What the ... ?

Okay, I do understand that theoretically, the home team is supposed to win their games, so the Redwings-Predators series is supposed to be tied up at 2, right? That is all in theory, right?

This is the scary thing about the playoffs though. Anything can happen in a seven game series and the fact that the Predators are hanging around scares the dickens out of me. Everyone knows how pivotal Game 5 is in this type of situation.

Is Coach Babcock feeling the pressure by opting to start Osgood instead of Hasek tomorrow night? This game is huge for the Wings, let us hope he is dialed in.

Go Redwings!

Anyone but the Irish ...

Michigan hockey out of the Frozen Four against Notre Dame. Seriously, just about anyone but that school, this is killing me ...

Quit panicking people

Jeez, if you believed the "experts" on ESPN, the Tigers baseball season is done and they should pack it in. Yeah, they finally got their first win, but does anyone with a clue really believe they're done already?

Verlander is too good to pitch as horrible as he did last Sunday and that offense was predicted to score 1000 runs for a reason. Everyone just needs to calm down and support the team, it's early!

Go Tigers!

Dontrelle Willis

Hey hey Tigers fans! I gotta tell you, I am always up for any sport Detroit style, but for me, baseball is where it's at and I'm plenty excited about our Tigers. I have to wonder though ...

Dontrelle Willis I think was a great pick-up. But let's not deny his spring numbers: a 1-3 record; 8.64 ERA; 16 2/3 innings pitched over six games and not getting out of the fourth in any game; 15 walks compared to 12 strikeouts. I think he will get things ironed out. What do any of you think?

After reading some of these posts, I decided to try out this RazorGator site I saw one of you talk about, because I decided, last minute as usual, to get some Opening Day tickets to see the Tigers pound the Royals. I was impressed! Great tickets in section 133 were still left and were actually discounted about $40 a pop. That I wasn't expecting, so grabbed them up and am really happy with the process. I will use them again.

Go Tigers!

Michigan Wrestling!

Well, a fine finish to the season last weekend for our Wolverines! Four wrestlers finished in the Top 8 for All-American status, starting with Josh Churella at 149lbs in 4th and Tyrel Todd at 184 lbs in 3rd. How about two guys in the finals! Eric Tannenbaum at 165 lbs and Steve Luke at 174 lbs, both finishing second. As a team the Wolverines finished in 7th and 4th out of the Big Ten schools. A great weekend in St. Louis, let's do it again next year!

Some good news from our Wolverines ...

I figured since March Madness starts today and our Wolverines weren't invited that we needed some good news ...

Michigan Hockey is ranked #1 and plays this weekend for the CCHA Championship.

Six wrestlers from the wrestling team travelled to St. Louis this week to compete in the NCAA Championships which start today. Kellen Russell, Eric Tannenbaum and Steve Luke were all Big Ten champions.

Of course, losing Terrell Pryor to OSU does put a damper on things ...

Glad To Be Here

Hello Detroit. I just wanted to take a minute to thank Mad Mike and the boyz at DF4 for adding me on as an author to the blog. I know they have plans to get things cooking and I'll be happy to contribute.

Let's start with the Lions. Starting 6 and 2 and finishing 7 and 1 is a cruel thing to do to fans but 08 should see the team learning how to finish a season.

The Pistons - 34 and 13 and leading the division by 7 and 1/2.

The Wolverines - I still can't bring my self to say anything nice at this point.

The Tigers - Granderson Locked Up Until 2012

The Red Wings - Leading the NHL with 40 wins and looking at an 7-game win streak.

As always it's good to be a fan in this town.

Eastern Conference Championship - Game 1 - Detroit

After making quick work of the Bulls it looks like there's no touching the Pistons in the Conference Finals.

LeBron and the Cav's kept the crowd quiet, played their game and seemed to be pulling down more boards, however the Detroit Pistons still pulled away with the win, thanks to CB pulling through when he needed to.

Game 1 Detroit

If Detroit can play that poorly and still eek out a win, well then I think it's safe to say this series in the bag.
