Detroit’s Sports Superstar?

something’s missing in the Detroit sports world… and no, i’m not speaking of a winning season for the Lions… the now empty ad on Cadillac Tower near Campus Martius got me thinking…

SD’s latest post (the one previous to this one) asked what we’d like to see up on the side of Cadillac Tower and to be honest, i actually hoped that they’d put a sports figure up there… i liked it when they had the huge pictures of Barry Sanders or Steve Yzerman… but now that Ben Wallace has left, Detroit is missing that big name sports superstar…

first question: what current Detroit sports figure could you see on the side of Cadillac Tower??? meaning, who do you think is worthy enough right now of taking up that ad??? Chauncey Billups comes to mind, but doesn’t really seem to fit exactly… i can’t think of one Red Wing, Lion or Tiger that would fit either… not right now…

second question: what current Detroit sports figure do you think might end up being worthy of the ad on the side of Cadillac Tower??? this question is all about potential… who has the most potential to the next big Detroit sports superstar??? Tigers Pitcher Justin Verlander seems to be a favorite now and looks like he’s going to be really awesome… Lions Wide Receiver Roy Williams certainly has the potential to be great… and something we have yet to see the best of the Pistons’ Tayshaun Prince…

so in your opinion, who’s Detroit next sports superstar???

    Jim Leyland. Just a full building-sized ad of Jim’s “Serious Face.”

    How intimidating would that be?

    johnny, that is hilarious!! it would be quite intimidating, but perhaps, too intimadating… we still want people to enjoy Campus Martius!

    I’d be down with Henrik Zetterberg, Joel Zumaya, Justin Verlander, or Tayshaun.
