Traditions Evolve

What is your opinion?

Do you love him or do you love to Hate him????

Ty Cobb Sliding homeBaseball is a game with many traditions. The classic photo of Ty Cobb above, one of the greatest Detroit Tigers, shows him exposing his sharpened baseball cleats to the catcher with the ball ready to tag him out. Nowadays, players do not wear metal cleats. The tradition of "taking out" the shortstop or second baseman to break up a double play is still in existence but, without the metal cleats. The traditions remain but they do evolve.

We want to thank the many readers who have sent letters, tweets, and emails to the media, the Tigers and Sportservice and we want to apologize to those readers who are not interested. But time is of the essence. We hope that the Tigers go all the way to win the the World Series. If they do then there will be at least x number of games at Comerica Park where Charley can sing and sell hot dogs.

To those who have sent letters, please send a copy to Charley's Union at [Unite HERE Local 24 300 River Place Suite 2700 Detroit, MI 48207-4472]. They have been left out of the loop and they, too, need the ammunition to defend Charley. The address of Sportservice is [ Detroit Sportservice Comerica Park 2100 Woodward Ave. Detroit, MI 48201 313 471-2600]

Also send a letter to Charley, [charley@singinghotdogman.com] asking him to change his defense of the "No Ketchup in Baseball tradition" to be without the cleats.

Back in 2004 he was silenced but that happened in the early part of the season and the Tigers were not drawing the crowds that they do now. Many fans, including season ticket holders, rallied to Charley's assistance and management relented with some restrictions.

Michigan Traveler: Tour planner caters to single travelers

October 6, 2013

By Ellen Creager

The Michigan Traveler

Eating alone.
Paying a single supplement to get a one-person room.
Being the only solo in a sea of couples.
If you are single, traveling can be awkward and costly.

"Every time I wanted to go on a trip, I'd call the company and say I didn't have a roommate, they would charge me a single supplement," says Janet Blair of Rochester Hills. "I'd say, 'If you get a call for a single person, I'm available.' But they don't do it that way. If you don't sign up with a roommate you pay the single supplement automatically."

Blair didn't just whine. She did something about it. The operator of the Successfully Single Social Club expanded into travel. In the last four years she has taken groups of singles on numerous cruises, to Yellowstone, Mt Rushmore and the National Parks, Costa Rica, Egypt, New Zealand, Thailand, Dominican Republic, Russia and now, Budapest, Vienna & Prague in November.

Next year? New Zealand, Turkey and African Safari.

She'll match up singles with a roommate to keep costs down. She sometimes cajoles nervous people to be brave enough to go. She encourages exhausted single parents to take a few days for themselves. She caters to people ages 45 and up.

And she is hoping for something even more -- the transformative power of travel to relax you, so you can meet others as they really are --and just maybe find the next love of your life.

"If people go to a dance, they might chat for an hour or two, but that is very different from being with someone for at least a week, when you really get to know someone," says Blair. "We have romances all the time. Still, I don't encourage people to come with the expectation that they are going to meet somebody. It's about a wonderful destination, having a great time, not going alone."

Many of her travelers are experienced and want exotic destinations. Others are brand new, and travel for them is like jumping off a cliff.

"I just signed up a single guy for Budapest, Vienna & Prague and he has never left the country before," Blair says, admiration in her voice.

One single mother of a 15-year-old recently came on a trip to Punta Cana -- the first time she ever took a vacation without her child.

Blair's trips often use Gate 1 as the tour operator. For New Zealand, where she has been many times, she planned and will lead that trip herself Feb. 4-20 ($1,899 plus airfare). Blair is a certified New Zealand travel specialist by the New Zealand tourism board.

You don't need to be a member of Successfully Single to sign up. But membership gives you access to dances and other social events. Also upcoming for 2014 are Turkey in June and Africa in September, with details still being arranged (www.successfullysingle.org, 248-289-6406).

If you don't want to pay the single supplement (usually a 50% to 100% higher rate), Blair will match you up with another person in your age range and gender to save money. Women, she says, tend to sign up for trips with their friends, but those who are solo may need the service. Men are more likely to sign up on their own and need a roommate.

Blair, who also does Web design and runs a business networking company, was married once. She has not yet found love on a trip. But that is OK.

"I have tried to make the most of my single life," she says. "A lot of people can't stand being single. And they are not very discriminating when it comes to selecting their next partner. They are afraid of being alone. I'd love to have somebody in my life, but in the meantime, I'm going to have a wonderful life for myself - and that includes travel."

OCTOBER 7--ROOM 237 (2013) - In 1980, Stanley Kubrick released his masterpiece of modern horror, The Shining. Over 30 years later, audiences, film fanatics and scholars alike are still struggling to understand its hidden meanings. Rodney Ascher's documentary fuses fact and fiction through interviews with both fans and critics, creating a kaleidoscopic deconstruction of Kubrick's still-controversial classic.

Each Sunday will be a different location, and at a different time.

A staff or a pair of hiking poles is recommended but optional. Backpackers are welcome to use these trips to practice gearing up. Maps will be distributed upon arrival. There are no parking fees and most of the time no park entry fees. Your only cost will be how much cider and donuts you purchase! RSVP to: Our host by the Saturday before each hike.
