ROYAL OAK, Mich. -- The Voglesong family rapped their way into Justin Verlander's heart.  Via Twitter, Verlander awarded them two tickets for Game 3 of the ALCS.

Mom Cheryl, dad Glenn, son Fred and daughter Allison -- that's four people and only two tickets.  Allison is in Traverse City, so two tickets and three people.  Who's going?

"I'm gonna go for sure," said Cheryl Voglesong.

Okay, one ticket, two people, and Fred, as creator, gets the start.

"It was thrown together in a day, so it's probably not the top quality that I could've put out.  So there (are) a few haters," he said.

There is no recording contract yet, but the patriarch is proud nonetheless.

"I'm the luckiest guy in the world.  I have a great family, and we love being together no matter how silly the things we do," said Glenn Voglesong.
