World Series in the 'Big D'

I thought I would weaken my long-term financial outlook and take my godchildren to the World Series.

I was willing to pay the $250 bucks each. That's expensive, but who knows when Detroit will get into the World Series again? For Michigan, World Series games appear in an irregular pattern once every couple decades, like comets.

Based on the team's history, by the time the Tigers are in the fall classic again, I might not be in the lineup any more.

And lots of them had tickets to sell. I wasn't too worried about the price I might have to pay, since I knew the Tigers were firmly against scalpers; their advertising was always full of stern warnings against trying to jack up the prices and resell tickets to their games.
