"But it's one game.  Why are people so hung up on one game?"


Remember 6 months ago when we barely made the playoffs?  Every game matters.

2 points in October count as much as 2 points in April.

What's with all these games against Boston right away?

We have two pre-season games: Sept 27 and Oct 4.

Then we turn right around and start the season against

them Oct. 9 and then AGAIN on Oct. 15.


The same nonsense happened last year with pre-season

games against Boston on Sept 19 and 21.  Then Oct 5 and 14.

Great pic.  Jealous.  You'll have a great view of the construction and then an incredible spot once everything is up and running.  If I didn't have kids, I'd be right there with you.


I've noticed it's the people in the suburbs who are usually pessimistic about downtown. I've been living here the past two years and it has been a blast. No one here is "waiting for a revival." It's already pretty awesome. I have no doubt these plans will make it better.


Here is the view from my apartment and you can see the lots along Woodward where the stadium will stand. You can see the FOX theater sign for a point of reference. I'll post more pictures once they start construction.

This is great news because of every other city in the US has clearly demonstrated that new sports stadiums are THE key to revitalizing a downtown area. Casinos too. Detroit. Man, what innovators in urban renewal!!!! 


I look forward to seeing your nonexistent proposals.  Also, I await your link to the article where it was stated this arena is seen as THE key to revitalizing a downtown area.  If anything the excitement comes from moving the Wings right next to the Tigers and Lions, taking care of several blocks of nothingness...  and it clearly can't hurt to put something new and significant on Woodward, in the very area where things have been growing.  Not to mention, Joe Louis Arena does need to go.

Beat Buffalo in regulation and collect two points across our last three and we should be ok. I think?


Easier said than done.  We barely beat them in our own building, now we'll be in theirs.  

Granted, their crowd probably doesn't care all that much at this point.

They just want this season put out of its misery.
