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...

They on.   Outright. #GoBlue pic.twitter.com/jYD3T3TKMy — Michigan Basketball (@umichbball) March 5, 2014 Last year's NCAA runner up won the Big 10 regular season championship outright with a 84-53 victory over Illinois. They were 16 of 23 from three-point range! That's more threes than the Pistons have made in their last three games combined.

Ian Kinsler hilariously wishes old team loses their ass

Ian Kinsler may be juuuust a little bit bitter about how things unraveled in Texas before ultimately getting traded to the Tigers for Prince Fielder. In an interview with ESPN The Magazine he jokingly said he hopes the Rangers turn into the 2008 Detroit Lions:    “I hope they go 0-162,” Kinsler told ESPN The Magazine’s Robert Sanchez last month, in a story published...

Red Wings trade for magic leg

The Red Wings are the walking wounded. Going into the trade deadline needing defensive help Nicklas Lidstrom to come out of retirement, Kenny Holland instead found himself needing to buy a bandaid.  Detroit native David Legwand is that temporary relief. The finger in the ****.  Holland traded Patrick Eaves, prospy Calle Jarnkrok, and a 3rd round draft pick for the 33-year...

Tigers need to get on Mud Hens level

The Toledo Mud Hens got creative in trying to melt all the snow at Fifth Third Field by taking their tarp and turning it into a tarp dome:  Jake and his grounds crew have created a temporary 'hot zone dome' by using the rain tarp, putting snow around the edges and then using heaters to pump heat underneath the tarp. The heaters are pumping an estimated one million BTU...

Nicklas Lidstrom jersey retirement ceremony

if you missed it, Nicklas Lidstrom, one of the best defensive players of all-time, had his jersey number 5 retired on Thursday, March 6. Lidstrom's list of accomplishments is long and distinguished —  [insert Top Gun quote here].

Sammy Watkins clearly wants to be a Detroit Lion

Four days ago standout wideout from Clemson posted the following image on his instagram page: Bad ass pic. He must be a huge Calvin Johnson fan and fancy himself a Transformers nickname, right?  No, he wants to be a Lion! Today he posted a pic of what a Lions jersey would look like with his name on the back. You don't do this, and then post it publicly, if you don'...

Lions sign Golden Tate

The Lions struck Golden Tate on the second day of NFL free agency, signing the soon-to-be 26-year-old, fifth-year wide receiver to a five-year, $31.5 ($13.25 guaranteed) deal. Tate was widely considered the third-best wide receiver available in free agency, behind Hakeem Nicks and Eric Decker… (So maybe his name should be Bronze Tate, amirite??) Seriously, Tate is a fine signing...

Chris Webber in Burger King ad

Chris Webber popped up in a Burger King ad during today's Big Ten semifinals games.  How brave of Webber to do a commercial around March Madness time, a time when he's infamous for calling a timeout he did not have. Also of note is that he's wearing a maize-and-blue jersey (Michigan). Webber's 10-year ban from Michigan was lifted last May, but he still allegedly...
