I've made it to Detroit, a city that has a sports radio station on the FM dial, WXYT, which beat the heck out of having to listen to Britney Spears on the ride in from the airport. The highlight of the show was a live Fantasy Draft, not a football or hockey draft, but a Cheap Beer draft! Yes, each of the four co-hosts selected his own favorite cheap beer in a three round draft, them the listeners could vote on the best team of beers. Oh so strange, but true. Stroh's was the first beer taken, and much to my surprise, Pabst Blue Ribbon wasn't taken until late in the third round.
I'm just about to head downtown for Game 1, Red Wings vs San Jose. Thanks to the Wings PR folks, I'm hooked up with a ticket and here we go.....it's finally time to drop the puck on this adventure!
