1) I was born in Highland Park, MI. It's in the middle of Detroit.
2) I was left alone at home by my parents at the age of nine. I turned on the television and began turning the channel selector (no remote). I settled on a football game that looked like it was pretty intense. The date was November 22, 1969. U-M 24 - OSU 12. I was hooked.
3) I grew up in various cities in the Downriver area. That's between Detroit and Monroe along I-75.
