The Detroit Tigers Lose The World Series, But David Eckstein Wins A Brand New Corvette Z06

Yeah, it's no surprise to most that I'd be a bit upset over the outcome of the World Series — that should be obvious to even the most casual observer of this site or, ya know, others. Still, I'm proud of my little Tiger team that could — they went farther than anyone expected. But, while watching the post-game, I did happen to notice that Chevrolet has completely taken over the game of baseball. Above you'll see a quick camera snapshot of the screen as 31-year-old Cardinals shortstop David Eckstein, receives both his MVP trophy and a bright yellow Chevy Corvette Z06. (Kudos to that, I'm sure, need to go to Corvette PRanista Travis Parman — who we've no doubt wheeled that 500+ hp beast onto the field himself.) Yup, the husband of Ashley "That 70's Show" Drane now finally has "my first car I can call my own from the beginning." What the hell's this dude been doing with his paycheck over the past five years — I thought selling out was a prerequisite. Hell, as you can see from the other pic we took below the jump — it's probably a rule in MLB.
