Motor City Bowl

Did anyone go to the Motor City Bowl on Monday at Ford Field? I did not attend this year, but am going to make a point to go next year.

I’d love to get some feedback as to how it was from anyone that went.

After reading Terry Foster’s column about it yesterday, I, too, wonder why we don’t hype it up more. The bowl is in its ninth year, yet there doesn’t seem to be much excitement leading up to it – other than the big billboard at the end of I-375 downtown.

No, it isn’t the Rose Bowl, but wouldn’t it be a lot more fun if everyone hyped it up instead of just dismissing it? As Lawson’s article mentions, this bowl brings in $15 miilion in revenue for the city, and exposes outsiders to Detroit that probably wouldn’t make a trip here otherwise.

The teams that play work just as hard as all of the other football teams in their league, and, what’s more, they actually show some heart.
