Quote of the day

I grew up in a home where the radio was permanently set on WJR; I thought George-Kell-and-Ernie-Harwell was one word.  I’d fall asleep listening to my parents discussing the merits and flaws of various Detroit players, and by the time I was twelve I wanted one of my own, a Tiger, my very own player to root for and adore.  In 1962, my goals in life were to be the first woman governor of Michigan and to marry Rocky Colavito.
