  1. The arena is going to connect midtown and Detroit. Currently midtown has been the growth all before during and after the recession. Most people at the moment are complaining about rent being high, but thats the stoners who think burger king is a carrer job. The white collar and hipster folks are the ones who are enjoying the $1500 one bedroom apartment or $200KCondo/lofts in Midtown.
  2. Try getting something to live in downtown. 98% full capaicity in occupancy rate thanks to all the things you mention help jump start it all. People are on years waiting list at the moment.

    What the heck is the PA guy saying?!

    Pushy advertisements = me not buying the product. Never bought a pair of Nike shoes or even a Nike t-shirt. I have heard nothing but bad reviews of Amway, so I'm gonna stay clear of them. If they offer anything for free at the joe, its going straight in the trash bin at the joe.

    Illitch: Definitely a new arena coming

    Things around downtown/midtown are looking better. Occupancy for rentals (Condo's/apartments) are at 90%-95%. A couple suburban companies have moved downtown over the years. If Chrysler, Ford, The GM Tech Center and Nissan Tech center would move downtown, I think things would pick up in-sense for a new arena getting developed fast with all that tax base money.

    To Red Wings fans in Arizona:

    I would personally rather have Atlanta move. They are not doing so well either and rumors also about them moving to Winnipeg. It would give Detroit a better shot on moving to the East.

    Next year could be big for the NHL

    I wouldn't mind if the NFL decides to do a lockout next season on 2 counts. 1. Could be good for Hockey 2. NFL games always mess up my tv shows by making them late to come on or not airing at all.

    Wings fans at road games

    Well with the latest census information, it shows that michigan was the only state to have lost population. The away crowds are only going to get bigger in the next 10 years when more people move out of Michigan.

    Wings sporting an ad-badged jersey

    A car being given away in "the motor city." I see nothing wrong with that. Stop being xenophobic. I don't even notice the ad's on the glass. I couldn't even tell you one ad that was even put on the there. If they put that small of an ad on the jersey I won't even notice that also

    The City of Detroit

    Hit up Lafayette or American Coney Island <- My favroite. Grab some real Detroit food. A Coney Dog! It's right up Michigan avenue from campus martius park. Oh and if you got ice skates, bring them. The rink at the park is open now. You can also rent skates if you don't have any.
