ESPN.com - E-Ticket: Why Isn’t This Man Smiling?

For 46 years, Old Man Leyland got up and went to the glass factory, rising to foreman. He was alternately simple and complex, depending on the angle. He taught his children to love family, to cherish time together. He could also demand an unattainable perfection, sending his progeny out into the world chasing something that didn’t exist. Every member of these surprising Tigers, who have gone from perennial cellar dwellers to a playoff team, would recognize him.
