    Wings are looking like they'll miss the playoffs.
    Tigers should finish around 90 victories.

    It's too bad he didn't get a WS win. Can't say he didn't try. It's been an enjoyable run for the fans thanks to his willingness to spend.

    There is no Little Caesars anywhere near me.

    I like the crust of their deep dish.

    I just google'd and there is one an hour away.

    I like Mr. Illitch, but I am not driving an hour for gluten and carbs.

    I hope the Tigers and the Red Wings fare better than the post-Davidson Pistons did.

    I doubt it. I'm sure the children will continue the legacy.

    We have one about 3 miles away and with their five dollar pizza deal, will pick up a couple about once a month. Of course after downing 5 slices, I have to run off those pounds gained over the next two days...:pizza:

    I was talking about Mike Illitch to my parents, and I made the point that once he committed to winning a Stanley Cup, we signed every player we could, regardless of what it cost. Those late 90s early 00s teams were amazing. We had Brett Hull. We had Luc Robitaille, we had Brendan Shanahan, we were stacked in a way not seen since the Gretzky Oilers.

    That was amazing.

    I don't like baseball as much as hockey, but I have no doubt he would have spent his last penny to win a WS title.

    You can't see he didn't try. We have been in the top 4 or 5 for biggest MLB payrolls for nearly every year since 2008.
