M-i-c..k-e-y M-o-u-s-e

Tomorrow the White Sox start a three game series in Detroit against their division rival Tigers.  One of the highlights of my annual trip to the Motor City Comic Con is a side trip to see the Tigers.  I am 4-0 rooting for the Tigers at Comerica Park.
I have sat in many sections at Comerica and sightlines and really good everywhere.  The rest of the stadium is excellent, too.  The food offerings are a little minimal, except for the big food and entertainment court in the outfield.
The stadium houses statues for a handful of legendary Tigers, but it also has a statue of a legendary mouse.  While Mickey Stanley had an excellent career and Mickey Tettleton had some great years, Mickey Mouse got a statue and he never was a Tiger (he's always been a mouse).  The Mickey statue is all jazzed up in Tigers artwork and is much more colorful that the real Tigers statues.
I couldn't resist grabbing a picture with this legendary mouse, even if he is trying to appear to be a Tiger.
