FLASHBACK: Tigers’ Victor Martinez dances around catcher to score

Victor Martinez had a tremendous career and during that time, he had some memorable moments. One of those moments came on July 19, 2011, when the Detroit Tigers played the Oakland Athletics at Comerica Park.

Watch as Martinez, who was on first base, comes all the way around to score after dancing around and outsmarting Athletics’ catcher Kurt Suzuki.

What a play by V-Mart! It is certainly one we will never forget.

Ryan’s Lions Betting Preview Week 3 Edition

After being blown out by the Jets on Monday Night Football at home in the season opener, the Lions rebounded (sort of) when they only just barely lost on the road o the 49ers in week 2. Sitting at 0-2 on the season, the Lions are 1-1 against the spread after a late “back door cover” where Detroit was a six point underdog, and lost 30-27.

Detroit trailed 30-13 in the fourth quarter, but closed the gap on two Matthew Stafford touchdown passes–the last one to Michael Roberts with 3:27 remaining in the game to get within a field goal. A late Lions interception was nullified by a defensive holding call to preserve the win for the 49ers.

In my betting preview of the Lions games, I have “successfully” (read unsuccessfully) been on the wrong side each week, as I laid the points against the Jets, and then laid the points with San Francisco. As for the totals, I was correct in Week 1 in prognosticating that the Jets game would go over, but last week I felt the game would go under 48.5 points, but was wrong.

I did manage to split the “other” two bets I proposed, as the New Orleans Saints could barely get past the Cleveland Browns (who won this Thursday after 635 days of futility), but the Sunday Night game DID in fact go under the total. I sit at an even 4-4 on the season, which is not profitable. Time to get on the “good” side this week.
