While being a fan of a sports team can often bring out the worst in people, it can also provide a great opportunity for couples to cast their differences aside. And by couples, we mean former couples like Tito and Alexandria who still spend every Detroit Tigers Opening Day together.
At least, that’s the story they told Shannon Hogan of Fox Sports Detroit on Monday.
“(This is) where we first met,” Tito said. “Unfortunately, we’re divorced. But we still come back here every Opening Day…”
“And celebrate Opening Day together,” Alexandria chimed in.
Is it just me or did that have early April Fool’s joke written all over it? The people standing being “Tito” and “Alexandria” were howling, and it seemed like they knew the couple. I can’t imagine they would find it that funny that their friends are sharing their bizarre divorce story on television unless they aren’t actually divorced. Plus, there was this:
For the record that was NOT the story that couple told me off camera. #OpeningDayDET
