You’d think a couple of guys from a place voted Best New Bar wouldn’t look like wallflowers at a party, right? But Brent Foster (left) and bartender/partner Joe Robinson from Standby pulled it off.

Boys of Summer 

Not that anyone needs reminding, but the last time the Detroit’s “Boys of Summer” won the World Series, it was 1984. And although a little voice in Don Henley’s head once said, “Don’t look back, you can never look back,” the voice of the Detroit Tigers, Dan Dickerson (part of a three-way tie for Best Play By Play), says otherwise. In an April interview with WJR, Dickerson cited the past as inspiration. “The fact that (the Tigers) were predicted to defend their title last year and finished last, there’s just a little extra motivation, a little extra drive in this team this year,” Dickerson said. Here’s hoping he’s right. detroit.tigers.mlb.com
