The Forgotten Detroit

    This is weird. Today I was thinking about MLB teams and their stadiums - those I have been to (old & new) & those I have yet to visit. I could come up with 29 teams. I knew there were 30 but I just couldn't for the life of me remember that last one.
    So I looked this up on my home page search engine - BING - and typed in "mlb teams". They immediately came up with a scroll graphic showing the team names & icons (ex: The Cardinals has the red bird on the bat). What was really, really weird was they only had 29 teams too. Not 30! Where was team number 30?
   As it turns out BING had forgotten to show one of the teams & it was the exact same one that I couldn't remember. Looking further I discovered the missing team was the Detroit Tigers. I sent feedback to BING about this so that they might rectify their error.
   Okay, so both me and BING both forgot the same thing. I guess that is plausible. But I find it pretty weird that this is the case. That I could remember exactly the same 29 teams that BING did (or whomever programmed the graphic scroll).
   Just one bit of weirdness for the day I suppose.
