Before the Tigers totally blew first place in the Central Division, they were playing games at Comerica park in some rather cold weather. This woman endured the cold to witness their demise.

This lady will tell you, Detroit is a baseball town - the evidence is in her bare shinned witnessing of the Tigers fall from first in their last few games.

Now that I think about it, the real Superfan is actually her son who was recognized the “Superfan-ness” in his own mother enough to suit her up and wheel her around the park. Go Tigers.

My father, a resident of the ICU in Detroit’s VA hospital was the recipient of a lovely “Best Wishes Cake” on his 63rd birthday. The cake was also accompanied by two cups of ice cream, a balloon and a musical Three Stooges card the brought a tear from my father’s eye. He happens to be a big Three Stooges fan. I ate the ice cream, but the cake is in the freezer.

In Greensboro, NC you’ll find the Super G Market located in FantaCity – a magical shopping center located at 4927 W. Market St. The Super G Market has a lot of strange products (strange to silly Americans like myself) shipped over from Japan, China and even Mexico!

Here is a sampling of the delight you’ll find at the Super G Market…

The black barley tea energy drink from Japan that makes you stand up out of your cube and say, "Hello Boss!"

A large "Luxury Squid" that feels dry and not delicious.

If you get bored with all the strange groceries at the Super G, then you can always venture to the back of the store where they’ve recently opened the Flea Market. When I was there, the flea market was fairly empty but I did buy a few records – George Carlin, The Cars, Heart, and the soundtrack for The Electric Horseman.

The shirt said "Army Girl" and I'm not sure what the hair said, but she sold me my records.

Great copy is the key to strong sales.

If you’re in the area, the Super G Market is worth dropping in on. There’s a bit of a fishy smell in the place that reminds me of the 6th grade when we dissected squid. Don’t let that shy you away.

I just have this craving for a pickled cucumber.
