Sports Bio

Anyone that's read my posts knows I'm a diehard Detroit homer. The most memorable sporting event I've attended was game 4 of the 1997 Stanley Cup Finals. I had already been very lucky scoring playoff tickets that year, seeing game 1 of round one vs. St. Louis, the triple-OT game in Detroit vs. Anaheim, and watching the Wings paste Colorado 6-0 on home ice.

First and foremost, NoMich: you and your family please be safe.

Second, I don't see how you can blame the hockey team for the impending storm, even if they've had "an outrageous mockery of a team name." I mean, it's not like Arizona has been overrun with rabid coyotes...

I was just coming here to the LR to report this. It hasn't worked for me in 3 visits over yesterday and today. I am using Chrome version 66.0.3359.181 on Windows 10. Chrome started updating when I opened the About window, but that's the version I was using the last two days.

Jack Morris and Alan Trammell elected the Baseball Hall of Fame through the Veteran's Committee.

As a lifelong Tigers fan who grew up watching both, I take myself out of any debate about whether they belong. I'm just ecstatic that 2 members of the 1984 team made it in...
