Yea, I’m From the D’ and Proud of It!

You know sometimes I have to wonder to myself what other people think about the D’. I mean, if I was living in, say in L.A. or New York or Horsebreath, GA., I would have to think how does Detroit do it.? Here is a city that has an economy so depressed we are second only to New Orleans and yet Detroit is the greatest city on the planet when it comes to sports. In the last two years it’s been one right after the other.

The All Star game, SBXL and the World Series of MLB in 06′ and now, in 07′, the Pistons, the Wings and the Tigers are all on top of their game. We may be in a depression, (maybe?) but we love our sports! The Red Wings are in the Western Conference Finals for the first time in five years. (Wings is six!) The Pistons came back last night to defeat the Chicago Bulls after being down by 19 points and have the Bulls on the verge of illimination and, like the rabbit on TV, our boys from Comerica Park just keep on going. Keep in mind they don’t have Zumaya and Rogers and still have the best pitching in the league. Think Robertson, Jones, Verlander and Fernando Rodney!

It has occured to me that we should hire the staff of these incredibly gifted teams to run the city of Detroit. Think of it as a professional sports team instead of a corporation which is exactly what it is. After watching city council woman Joannne Watson trying to get by the Sheriff’s Deputy the other day because she didn’t have proper ID to enter the Coleman A. Young Building, Tom is correct, (see “Joanne Watson is Crazy Awesome” May 9th), let’s start with her.

    I am a born and raised member of the D and even as I’ ve travelled I’ve been proud to tell people where I am from.
    The only bad thing I would say about your post is that you stated best pitching in the league and listed Fernando Rodney as one of them. That’s funny. Even most bandwagon Tiger fans know that Rodney is not trustworthy…kinda like Todd Jones. I think they should consider trading Rodney. If Jones steps up, he can get the job done, but watching him try for a save is like a trainwreck at times.

    We have really efficient parking ticketers. They would do a fine job running the city :0)
