WXYZ - Tony the Tiger is calling on all Michigan mascots to support the Detroit Tigers.
He's urging mascots to join him in rallying for the Tigers this weekend in game 3 and 4 of the World Series.
"I've got nothing against San Francisco, but it's only natural that I have strong allegiance to Detroit, as both a tiger and a Michigander," said Tony, who makes his home in Battle Creek, Michigan "This is a big deal for our state, and I urge my fellow mascots across Michigan to show their stripes and join me in supporting our Detroit Tigers."
"Let's get this state rocking and share our love of the Tigers," said Tony. "Mascots from across Michigan, let's show the Tigers that we think…They're Gr-r-r-reat!"
All fans and mascots alike are encouraged to share their love for the Tigers on Kellogg's Facebook page and on twitter.
