Detroit Not Getting MLS Team

Cincinatti expected to be the team who gets the second of the four expanion teams.

Consider me disappointed. I really want to see this city get a team, because I know there is a pretty big local following in Metro Detroit for soccer.

What ruined the bid was the Ford Family stepped into the plans and telling MLS they can use Ford Field. Initial plans were to build a new stadium at the old jailsite, which sounded like a real good idea and probably would have made Detroit the leader.

Mates,

About to leave work, lots of long days this week and working tomorrow.  However, all is not lost, as when I get home it'll be time for some adult beverages, a lit BBQ, and then a bonfire on a beautiful night with the family.  Oh yeah, and the livestock.  They'll watch from the pasture. 

Simple questions:  What's in your glass, what's on your grill/menu, and what's on tap for the weekend.

Spring is here, summer can't be far away,

I need some input and haven't been satisfied with the digging I've done online. I am looking to book a 5 day vacation for the Christmas holidays with my gf. I want to go somewhere warm and tropical, and am between Belize, Dominican Republic, Cuba, and Jamaica. 

I think we'd ideally like to stay somewhere with clear beaches at a good resort. If possible, I'd like to stay someplace where there is something to do for a day trip around the resort/town. Of the spots above, has anyone ever been? Anyone know what's the best bargain? I have tried a travel agent but she wasn't really much help. 

I haven't ever visited anywhere in the area, so all tips are appreciated.

Since it's still the offseason, and content/news is scarce, figured this would be okay! 

So I'm a musician in addition to a Michigan fanatic, and released an album of synthwave last year. In case you're not familiar with synthwave, it's a '80s retro music featuring the vintage synthesizer and drum machine sounds of the era. You may recognize it from films like Drive  and Kung Fury, or video games like Far Cry: Blood Dragon. It's a fun style of music that doesn't take itself too seriously. 

If you're interested in giving it a listen, here's the LINK. (It's also on Spotify, Apple Music and so forth.)
