  1. The TV station logos in Mid-Michigan (Bay City, Saginaw, Midland, Flint): WNEM TV 5, the CBS affiliate WJRT 12, the ABC affiliate WEYI 25, the NBC affiliate WSMH 66, the FOX affiliate WDCQ 19, the PBS channel out of Delta College in Saginaw
  2. Flint's attempt at a theme park back in the 1980s. Autoworld opened on July 4, 1984, then closed six months later due to poor attendance. It was closed for good in 1994, then demolished in 1997.
  3. MLB: Texas Rangers at Detroit Tigers, 1990 NFL: Never NBA: Never NHL: Chicago Blackhawks at Detroit Red Wings, 2009 Midwest League: Great Lakes Loons, 2007 (can't remember who they played, but Clayton Kershaw was on the mound that night) NCAA Football: Wyoming at Central Michigan, 2000 NCAA Basketball: Toledo at Central Michigan, 2000 NCAA Baseball: Kent State at Central Michigan, 2001 NCAA Hockey: Michigan State vs. Michigan at Joe Louis Arena, 1998 IHL: Flint Spirits at Saginaw Hawks, 1988 AHL: Hamilton Bulldogs at Grand Rapids Griffins, 2012 ECHL: Gwinnett Gladiators at Kalamazoo Wings, 2011 CHL: Colorado Eagles at Fort Wayne Komets, 2011 Colonial/United/"I"HL: Brantford Smoke at Flint Bulldogs, 1991 OHL: Guelph Storm at Detroit Jr. Red Wings, 1993 (might have gone to the OHL exhibition game in Saginaw a few years earlier, not sure....) NAHL: Saginaw Gears, 1993 (can't remember who they played) FHL: Danville Dashers at Port Huron Prowlers, 2015
  4. Nice concept! The claw marks on the numbers remind me of the numbers on the old Port Huron Border Cats jerseys:
  5. Indians acquire Andrew Miller for prospects Tribe also trades for Jonathan Lucroy (pending his approval) Wow, Cleveland's been busy on deadline day.
  6. Detroit Lions: Continue to stumble along as an also-ran franchise. Make the playoffs now and then, but no Super Bowls. Detroit Tigers: Remain the top team in the AL Central for several more years, making it to 2 more World Series, winning once. Detroit Red Wings: Franchise continues descent to middle-of-pack team as rebuild/"We like this team, as is.." continues. No Stanley Cups, but the playoff streak continues. Detroit Pistons: Pistons get even worse the first few years as the rebuild continues, but they should be back on track by 2018. CMU Football: Dan Enos fired as coach as program continues to stumble. Port Huron: McMorran Arena is renovated, and Port Huron gets yet another hockey team, this time in the USHL. Arena football comes and goes. Saginaw Spirit: Win their first OHL championship. Pittsburgh Steelers: Two more Super Bowl appearances, winning once. Toronto Maple Leafs: Make it to the Stanley Cup Finals, but lose.
  7. Detroit Red Wings: Gordie Howe Steve Yzerman Terry Sawchuk Nicklas Lidstrom Detroit Lions: Bobby Layne Joe Schmidt Barry Sanders Calvin Johnson Detroit Pistons: Isiah Thomas Dave Bing Bob Lanier Chuck Daly Detroit Tigers: Ty Cobb Hank Greenberg Al Kaline Alan Trammell Toronto Maple Leafs: Ted Kennedy Dave Keon Doug Gilmour Mats Sundin Pittsburgh Steelers: Art Rooney Joe Greene Chuck Noll Jerome Bettis (This was a hard one, so many stars from the 1970s and the 2000s...) Central Michigan Chippewas Football: Roy Kramer Herb Deromedi Dan LeFevour Antonio Brown
  8. Joe Nathan was a "Tiger Killer" during his days in Minnesota. Much to Tigers fans' chagrin, he still is a "Tiger Killer".

  9. Really should have updated this a long time ago. Haven't been to a Komets game in nearly two years!

  10. http://slam.canoe.ca/Slam/Hockey/NHL/Phoenix/2012/07/29/20040851.html Of course he's $20 million short...
  11. Found this on eBay, a 1996-97 Saginaw Lumber Kings home jersey, for $29.99. The Lumber Kings were Saginaw's last pro hockey team before the Spirit arrived. The team moved to Saginaw from Chatham and were the Saginaw Wheels for two seasons (1994-96), the Lumber Kings for two seasons (1996-98) and then the Gears for 1 1/2 years (1998-2000, moved to Ohio in December 1999). The Lumber Kings were pretty awful, but I'm glad I found this jersey.
  12. I've been looking for a Rangers "Lady Liberty" jersey (preferably the blue version) lately. Thought I found one at teamdepot.com, but they were all out.
  13. Four new banners at Wings Stadium this year. Two banners for the Canucks and Devils, a Northern Division Champions banner and an Eastern Conference Champions banner. BTW, it took about half of the first period to unroll the championship banners!
  14. A few minor league rafter banners: 1. McMorran Arena in Port Huron Here are the Silver Stick Tournament Banners that hang up in the east endzone: Here are retired/honored numbers from the original Port Huron Flags: (These were retired by the Border Cats, Beacons, Flags II and Icehawks, but I believe are just honored numbers with the Fighting Falcons. I'd like to see banners for the Flags' 3 Turner Cups, but I'm glad they kept the numbers up.) 2. Wings Stadium in Kalamazoo Championship Banners (2 Turner Cups, 1 Colonial Cup), affiliate banners, and various division/conference title banners in the corner. 3. Allen County War Memorial Coliseum in Fort Wayne Retired Numbers and Turner Cup Banner:
  15. Very nice. Maybe it's the picture (or just me ), but it looks like there are stripes across the front.
  16. $18 for shipping?! I'd expect a jersey to be personally delivered to me by the seller for that price.
  17. I've wanted an Iowa Stars jersey for a couple years, and found one for $49.99 at River City Sports.
  18. I used to have a Mitchell and Ness Colorado Rockies (NHL) jersey, but sold it a couple years ago because it never fit too well. I searched for another M&N Rockies jersey for a couple years until I bought a CCM model a few weeks ago. As for my current "white whales"... 2009-10 Flint Generals jersey Detroit Vipers game-worn 1998-99 Saginaw Gears throwback (from the Lumber Kings "Gears Reunion Night") California Golden Seals jersey
  19. thinking about a road trip to a Fort Wayne Komets game in March.

  20. is not interested in low-level junior hockey in Flint. GO BLUE!

  21. Doug Gilmour as a Chicago Blackhawk: Mike Vernon as a Florida Panther:
