So long, Yankees!

The Official Flint Expatriates Playoff Shrine is in place.


  1. Nice little shrine Gordy. A daily reminder of good things to come....I hope. Who's the guy wearing the Tigers hat? He looks like one of the Vernors elves.

  2. That guy arrived in SF courtesy of my mom. I'm hoping he's related to the Vernors elves. And the shrine failed in game 1, but kicked into action for game 2.


Thanks for commenting. I moderate comments, so it may take a while for your comment to appear. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at
