Morning Musings-Tiger Does Flint-As an ex-pat Michigander, it's fun to see Tiger playing the Buick open in metro Flint, where I worked for the last three years. It's even funner more fun to see him lapping the field, with a four shot lead at the halfway point. I haven't seen any stats as to how many extra fans trooped out to Warwick Hills to see El Tigre play, but I bet the crowds are up by 30-50%. Joey Harrington got a baptism of fire last night, giving up a game-winning interception in Detroit's 12-6 loss to Baltimore. Still, 12 for 21's not bad for the Disco Duck in his first pre-season game. McMahon was 8-20, so Harrington might have a shot of snagging a starting spot by September. Do you credit the Lions' defense of a lame Raven's offence for Baltimore's low score? Barry Bonds hit dinger number 600 last night. Maybe its due to his persona as an arrogant sonofapup or that I remember his dad playing, but it's hard for me to think of him as one of the all-time greats. An all-time grate, yes. This has been percolating for a while, but it's oddly funny that DC mayor Anthony Williams is having to run a write-in campaign after having his petitions thrown out for a high number of bogus signatures.
