I swear to God, I love the Internet. I mean, I really do. Yes ladies and gentlemen, Nate Robertson has a blog.
Now I'm going to forgive you here if you say, "Nate who?" but only if you aren't a baseball fan. Robertson is #4 in my Detorit Tigers five man pitching rotation. He's been with the team for a while. Long enough to have started a few games during the dreaded 2003 season (yeah, yeah 119 losses. Blah, blah, blah)
Nate's in the spotlight thanks to "rally chew." Yep, when the Tigers are down in later innings, you'll see Robertson in the dugout with the World's Largest Wad Of Gum, just working away at it. And naturally the Tigers have pulled out a few games late. I am one of those who totally loved the Anaheim Angels Rally Monkey - but have to admit that "rally chew" works better on a certain level. Where else can you see grown men acting like little kids, but not making complete asses of themselves? It's kinda cute actually.
