Topics I've Started

Mitch Albom

09 May 2008 - 03:23 PM

So I just got done substitute teaching today, and I got home and opened up the free press. On the front page, Mitch is attempting to write up the game and give us his slant on the game. Nothing but high marks for the Wings, but then he starts a criticism of the Detroit Fan Base. Here's the article: Mitch Albom

This article bugs me for a couple of reasons. One- it seems kind of lazy. He wrote a paragraph on the game, and then multiple about empty seats. It feels like he didn't want to analyze the game too much. Two- Who is he to tell Detroiters to spend their money? Seeing as how he's worth at least 6 Million, I don't think he really understands what most people are going through right now. Gas is almost $4 a gallon, people are losing their jobs, they can't find new jobs, losing their homes and Mitch chastizes Detroiters who can't shell out the $75 for one standing room ticket. I am a die hard, but what am I going to do, go to the game or buy groceries? Go to the game or pay my bills? I took offense to the article, I think Mitch has really lost touch with the struggles of Detroiters. Get off the pedestal and write up the game Mr. Albom.
