Michigan????

 

It's a slogan for the Detroit Tigers. It began at the very end of the 70's and really gained steam through the 80's, including their World Series win. I believe a TV station for the Saints adopted the phrase later in the 80's as well. BTW, bless you boys . com is the Detroit Tiger site for sb nation.

Yeah I recall WWL (CBS) channel 4 in New Orleans started it in 1987 when we first made the playoffs.......

 

 

 

It fits better with a nickname like "Saints"....

Great picks Leo! Very diverse to. A little Atari, Sega & Nintendo. 

I thought the plug n play would make a nice addition to your collection! ;)

My haul!

 

- A Space Invaders tie! I'm not a skinny tie guy, but I've had my eye on this one for a long time

- Demons to Diamonds & Dark Cavern instruction manuals. Now I just need to get the DC cart!

- A SWEET Han Solo in Carbonite poster!

- Spy Hunter & Silent Service NES carts, two that weren't in my collection

- A Bloom County book (so happy it's back, but really looking forward to time-traveling back to the 80s!)

- A Garfield book! I loved him BITD too & I was a little envious of Leo's book  :D

 

THANKS!!! I'm packing up the box with my replacements, which I think should be well-received. We shall see!

Glad some of my stuff found a new home!

It was kinda hard to let go of the tie and poster, but then I realized I don't like wearing ties at all and I have no room to hang up poster! :)

Once I figure out how to hang posters on cement walls (unfinished but dry & temperate basement is my gaming cavern), I'll have that poster hanging. HSIC has always been one of my favorite things from the Star Wars trilogy. This is my phone holder on my work desk:

Try these to hang posters.  They sell them at most Target-type stores:
