Everyone knows that Fenway was celebrated for its 100th year in existence the other day, but I didn't know Tiger stadium opened on the exact same day.

Just a nice article on the subject that I found and wanted to pass along. It's a nice read

"How many Birthday parties are held for dead people?"

While not a "party" there is Presidents Day, and uh Christmas (even though its not on the actual date he was born)...

Plus the Google homepage regularly commemorates dead people's birthdays.

While I think you're just looking for fights now, I mostly agree with you. I don't see much point in celebrating the 100 year anniversary of a building that no longer exists. Anything more than maybe a one line mention in a Tiger note in the paper would be excessive. If the stadium were still there... or even if that shell was still there, that may be different.

What about other historical buildings in Detroit? I'm sure some of them have even been in continuous use for that long.

I agree wit ya. It was just a posting of an article, to give a good read on an off day.

I just think he's sour cause he knows he is going to owe me a bunch of beers. :)

Sure! It's not like Detroit has anything else important going on. Everything else is pretty much just on cruise control now.

I pay money to the tigers which they then use part of to pay city taxes.

Do I get a say?

+1000

Wasn't looking to start an argument. Just thought it was kinda cool some people take time out of their lives to maintain the area out of respect for what was once there and I wasn't aware that it opened the exact same day as fenway.
