I tell it to everyone I know, one of the best values for your money and if you live out of your home state is satellite radio. I have had Sirius nearly all six years that I have been away from Michigan. For $12 a month, I have been tuned into to every Wings, Pistons and U of M game not broadcast on California TV. And, hanging onto the words of the radio announcer is just old school. It's great in every way really. If it's a Detroit station getting the broadcast, everything feels like home - the announcers, the station identifications and especially the commercials. I never thought I would be so happy to hear Belle Tire or Farmer Jacks being mentioned. When it's the opposing teams broadcast, it can be cool to hear what the rest of the country thinks about the Detroit teams. Having listened to hundreds of games, I can honestly write most opposing announcers are very respectful. Of course, they almost have to when the Wings and the Stones are whipping up on their teams, which we have done so many times in the past 7-8 years. In particular, it's great to hear with pride the national recognition that the Wings and Stones get for team work. Individually, it always felt good to hear the amazement in their voices for Chauncey, Rip, Te-Te, Datsyuk, Zetterberg and plenty of others. They all hated Sheed and when they were really biased, it was like being trapped in hell, but having no where else to get your fix. Helpless.

Of course, there is such a thing as "too much of a good thing." The sat. radio has at times pretty much set me in a panic and spurred a series of horrible events. For instance, last night I was on my way home from work and making the best out of my hour and 10 minute California commute, with both a Pistons and Red Wings game on Sirius. In your car, with no distraction, you are really into it, hanging on the announcers every word. Well, I wish I wasn't because by the half of the Stones game, they were down by 10, Chauncey lit us up for 21 (proving yet again, we should not have traded hime); and Marion Hossa was being taken off the ice on a stretcher!!! I was miserable. I eventually ran my car out of gas and was running across an over pass in my suit to get a can of gas. Sirius can bring the pain, just as easy as it brings the joy.

*Side note: The Pistons came back to beat the Nuggets. The Wings torched the Blues 5 zip and Marian was asking to play the next game - thank the Hockey Gods!
