When I was a kid, my mom and I would go shopping at Saks Fifth Avenue and Hudson's Downtown. My Grandfather would take me to Boblo Island every summer. In the winter we all'd go to the Auto Show and dream. In college, we'd make ROAD TRIPs to Lafayette Coney Island and as freshmen we went nuts when the Tigers won the World Series. It's been pretty tough around here of late--and while we've been the butt of too many jokes, jeers, and self-righteous judgment...we stay. And we believe.
In this week's SI, Mitch Albom explains why we love this city and our teams. And why all you haters can shove it.
Bless you Mitch
