Xmas Factor

November 21, 2011

Santa doesn’t exist. Yeah, I said it. He’s like a backup catcher that can hit his weight or sex with a Fox Sports Detroit Girl — it exists only in our imagination. That means you have to drag your ass out of bed at some forsaken hour of the morning and stand in line with a bunch of mouth breathers at Walmart and buy some shit. Or even worse yet, since society has gotten such a boner for early shopping, stores are opening on Thanksgiving night.  You haven’t even licked your wounds from the latest Lions loss before you are out filling your cart with any piece of garbage that people seeming to be clustering around.

Why do we do this? Because we love our family and friends, that’s why. What’s that you say? You have someone on your shopping list that you don’t give two squirts of piss about? Perfect! Cross them off your list completely and add someone you truly have affection for – a Detroit Tiger.  That’s right, stick it to creepy uncle Roger and show your favorite Tiger you care.  So as you head out to brave the retail battlefield, here are some Tigers gift ideas.

Many of the items are clickable in case your are dying to see the details

    If this is the result of a nervous breakdown, then more people should have broken nerves. All these ideas are hilarious. 🙂

    You have no fear! Penny, Miggy, and Pauley were seriously top notch. On a side note I think it is cool the way you charge out of the bullpen. It sets a tone, like I’m in charge and I’m not fucking around.
