Re: 2019 Detroit Lions

I was hoping Martha would bring a fresh perspective , emphasis on " hope". I was assuming after WC died that son Bill would take charge with new ideas. I still don't know what happened there. Loyalty was a downfall of William Clay. Russ Thomas was a train wreck of a General Manager but kept the job ...

Re: 2019 Detroit Lions

I am not defending yesterday in any way but they were missing 6 starter's scratched by injury. That is a lot by NFL standards. When you are not very good anyway you can be sure backup players don't make you better.

Re: Even a longtime QLine rider says the service is TERRIBLE and GETTING PROGRESSIVELY WORSE!!!

Mugged in broad daylight on the day before Memorial day among hundreds if not thousands of folks in the streets was highly unlikely.

I suppose the Saturday night on the People Mover may have been slightly more likely but that was a different event.

Re: Even a longtime QLine rider says the service is TERRIBLE and GETTING PROGRESSIVELY WORSE!!!

Comedy. Why not just drive? It was an experiment. I was curious how it would go. Plus my wife was already there from the night before and we didn't need two cars there. I enjoyed the experience and don't regret it. The most fascinating part was sitting at that DDOT bus stop on Mack@Woodward for alm...

Re: Garage Door Opener Antenna

To be clear the door opens and closes fine with the button attached to the garage wall. The remotes worked fine when I held them 2" from the little 12" dangling antenna wire. They just didn't work from the car. I certainly changed out the 9 volt batteries in the remotes and there was no corrosion th...

Garage Door Opener Antenna

Background: 17 year old garage door. opener. Didn't use with remote for 8-9 years Started using again last year. --------------- I googled around and tried extending my antenna. I first used bare copper wire and ran it through a hole I drilled in the gable end to hang outside. Sort of worked but not...

Re: Even a longtime QLine rider says the service is TERRIBLE and GETTING PROGRESSIVELY WORSE!!!

a year and a half ago on the Sunday before Memorial day I made my mass transit rip from my house in Ann Arbor to a daughter in law in Grosse Pointe Farms. 1. AAATA bus...ran on time clean and the AC worked. Maybe only 6-10 riders max during the ride. On and off at various stops. 2. Greyhound got in ...

Re: 2019 Detroit Lions

I don't think the Fords like losing but I don't think they know how to fix it. By the same token I'd be shocked if the aren't making decent money on the team. So as a business its turning a profit. Sure not as big a profit as if they were winners perhaps but they aren't losing money.

Re: 2019 Detroit Lions

Not sure an empty Ford Field would be a good thing for the city. The problem with football stadiums is they are not as good at multifunction as basketball arenas. Concerts play better in the smaller size. You can only have so many monster truck shows and tractor pulls.

Re: 2019 Detroit Lions

Before the season started Vegas had the over/under on wins at 7. I think the under is looking good right now.

Re: To anyone who liked the Blake Griffin trade...

I grew up loving basketball...watching and playing. My earliest memories were the Wilt vs Bill days. Names like Oscar Robertson, Jerry Lucas, Elgin Baylor. I played as a kid,in high school and adult rec for several years. Somewhere along the line I lost interest in all but the local teams, pro and c...

Re: MSU-UM a Noon EST kickoff.

The score wasn't my point. WE had nothing really to gain from the win other than a W against a weak team. But I've followed Michigan since before you were born (unless your 50 years old) and the chances of MSU pulling an upset were far from zero. What we stood to lose was hard to even measure. So ya...

Re: MSU-UM a Noon EST kickoff.

A nice win for my Wolverine's but given where the programs are this year all it was was a "dodge a bullet" win. The downside of losing was much much bigger than the upside of winning in my opinion. Other than the rivalry we beat a mediocre team in a tailspin.

Re: MSU-UM a Noon EST kickoff.

As a long time Michigan fan (1969) I never feel comfortable with this game. No matter how "lopsided" it might look on paper MSU always comes ready to play. Michigan doesn't seem to come ready to play every time.
