If you live here for even a short length of time, the sea of Tigers jerseys and Red Wing uniforms becomes pretty apparent not just outside of the ballparks but in bars, at movie theaters, grocery stores and everywhere else across the region. We even wear our Detroit Lions gear with pride, even though they haven’t had a championship since 1957 and have never appeared in a Super Bowl. And the Pistons? We still have memories of their glory days.
As USA Today puts it..
With its plethora of pro teams, and a dazzling IndyCar race at Belle Isle, Motor City offers sports teams a year-round calendar of reasons to visit the city.
Also on the top ten list another Michigan city. It’s the home of the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. For the complete list, go here.
We’re glad the D made the list, but Detroit is a city of stories. We’d like to hear your favorite sports memory in Detroit! Leave them in the comments and we’ll pick out some for a future post.
