Another Blow For Detroit

Detroit has become the symbol for the current economic crisis we are all going through. It's a shame since the city has also been at the forefront of the sports world over the past few years. They've hosted the Super Bowl, World Series, Final Four, NBA Finals and Stanley Cup Finals.

That doesn't mean there hasn't been some sporting heartbreak going on in Motown.

-The Detroit Red Wings just lost Game 7 ... at home ... of the Stanley Cup Finals to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

-Earlier today, Detroit-based GM announced that it is pulling some of its funding to the various NASCAR series.

-In April, Michigan State ended an inspirational run in the NCAA Tournament by getting creamed by North Carolina in the title game (which was in Detroit).

-The Detroit Lions became the first team in NFL history to go 0-16.

-The Michigan Wolverines football team is coming off a 3-9 record, the most losses in program history and their first losing season since 1967.

Michigan is a large state and team are dictated to by our boarders. So yes it is sad to come in second by a score of 2-1 in the seventh game. But many would envy such a finish. When M.S.U. got beat in a championship game no one expected them to even show, how much of a disgrace is that. It took the Boston Red Soxs about 90 years to win the World Series. Really!!!!
