• Granderson Set To Say Goodbye To Motown

    Via Detroit News columnist Terry Foster:

    Curtis Granderson doesn’t know whether to wear a Yankees cap or a Tigers cap for his farewell weekend to Detroit.

    “Or maybe I will just wear some jeans and a T-shirt and remain neutral,” Granderson said.

    No matter what he wears, I plan to be part of it. In other words, I am exercising for a cause.

    This will be my most active week because a big weekend of charity work is on tap. But I am finding it difficult to curtail my eating.

    On Sunday, I will play in the third annual Curtis Granderson Celebrity Shoot Out at Birmingham Seaholm High School. Tipoff is 3 p.m. and tickets are $30 for adults and $25 for students.

    Donations will benefit inner city youths in Detroit. And sadly, the former Tigers center fielder is saying farewell to the city of Detroit as he begins his first season with the Yankees.

    “I don’t know if this is farewell,” Granderson said. “I really don’t know what I am going to say, but it is goodbye for now.”

    Celebrity players will include football stars Desmond Howard, T.J. Duckett, Will Gholston, and hoop legends Jalen Rose, Antonio Smith and Jimmy King.

    Lloyd Carr, Brian Rafalski, Ben Gordon and Lomas Brown will serve as celebrity coaches.

    Hey, Austin Jackson was a basketball player. Maybe he’ll pick this up after Granderson leaves town?

      He better not even sniff a Tigers cap for the remainder of his Yankee contract…I’m only PARTLY kidding here, lol.

      I’ll go as far as to agree with you, only being 100% serious.

      You’re a Yankee, dude. Wear neutral clothing and keep a cap out of it.

      @ YankCrank:
      Agree. Either wear your new colors or don’t wear any at all.

      Also, if he sees anyone wearing Boston’s colors, he has my OK to get Brian Rafalski to check ‘em into the first row of the seats.

      @ clintfsu813:
      LOL, neither do I. I gave up hockey years ago…coincidentally, around the time they started expanding it into your neck of the woods (where it clearly doesn’t belong).
