Cold Stone wants to crash Matthew Stafford’s wedding

Matthew Stafford and long-time girlfriend, and friend of D4L, Kelly Hall are getting married. The engagement was subtly announced earlier in the week with a pic of the two eating Cold Stone ice cream. Cold Stone had to love all the free pub, so they’ve apparently made an offer Hall may not be able to refuse for the wedding: TMZ Sports spoke with Cold Stone head honcho Michael...

Lions bring back Dan Orlovsky to back up Matthew Stafford

The Lions agreed to a one-year deal with Dan Orlovsky on Wednesday, bringing back the only quarterback in NFL history to unknowingly run out of his own end zone and spackle my brother’s basement. Orlovsky started seven games for the 0-16 Lions, including the game when he rolled out of his own end zone in a 12-10 loss to the Vikings. The FOX announcers that day called Orlovsky...

Max Scherzer’s first start in 2014

Max Scherzer did something in his first start that he did not do in his entire Cy Young season. Think he’s pitching for those extra two years on his future contract? Max Scherzer never threw 8 scoreless innings in his Cy Young season. Nice 1st start to '14 (after a rocky 1st inning) (H/T @aarongleeman) — Detroit4lyfe (@Detroit4lyfe) April 3, 2014 Scherzer’s rocky start...

Ian Kinsler didn’t listen to his friend Billy Zane

Billy Zane’s a cool dude; he tried to help Ian Kinsler out. Kinsler didn’t listen and walked it off. Yep, it’s a walk off. It was Ian Kinsler’s third career walk-off hit and his first since 2012. He was 3-for-5 in the game with a solo jobber.

Detroit’s Shinola has the best watches

I remember reading about Shinola on friend Mike Payne’s The Coolist about a year ago and subsequently thinking about how the brand was going to blow up. Sure enough, it has. The brand is everywhere now, from GQ to the malls in Georgia, and it continues to evolve. On Opening Day for Major League Baseball, minutes before first pitch, Shinola tweeted a slick leather watch made out...

Matthew Stafford, Kelly Hall engaged to be married

Matthew Stafford once said that he wanted a Super Bowl ring before a wedding ring, and his girlfriend seemed cool with that, but we can’t fault Stafford, 26, for giving in and deciding to put a ring on Kelly Hall’s finger before his own. Kelly Hall quietly announced the engagement via social media on Monday by posting a pic of the two eating Cold Stone ice cream with the caption...

Rod Allen Drinking Game 2014

The Rod Allen Drinking Game was originally created by Big Al at the now-defunct Wayne Fontes Experience and has since been updated over the years by D4L (and one year at Walk Off Woodward).  It has officially become cemented as a drunken-staple in the Detroit sports community.  And it’s not just a brainless, alcoholic’s activity, either — there are things you can learn...
