The End Of A Great Season

The TV Guide

Alas … the season ended for my beloved Detroit Red Wings last night when they fell in overtime to the Chicago Blackhawks in the 2013 Stanley Cup playoff finals. I have to admit that I am very bummed that the Wings lost their series against Chicago because had they won, they’d next face the LA Kings for the Western Conference Championship and I would get more opportunities to see them play hockey here in LA. But … it wasn’t meant to be. Even tho my night turned out to be a bummer, I’m happy to share that my day prior turned out to be much better than I expected. My very good friend Josh Z cajoled me out of the house mid-day for lunch (which I never do due to work constraints) and we had a very nice time together. More »

It was a late night for me but it turned out to be hella fun. More »

Tiger Town

The TV Guide

Yesterday was another fun-filled day here in Detroit Rock City … even if the weather started to get a little stank midway thru the day. My friends and I started our day in Royal Oak, MI where we lunched and shopped before making our way downtown to cheer on the Detroit Tigers as they faced off against the Cleveland Indians. While the weather was nice and warm in the day, it got much colder, windier and wetter as evening fell. We kinda froze our buns off at the game but we had a lot fun … even if the Tigers lost a little bit :) More »
