"Don't push me cuz I'm close to the ...edge..I'm tryin not to LOSE my head...hehh ha hh huh..It's like a jungle sometimes...It makes me wonder how I keep from goin' under........." - Melle Mel Last night, I had a chance to see something never seen by any other Tigers fan in Detroit sports history. How special is a perfect game? Baseball has been played OVER 100 years....There are 162 games played by ONE team every year...There are 30 teams playing those games...That equates to over 480,000 games in MLB history...AND ONLY 20 PERFECT GAMES HAVE EVER BEEN THROWN and NONE by a Detroit Tiger pitcher!! The big issue that sets this game apart from any game ever played is that NEVER in MLB history has a game been decided by the LAST play. There was NO review. NO conferrrence by the umps. NO phone call from the commissioner. This is what's wrong with baseball. BUT, we can learn something from this....if we choose to. Yesterday, a pitcher showed us the value of sportsmanship. The value of dignity. The value of garce. Armando Galarraga's response to becoming one of the 21 most perfect pitching performances was a lesson we can teach our families and acquaintences. Yesterday, we had a man show the value of humility. The value of repentence. The value of sincere remorse. Jim Joyce did what I always hoped to see from anyone who was caught in a compromising decision and it's a lesson that I will teach my children. I'm calling it 'JimJoycing'. Next time I blow it, give me that ability to call myself out first. I hope BP Oil, our politicians, the Tiger Woods, Roger Clemons, Barry Bonds and the Mark McGwire's of the world all swallowed their spit a little bit last night. BTW, my wife can not locate a letter with a cashier's check made out to one of our debtors for $1200.00. No one can cash it, mind you, but the name on the check,if they find it. It had a stamp on it ,so we are hoping whoever fond it, just mails it. My wife feels terrible. I showed her the replay of Joyce's blown call. We all make mistakes. A human example owns up to it. A better example is forgiving about it.
