In "A Fist Full of Yen" (The Enter the Dragon parody) Dr. Klan beheads a prisioner, and has him to be tortured. The next prisioner is then ordered to be sent to...DETROIT! And he is dragged off screaming.

Also, in "Airplane" there's the scene where Ted Striker quips "It was a rough place - the seediest dive on the wharf. Populated with every reject and cutthroat from Bombay to Calcutta. It's worse than Detroit." I thought it was rather humorous.

I won't deny that it stings a little to have people say such negative things about Detroit. It's a city struggling to regain the prestigious image it once had in the 40's and 50's. I can take solace in the fact that, unless the offending person lives in Detroit, which none of them do, they don't have a clue what it's really like. (No, you don't.)

But every city that wins sports titles has its shitty points (L.A., Miami, Chicago, etc.). Actually, it seems the cities that have better reputations are the cities that haven't won crap in years(Indianapolis, Seattle, Salt Lake City etc.).

If the Pistons win, I can live secure in the knowledge that 28 other cities house NBA teams that will be Detroit's bitches for a year.

Dammit, everybody knows that Detroit does not burn when they win a championship. (Well, those who were alive the last time they did.)

It burns either the day before or after Halloween. :-)

See, once again, ignorant people making ignorant statements. Devil's Night (the night before Halloween) used to be a dangerous night in Detroit in that many fires would be started. However, with the volunteer patrols that roam the streets during that night, there are LESS fires than any other night in metro Detroit. As for the day after Halloween, I have no idea what you're talking about.

However, you are correct that Detroit does not burn anymore when they win a championship (two NBA titles and three NHL titles), and - SURPRISE - I was alive in 1989 and 1990. I believe the Bucks were cellar-dwellers then as they are now. Funny how things don't change. I'm sure the Packers fans were behaved after winning the Super Bowl, but those stupid foam heads along with all of the ranch dressing shots and sausages they crammed down their throats probably slowed them down enough to prevent them from being threats to each other anyway. (See how the stereotypes work both ways there?)


EDIT: Oh wait.... :-)

Detriot should riot about jokes about them rioting! That will show Jimmy! LA does suck though, but people get WAY to sensitive about stupid crap. OH MY GOD! He make a joke at Detriot's expense! HE MUST DIE! Get a life, Detriot.

Well, a couple of days later and no incidents to talk about. There are a gazillion well-behaved, joyous, Piston-crazed fans lining Jefferson Ave. right now to prepare for the victory parade.

Hopefully this will help improve the national media's image of Detroit. Congrats to my fellow Detroiters for celebrating the right way!!

I haven't seen a city getting there panties in a bunch since Conan's insulting puppet dog went to Quebec. Quebec and Detroit, there's two cities you don't think will ever be mentioned in the same breath... I'm not a fan of Jimmy Kimmel but jeeesh everyone is way to sensitive. Doesn't most cities have stereotypes (some worse then others). The Simpsons is visiting ______ is exactly that.

Details of the Champs' parade. Got to go down at lunch and catch the speeches at Hart Plaza, not to mention watching the parade from my office. Doesn't get any better than this. People going NUTS. Rip almost got dragged off his Vette and paraded through the city streets. Man, I have never seen a team identify more with its fanbase than this one.

We've got a whole summer to enjoy this. WORLD CHAMPS BABY!!
