My favorite non-Tiger media moment of the weekend:

During a Mets game, WFAN's Wayne Hagin spoke at length about his lifelong love of air shows, and of once riding upside down with the Blue Angels.

While this was going on, Howie Rose said little or nothing, and even in his silence I sensed what he was thinking: "What do I know from air shows? I'm a kid out of Cardozo High in Bayside!"

Sure enough, Howie finally chimed in thusly: "I flew a kite once."
