Tanana for President!

So read the signs posted in my dormitory at Hillsdale College, A.D. 1987.

The last time the Tigers made the playoffs.

Nineteen years ago. With some grim times since.

Now the Bengals are in again.

Pardon me if I just savor this one for awhile.

[Lest we forget, Frank Tanana was the finest junkballer in the history of baseball. The joke was that he heaved so many curve balls that by the time he uncorked his 85mph fastball, it looked like a laser. He is a fine Christian gentleman, to boot.]
