TIGERTOWN-If you went into Metropoli-
tan Airport last night to pick up your grand-
mother, you were out of luck.
You were out of luck because the airport's run-
ways, its entrances, its grassy areas, its fences,
its parking lots, and even its adjoining express-
way were clogged with thousands of deliriously
happy Detroit Tiger fans who turned out to
salute their heroes upon a victorious return from
St. Louis.
Estimates of the size of the screaming, yowl-
ing, and partially drunk crowd ranged from one
harried policeman who said "under 25,000" to
nine-year-old Mike Swan who said matter-of-
factly that there were at least "a hundred mil-
lion" there. Most estimates centered around
But the people waited in vain, because after
two hours of delay, confusion, and' unchecked ru-
mor, the Bengals touched down at Willow Run
Airport, miles away from all' but about 2,000 of
their supporters.
"It's impossible for them to land here," said
United Airlines representative Jack Gamble at
7:4.5 when the plane had been originally sched-
uled to arrive. "Even ift we managed to somehow
clear all of the people off of the runway, there's
still tons of debris left out there."
The debris consisted of innumerable smashed

beer bottles, confetti as far as the eye could see,
pennants, and an untold number of signs.
The rumor situation quickly got out of hand.
and even the airline officials seemed boggled on
the question of where the Tigers would land.
Windsor was mentioned, along with Flint, Cleve-
land, and Toledo, and one official said it "could be
anyplace between here and Chicago1 but I assure
you; that plane will not land within 100 miles of
Atthe Flint airport, a thousand fans main-
tained a hopeful vigil on the hunch that the
Bengals would be routed there.
Most of the air traffic that had been regularly
scheduled into Metro was rerouted to Toledo be-
cause of the mob scene.
The focal point for the crowd was around the
United Maintenance Terminal where several tele-
vision mobile units had been set up.
The masses were relatively calm until the
camera crews turned on their lights and started
broadcasting. This nearly sent the people berserk.
"When the red light comes on, jump in front
of the camera," screamed one fellow to his girl.
"Honey, honey, I'm on TV," said a middle aged
pman to his ecstatic wife.
"My flash cube, my flash cube, pick- up my
flash cube," hollered a cheerleader type, trying
to take a picture of the happy crowd.
Throughout the entire time the fans were at

The idea met strong opposition
