Jamie stops by Wojo’s house to whip up a batch of his famous recipe for Super Bowl Chili. Wojo provides commentary and weighs in on the quality of Jamie’s chili.
Kid Rock, Tim Allen and Eminem might get more attention when they support Michigan teams.
Speculating on the next Red Wings head coach is a little like speculating on the next Democratic nominee for president.
What better time could there be to go game-by-game and see how the Lions are going to do in 2015?
About a year ago, I undertook one of the most foolish endeavors that I’ve ever undertaken in this space.
Jamie and Wojo have consulted with Lions fans and concocted a formula to determine whether or not this season will be another labled “Same Old Lions.”
If you need to EXPLAIN to your fans what the uniforms mean, perhaps you’ve taken a little too big of a leap.
Brad Ausmus will not be the AL Manager of the Year.
Mike informed us that his call was fueled be ‘6 to 10’ beers consumed during a day of yard work in his barn. (They have barns in Rochester Hills?)

Is it possible that the ultimate landing spot for the most controversial player in the NFL could be Detroit?
The Winter Classic will be played in Michigan Stadium on January 1st.
Jim Leyland had a good run as Tigers manager.
They’ll put odds on anything from The Oscars to “Survivor” to the Super Bowl coin toss to who will be the next Tigers manager.
We won’t be able to properly put Sunday’s Game 2 debacle into context until we find out what happens in the rest of the ALCS.
For most of the season, Tiger fans worried about Justin Verlander.
It’s a bad sign for the Tigers that the most explosive part of the ALDS so far happened as a result of a foul ball.
For the past few weeks, we’ve heard far too much about what the Tigers don’t have and not enough about what they do.
