HEY EVERYBODY!  HAPPY OCTOBER!!

GO TIGERS GO!

GO TIGERS GO!

Yup, here it is…October!  The Detroit Tigers could clinch the division today, if they don’t screw up against the Minnesota Twins.  Time will tell and there will be commentary tomorrow here on the Big Ol’ Blog!  But for now…GO TIGERS GO!  This is also Domestic Violence Awareness Month as well as Fire Prevention and Safety Month and Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Events connected to all three served as the focus discussions on today’s show.  Here’s how it all shook down!
