what's more dissapointing...

...The '84 Tigers getting swept by the last place Mariners after their 35-5 start. Or the Pistons going 5-4 after their 35-5 start, including a loss to last place Hawks?

i'd have to say the pistons. only because i cant say i was that disappointed back in '84 when the mariners swept the tigers...i was only three and i didnt live in detroit yet. come to think of it, shu, do you remember being disappointed when the mariners swept the tigers? or is this a retroactive disappointment on your part? ;)

retroactive dissapointment.
I did read a book by the pitching coach that detailed the day to day life that year. So I lived the dissapointment through him

I would say that the Tigers' three game streak was more disappointing. I distinctly remember that season, having been thirteen in the spring and summer of 1984. Yes, I know I'm dating myself. Anyway, back then I thought that the Tigers could win seven of every eight games the rest of the year. I now realize that maintaining that pace for 82 games, let alone 162 games, is near impossible and the failure to do so is no omen that the team cannot win the championship at season's end.

I don't think the Pistons ever got ahead of themselves. As they passed the thirty win mark and the media started asking about the possibility of seventy wins, the Pistons usually said that they will keep playing tough with the championship, not the regular season record, as their goal.

Yeah that's true,but it's totally possible that after they hit the 35-5 mark,something in their attitude changed,at least sub-conciously.I'm not saying that this is what happened,becuase obviously I wouldn't know,but I am saying that it's possible.
