The Detroit Free Press published an article on Tuesday evening that -- were you not familiar with the FreeP before then -- might very well be mistaken for an item in The Onion.
The Jeff Seidel article talks about what a "strange baseball town" San Francisco is -- and by extension, how super-awesome Detroit is at being ... uh ... un-strange baseball? SB Nation unveiled its inaugural Troll Tuesday column this week and boy, we can't even hold a candle to this piece. Seidel takes ineffective strawman trolling and turns it into an art form with passages like this one: And then they have a giant slide, which looks like a McDonald's play station on steroids.
Yeah, the Tigers have a carousel. But carousels are cool.
Slides? That's for a playground.
But that's just the start.
AT&T Park isn't a baseball stadium. It's an exotic food court that happens to have a baseball field.
Mmmmmmm, that's good one-sentence-paragraph newspaperin'!
On Wednesday, the paper proved that they're not some one-troll pony, as they churned out another World Series-related piece just as insipid as the first, on how to "sound like" a Detroit Tigers fan. Keep up the great work, Detroit!
