This is the most exciting news I've heard in weeks.

Granted, I've pretty much signed off on politics for the playoff season. It's just too depressing contemplating our pathetic pool of Republican candidates out there. (Did anyone hear John McCain saying last week that he can't wait to bring back his Kennedy amnesty bill if he's elected prez? Between that and his global warming concerns, I'm surprised more Democrats aren't falling in line with their favorite little maverick! If only he'd talk about more tax cuts he wouldn't vote for...)

But I digress. I've long said that hockey's popularity in the U.S. would double if espn had someone like Don Cherry and now they will!!! Don Cherry himself- on espn news, Sportscenter, etc. While he's not a Wings fan (he's understandably partial to Canadian players and we're so Euro), he's still the man. Can't wait to see the new wardrobe he'll break out for his espn debut this Friday...

May in the D

Is getting off to a good start - as you'd know if you watched Sportscenter recently. They couldn't ignore the D after last night's dominance.

The Wings swept the Avs with an 8-2 win. (that's our hockey team, not our baseball team) Johan Franzen ("The Mule") had another hat trick, breaking an old Gordie Howe team record for most points in a playoff series, and setting an NHL record for most goals in a four-game series. He took all of the attention away from Datsyuk's playmaker (3 assists in one game). As Mickey Redmond would say, the Wings "had their way with them" last night. The Wings will do that sometimes; they're that good. Bring on Dallas!!!

The Pistons also finished their series in commanding fashion, beating the 'Sixers by over 20 points. Can everyone say Deeeeeeeeeetroit Baaaaaaasketbaaaaalllllll!!!

And the Tigers swept their 3-game series at Yankee Stadium for the first time since 1966! (Who's your Tiger?)

Yep; it's a good time to be a Detroit sports fan.
