THE DREAM: Feeling pressure from owner Tom Gores and fans Joe Dumars makes a bold, costly and certainly risky move by trading into the Top 4 to get Kentucky SF Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.

“There has to be accountability, there will be accountability,” said Detroit Lions’ Tom Lewand.
Well today ought to be fun. The Tigers lose again to the hapless Mariners and there are several people who can play fall guy. Perfect. Take it away Terry…

As far as tonight deciding the future of the Wings it’s very simple. Lose and this series is likely over. That would be three straight early playoff exits and full 4-years since hoisting the Cup. In other words, it’s over.
I want blood. I know, I know, “That won’t happen Valenti, Wings don’t and won’t do it” but I don’t care!

Earlier this week Marcus Ray talked to the Detroit News about his hate for Michigan State and he doesn’t respect the program.
“Man screw you Valenti” or “LIES ALL LIES YOU LOVE THIS!!!!!!”
The simple answer is, I used to love it. I used to live and die by it. In many ways this rivalry ran my sporting life.
How does the song go? “I’m sorry…so sorry. That I made your life a mess and I’m being such a pest…I’m sorry.”
