Since we’re voting on things…

Why not make Detroit a Monopoly city? I know I’d love to play Detroitopoly, so I’ve cast my vote.

Head on over to Monopoly’s website to write in Detroit as a wildcard city.

That’s right – those folks at Monopoly didn’t think enough of The D to place it on their list, so it’s only hope it to qualify for a wildcard spot.

    I’ve owned Detroitopoly since 2001

    I believe this is a contest to get on the World Edition of the game. I thought I had seen Detroitopoly at Pure Detroit. We want to convince the world that Detroit is a profitable place to build houses and hotels.

    That makes more sense Mollika. I guess that’s what happens when I try to read on the sly at work.

    A coworker told me this morning they’ve seen Detroitopoly at Pure Detroit as well. I can’t beleive I’ve never noticed it there, but that’s what happens when I get around clothes…everything else just fades away.

    Hey man this game is really cool….almost as cool as being carjacked on livernois and thrown into the back of a van where you are driven around and raped for hours only to be pushed out on the side of the road at w. grand blvd.

    am i the only one curious enough to have checked the website listed above? i guess i am which means i’ll have to also be the one to step up and tell this chunk of feces that has the guts to uses a screen name of "Detroiter" then includes a link to their pathetic, racist, idiotic, sorry excuse for a web site. yeah, freedom of speech, i know, whatever…if you (Detroiter) are so against it then why are you trolling pro-Detroit blogs? can someone in charge of the Metblog delete the link to that hate filled, racist pile of shit please?

    Yes, Max. I made the mistake of checking it out earlier today.

    It’s an awfully disgusting piece of work and, really, I’m embarrassed and ashamed that someone used my post to promote their bigotry. While I don’t think there is ever a proper vehicle for that kind of garbage, a pro-Detroit blog of all things isn’t place to put that.
