Growing up in Michigan, I've been accustomed to a bit of disappointment with my sports teams. Thankfully though, in the past 10 years, it has been exactly the opposite for the Red Wings and Pistons, even the Tigers have had a bit of success in the past few years. Even though the Lions haven't had the best run since I've been around, I'm still a Lions fan until the day I die. But enough about that, I grew up in Southeast Michigan. I've played competitive roller hockey since the age of 10. I've been lucky enough to have that take me all over North America in places like California, Florida, Illinois, Ohio, Toronto, Mississauga, Pittsburgh, and others too. I'm very competitive and play just about any sport you can think of for fun. I'm a die hard Red Wings fan. They come first in my book. I also follow the Pistons and Tigers. Sadly, I'll confess I still root for the Lions every week.
"No room for racism"
Don't sweat it. There's very little that will rile me up like a direct criticism of the team--and players--into which I've poured my heart and soul. I like to see that fire in other fans. It shows we're here for the right reasons.
I know common knowledge dictates the salary cap and CBA structure doesn't favor the dynasties of yore, but can you think of two better teams to break the mold?
Training camp can't start soon enough!
Kudos to the staunch defense you provided for Lidstrom. Like I told Keith, I have nothing but respect for him, and I strongly believe he did nothing wrong--just like I believe the same of Crosby.
You guys have staying power, and no one needs to tell you twice.
I'm sure we'll see you next season,
thanks for the comment on the article!
The second round of the "You Vote" series has been published. I was just wondering if you could vote.
Thanks for the compliments about the site Andrew—none of it would be possible without the contributions of experts like yourself.
Keep the great stuff coming!
I'm gonna get this first Wings roundtable article going. The topic for the first one is just going to be, summarize the first month of the Wings season. Pretty easy
email your segment to me at firstname.lastname@example.org, try to get it done by this weekend if possible and I'll get it posted.
I was thinking we have a pretty big Wings community on B/R and we should get a weekly roundtable article going here.
Each week, the top 5 Wings writers could contribute their segment and the person posting the article will rotate among the top 5 writers. Each week there will be a different topic decided on by whoever's turn it is. I could lead first. Anyway, let me know if you're interested
It's time for the playoffs and I've written about it! Hope you get a chance to check it out and GO BLUE!!
