Speaking of Eminem; calling all copyeditors

How is it no one’s taken advantage of “Lose Yourself”‘s opening stanza — “Look, if you had one shot / one opportunity / to seize everything you ever wanted / one moment / Would you capture it / or just let it slip?” — when called on to produce pithy headlines for Dirtgate? (Eminem might rap about murderous incest and all that, but let’s be serious: before the ’06 Tigers, he was pretty much it for Detroit.) “Rogers takes shot, doesn’t let it slip”, “Rogers needs help to seize everything he ever wanted”…I mean, c’mon!

    A few quick comments on the Dirtgate lunacy:

    1) Pre-wash, Rogers pitched one inning and gave up a hit and a walk. Post-wash, he pitched seven innings and gave up a hit and two walks.

    2) David Cone was quoted by David Wells this year as follows: ‘if you ain’t cheatin’, you ain’t tryin’.’

    3) Gaylord Perry is in the Hall of Fame.

    Um, so the Lions might suck, and have done for a lot of years, but what about the Pistons and Red Wings? I seem to recall them having success recently.

    Oh, and don’t forget Kid Rock.
