now you do.

red wings suck
2003-04-07 06:40:26 PM  
Tigers, Bengals, Tigers, Bengals...

Pattern, anyone?
2003-04-07 06:42:38 PM  
RoastBeef: I don't click on them.

I have evidence to the contrary. You clicked on this one.
2003-04-07 06:43:54 PM  
Detroit was leading 2-1 against the white sox at the top of eight. Oh, then the sox scored 8 runs in the bottom of the eight. Go pistons!
2003-04-07 06:47:16 PM  
Gee I'm in England so therefore,


ps. Just watched Bowling for Columbine. I will NEVER move back to the states.
2003-04-07 06:48:32 PM  
Detroit is not only 0-6, but the teams they have lost to HAVEN'T WON ANY OTHER GAMES, except for their victories over Detroit. Ouch!
