I did not make this headline up
According to Freep and Detroit News sources, Illitch Holdings met with the DDA this afternoon and a tentative deal has been reached for an 18,000 seat multi-purpose event center. The arena would be located kitty corner from Comerica Park.
It's still very early in the project, so no word yet on the future of JLA. Illitch Holdings hopes to get the deal finialized by the end of the year.
Miguel Cabrera is officially in the lineup for tonight's game against KC:
Looks like the start time is 8:10:
Hopeful signs: Cabrera is at .331, Trout seven points back. Hamilton needs two homers to tie Cabrera. Both players will have wrapped up their games before the Tigers commence play, so we will know where we stand.
Do your commenting, hopefully celebrating, here. Updates, shifting percentages and tallies all appreciated, since I will be wrapped up with an eight-year-old who likes to go to bed at midnight, only looking in from time to time.
Started this thread to find a link to the game, thought I would remake it as an open thread in case anyone has observations, though the game is 2/3 over. Tied at four, middle of the seventh inning, watch here:
If anyone knows where a radio feed can be found, would love to know for future reference.
Red Wings announced the re-signing of RFA Darren Helm... Reports are that it is a 4 year deal, ranging from 8.0 mil to 8.5mil total.
Personally I like this signing, especially if the 2mil per season is the actual number.
This has kind of been a long time coming for me, but I just accepted an offer to come work for an advertising agency in Dearborn, and I will be moving to Detroit from Cleveland. I'm from Michigan originally, but have never lived in southeast Michigan. I was wondering if anyone who lives in the area could give advice on where to live, any nice apartments, etc.
I've been strongly considering moving downtown. I've looked at a couple apartments that look pretty cool, and it might be fun to have a downtown lifestyle. However, I don't want to get stabbed.
I've also considered Ann Arbor, but I'm not sure how much I would enjoy the commute from AA to Dearborn everyday on 94.
Anyways, thanks in advance for any tips or advice you can give. They are greatly appreciated.
