About this Site

UR Michigan Sports originally came about from the fun of getting together as Michigan Sports Fans, watching games and talking about all of the times and memories that we shared. Thatís the passion of sports: you can talk about it for hours and love to do it with anybody who loves sports as much Ö especially if they love UR team. I became fascinated by this passion and memory in sportsí fans and decided to write a book about funny, emotional, relatable and memorable moments in Michigan Sports History.

ďLet's remember things like they really were - through the eyes and hearts of the fans.Ē
Ė UR Sports Culture

And Detroit is a great place to love your sports because itís typically no nonsense. Itís blue-collar and itís honest. There are so many great things to write about: UR players, UR come-backs, tUR blow-outs, UR favorite bars, UR food, UR tailgates, UR parties. I realized every MI sports fan would have something great to contribute: where you were when the Wings pounded Patrick Roy, pictures of some crazy costume they wore to some game, a story about being a life-long Lions fan though they never lived in MI. Only all of those stories would make for the ultimate fan book!

Now, with the help of the Internet, we can all help build a great web site and produce a great book; while getting involved with the entertainment and art of sports writing. It is a release, itís therapeutic and itís exciting. This is an online community preserving the important memories shared amongst state specific sports fans. This site and resulting book will be created by the people and for the people. Itís a history, as documented by the fans - that's the most important thing!

What We Are Looking For:

UR Editors will be asking questions and highlighting submissions to get everything about UR sports: what you love about you teams / hate about your teams, everything that makes people get together excited and laughing. Weíre not trying to reinvent the wheel with the typical sports book. The Detroit Free Press and others have done that very nicely. We want something different, something from the people. The only highlight we will host will be a highlight through the fans eyes!!!

Thank you, sincerely, for taking an interest We hope you leave UR mark on Michigan Sports history.

All the best,
