How sick is Mike Ilitch?

Anybody who watched the Tigers celebration on Thursday had to be shocked at how frail Mike Ilitch appeared.

Mike's last appearance was the Winter Classic was coming to Michigan.

Just look at the 2 clips - the change in a few months is dramatic.

I have no clue on how the City of Detroit and Olympia Sports deal with Joe Louis - but the reality is the overhead scoreboard has not been upgraded in years. What you have today is what Boston, St. Louis and Hartford bought in 1995 and it has never been upgraded.

Look at minor league Kalamazoo has.


I guess Chris is really running things now

The Wings need to be close to Windsor Transit - how many STH's are from Ontario? The Wings unlike Buffalo have never said.

JLA needs to be replaced - it is a clone of the Hartford Civic Center.

I wish I had seen a game at Olympia but at least I saw it inside but I had to take a swine flu shot in 1976 to do so. Olympia was very similar to Boston Garden and even shared the same scoreboard.
