    It's Detroit Rock City NOT Detroit Sports City

    Back from vacay in San Diego and we had a layover in Detroit over the weekend and they had a list of the "celebrities" that were from the Motor City. There was Aretha Franklin and Madonna, but nowhere on there was any of the sports figures from Detroit. Why? Because they never had anybody worthy of being listed on a list of "celebrities." I'll tell you right now if there was a list of "celebrities" from Boston at Logan it would start with Larry Bird, Ted Williams, Bobby Orr, Bill Russell, Tom Brady...and at the very end it would be Aerosmith and Matt Damon!!!

    Strange entry, as none of the athletes you listed are from Boston - they only played there. Williams and Brady are from California, Russell from Louisiana, Bird from Indiana, and Orr from Ontario. Notable athletes raised in Detroit include Jerome Bettis, Sugar Ray Robinson, Joe Louis, George Gervin, and Hal Newhouser.

    Have you ever heard of Jim Craig and Mike Eruzione motherfucker?

    Thank them for ending the Cold War. All Jerome Bettis did was eat.
