Racing With Tigers

Racing With Tigers Racing With Tigers
Unfortunately I didn't manage to get a great tiger photo this year -- each time I tried, people would get in the way. Still, it's recorded for posterity. It's also been added to the collection, which is looking pretty cool I must say!

...and more importantly, the race went really well, and the fundraising went even better! I will get ribbons to the final people on my list this week, I promise.

(Also, I should note that I'm disappointed that the tiger has no pink ribbons. I'm totally cool with him wearing a Red Wings jersey (yay Wings!), but why wasn't he also festooned with pink ribbons like in years previous? Or at least ONE pink ribbon, to show his support?? That bothered me.)

Aww. I wish the tiger would have had that jersey on Saturday when I was there. :)

Congrats on the fundraising and the running, though. :)

I keep seeing pictures of that stone tiger where I'd expect to see the Spirit of Detroit statue. Where is it? Is it new?

Its out front of Comerica Park. Its as new as the park is, I suppose.

I think it's just seen by more people on a regular basis in the summer than Spirt of Detroit.

I dunno that it's seen more often in a normal summer. There are still a ton of festivals based out of Hart Plaza, right by the Spirit - but the Spirit is not currently viewable by the public.

True - I guess I was thinking of 10-day homestands where there's 40k people going into Comerica Park every day for a week and a half.\

If the Spirit isn't currently viewable that'd explain the switch to the Tiger, tho.

Yeah, but I hear estimates of numbers like a million people for the fireworks, and in the 100k's for events like the air races, the EMF (whatever they're calling it these days), the Red Wings victory parade, and stuff like that. And those are just the events of the last month. Downtown gets crazy busy in the summer. :)

Plus, I dunno what else the Tiger wears, but I figured the Red Wings jersey was an Illitch move.

I've never seen him wearing -anything-, which is why I said that the swtich from the Spirit made sense if it's currently off display.

It's out in front of Comerica Park, so it's as new as the park is. Spirit of Detroit is undergoing renovations, so it's currently out of sight behind giant screens.
