Who knew this Dwyane Wade guy existed?

    If the Tigers finish with the best record in baseball to join the Pistons and Red Wings with the loftiest records in their respective leagues, does that reach "Oh My Sweet Jumping Jesus On A Plutonium-Powered-Pogostick, What In The Flying Flaming Freaking Holy Hell Is The World Coming To??" status?

    Has any other city had the best record in three consecutive sports?

    Well, as long as the Tigers continue with the theme of not coming even close to living up to expectations in the playoffs.

    Not sure, but I know there have been a few cities that have won two titles in the same year.

    Boston in '04 (Red Sox and Patriots)
    Pittsburgh in '79 (Steelers and Pirates)
    New York in '86 (Giants and Mets)
    Los Angeles in '88 (Lakers and Dodgers)

    I'm sure there are others, too. I just can't think of any off the top of my head.

    Here's something else to consider. Miami is just a Stanley Cup away from completing a pro sports grand slam (titles in the NFL, MLB, NBA and NHL). Since the expansion era (which we'll call 1967), here's how many cities have accomplished that slam:

    New York

    Here's how many that have completed the trifecta

    Miami -- NBA, MLB, NFL
    Pittsburgh -- NHL, MLB, NFL
    Detroit -- NHL, MLB, NBA
    Philadelphia -- NBA, MLB, NHL
    Los Angeles -- NBA, NFL, MLB
    Chicago -- NBA, NFL, MLB

    What are the odds on Pittsburgh completing the slam?

    Still better than Detroit's, unless the NFL awards it an expansion team.

    Well, if the Tigers do it, and then the Lions, still guided by brain-dead Matt Millen, finish the slam by posting the best record in the NFL, that would definitely be a "Oh My Sweet Jumping Jesus On A Plutonium-Powered-Pogostick, What In The Flying Flaming Freaking Holy Hell Is The World Coming To??" moment.

    I think we're pretty safe. ::) ::)

    That was quite the alliteration rampage, Starman.

    Tom Crean's only marquee recruit/player ... well, can't really count Travis Diener - though he is a bench/role player for the Magic ...

    If you follow(ed) C-USA, you knew of Dwyane Wade.

    I gotta ask ... what kind of fucked up English is it when Dwayne is spelled Dwyane? Was someone making typos at the birth registry office?
