I'VE HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF YOU SONNY
What are everybody's thoughts on the current debacle that is the Detroit Pistons? In a way this team reminds me of the 2001 Pistons (veterans on the team that can possibly be replaced by younger players).
The only difference (and reason why I feel they won't make a run) is that it's a completely different Eastern Conference. Back in the early 2000s, the only legitimate threat in the East were the NJ Nets. Indiana occassionally reared its head. Both teams were relatively vulnerable.
We will see after this off-season but if the big 3 (Lebron, Wade, Bosh) get added to legitimate rosters in the East, it'll be tough to get past them.
Orlando has already established themselves as the guardians of the Eastern Conference for the next couple of years.
So announced a few minutes ago on ESPN Tigers-Yankees game, Eminem and Jay Z will be doing two shows, one in Detroit @CoPa Sept 2nd and one in NYC @Yankee Stadium Sept 13th. Eminem will headline Detroit and Jay Z headline NYC.
Should easily sell out as Jay Z and Eminem are easily the two biggest acts in Hip Hop. I might have to look into getting tickets as long as they dont get too crazy with the ticket prices!
My brother who lives in Charleston, SC and is a huge Michigan fan texted me this article from the Charleston City Paper the other day.
The "Lowcountry," which Charlestonians refer to their area as, wants the Buckeyes to go back to Ohio.
I found this article very entertaining and thought I would share it with you all. I enjoyed the buckeye comments at the end of the article as well.
I posted this once before, but just incase you didn't see it or vote, I'm gonna post it again.
I go to Bedford High School in Temperance, MI. Currently we're trying to build a new weight room and convert the old one into a wrestling room. Currently we don't have a wrestling room, and the wrestlers are forced to practice in a locker room. Plus our district has a multi-millon dollar debt and this project will cost $350,000. Just wondering if anyone here would like to vote for our school to get $250,000 from Pepsi. Please, your votes are much appreciated! We were in 13th place yesterday at midnight, now we're in 11th!
edit: 10th place since I posted this thread!
YOU CAN VOTE ONCE A DAY! Please vote as much as possible.!Use all your email accounts, plus you can vote once by connecting with facebook. Thank you to all!
I am not a big celeb follower so I don't know if he does this often, but apparently Leonardo DiCaprio was wearing the block M cap at the iron man opening. http://www.showbizspy.com/wp-content/gallery/leodic/ctr-000031.jpg
Don't ask me how I came upon this, it was a yahoo link.
Love to see random people in Michigan, Lions, Tigers, etc. hats
