This just in, on the "Things you probably already figured out, but hey, we've got 24 hours to fill" channel... The Tigers are pretty good.

Just (more or less) got back from watching Justin Verlander outduel Johan Santana.

Shoot, even when the Tigers seem determined to give the game away (A sample: "Wait, is that Magglio Ordonez? Trying to steal home? At half speed?"), they manage to come right back and do everything right. ("Wait, they've got the runner on first in a rundown! Don't! Don't throw to third! No! OK, well, he's out. That worked.")

Of course, the downside of the Tigers being good is that it's very possible that, if the Pistons lose again soon (The Ford's rooting against this -- he likes his OT very much, thank you.), the good people of the Motor City will have no choice but to attend Tigers games. Which means The Ford will feel very stupid for not buying cheap season tickets before the season. (Hey, if he'd known his schedule would give him an outside shot of seeing 40+ home games this year...)

Not as good as the Tigers, but probably more interesting to anyone NOT living in Detroit, (now THAT's what The Ford calls a segue) are these pics.

Maybe The Ford's just been reading/getting involved in too many photomanipulation debates, but these feel pretty hinky. At least, that's how they feel after a couple hours of careful study. But then again, staring at anyone's bikini-clothed ass, off and on, will feel pretty hinky, if done for a couple of hours.

There's probably a lesson in there, somewhere, perhaps even about staring at people's asses. The Ford chooses not to learn it.

In other news, being sans cable has kept The Ford blissfully unaware of American Idol. Until today, when it all of a sudden started leading vearious newspaper Web sites. Go figure. His only thought: This dude looks way too much like an SNL cast member to be the "American Idol."
C'mon, does the title mean nothing to you people?

Oh, and in honor of the Oilers knocking off the Sharks tonight, let's give a shoutout to the proud fans of Edmonton, who much as their team has this month, just seem to be getting hotter and hotter.

'Nuff said.

OK, the Jessica Alba/Eva Longoria photos are clearly doctored. You can see the feathering around Eva. Plus some of the shadows are going the wrong way (although props for addressing the obvious shadows).

Yeah, I know. But dammit, I WANTED to believe that Alba and Longoria would have nothing better to do than hang out together and sunbathe. Perhaps have a pillow fight at the same time.
