As bad as the Detroit Lions are that’s how good the Detroit Red Wings are. The Detroit Tigers offer equal hope. Just about everything else in Detroit may be falling apart but they’ve got two teams to keep their spirits up. Maybe a few antics by T.O. will spice things up.
The Detroit Red Wings are moving almost inexorably toward another shot at a Stanley Cup. Which, by the way, would make an even dozen for the Wings. For it not to happen the Chicago Blackhawks need a miracle. Not likely to happen.
The Detroit Tigers too, have given a reeling city reason for hope. The Tigers have managed to claw their way up to the top of the standings in the MLB American League Central, just a game ahead of the Kansas City Royals.
So, here’s to you Detroit. As much as you’ve been beaten down, you deserve to have some winners. I hope your Red Wings bring home another Stanley Cup. I hope your Tigers win the World Series. I hope I don’t lose all my money in that GM stock I bought.Eric Drouant
