Hockey - the Perfect Sport for Detroit.

For me, Hockey is the most amazing sport for a lot of reason; but most importantly because of all those reasons together! It's the combination of conditioning, speed, hand/eye coordination, the brutality, the pride that players must have to compete.

The fluidity of passing in hockey is like a well-oiled machine - so precise! The plays they set on the powerplay back and forth, back and forth, Homstrom knows whose going to take the shot... he pounces at the exact right moment ... GOAL!!!! The sticks raise and you will never see any more genuine, humble smiles on athletes' faces. As a fan, I just warms the heart.

It means so much because we see all the brutality that these players go through! Hockey is like football, but faster on a smaller field and played 4 times a week!!! Think about this - to play hockey you're going to get your teeth knocked out - fact! That courage is all about the love for the game and the players pride! A great example happened in this years' playoffs when Kris Draper took a puck off his face, but still had the desire to shoot the puck into the net ... that's how much he wanted it!!!

Detroit knows all this! They know what it's like to fight through tough times. I was very happy, but not surprised to see that in Detroit, Hockey received better ratings in the '08 playoffs than basketball. It's the most honest sport. Because it self-regulates (by allowing fights), you don't have the talk or the drama - you just have the blood and the guts and the glory. That's blue-collar, that's Detroit, that's Motown, that's the Great State of Michigan!
The Glory.
The Legacy.
The Teamwork.
The Heart.
