Does everyone know what time it is?
While some grew up with Mike Brady or Cliff Huxtable, I grew up with Tim Taylor. I would not know how to hammer a nail into my finger if it weren’t for the misadventures of Taylor on his show Tool Time
But when he wasn’t destroying, fixing, and re-destroying homes and gadgets on Tool Time, he was parenting his three kids. You can question his parenting skills. After all, how did Mark suddenly decide to go Goth? That was just weird. But you can’t question the effort he made with his kids. He was always there and he always pushed them to be their best. Granted, Wilson did most of the real parenting.
Like just about every father on this list, Taylor is a big sports fan. He likes Detroit sports, but we won’t hold that against him. You can’t help where you live.
Best Fit: Detroit Tigers
The Tiger have no won a playoff game since Jim Leyland retired. Brad Ausmas was mediocre and Ron Gardenhire isn’t off to the greatest off starts. And, let’s be honest, Gardenhire is 6-21 in the postseason. He’s not taking the Tigers very far. Detroit needs fixing.
They need handiest man on the market. They know what time it is. It’s tool time. Backed by assistant manager Wilson and assistant to the manager Al, the Tigers are poised for postseason success once again. And if Tim Taylor can’t fix them, at least you know he’s going to tear them down for a full blown rebuild.
