    Hockey! HOCKEY!

    I dig the Red Wings (especially their AHL affiliate, the Grand Rapids Griffins) and the New York Rangers. I've got a man-crush on Mitch Callahan, who's in Edmonton I believe. I'm glad to see Petr Mrazek in Philadelphia; seems to be a better fit for him.

    I truly, honestly believe that the Detroit Lions are a playoff-caliber team, but there's some negative juju or karma that just keeps smacking the life out of their organization. Every. Single. Game. Every single game has some sort of magic to it, that mysteriously makes the Lions lose.

    Baseball? Braves. The Tigers had a good thing going, then let it all slip. Then *boom* Verlander won the World Series with Houston.

    Don't follow basketball; never really have. And, NASCAR has left me behind over the past 10-15 years.

    I don't really follow college sports, honestly. I find it bizarre to go all-in on a school you never attended.

    That being said, my NMU Wildcats are playing the MTU Huskies this week for the WCHA Championship! BOOYAH!

    I feel you but Oklahoma college sports was all we had until the Thunder came to OKC. College football is like a religion here.

    Barry is the goat! I still see him running around Norman. Imagine how good that 85 championship team would of been if Marcus Dupree stayed. You have Holloway undecenter running the wishbone with Dupree and Patrick Tillman on the backfield, Keith Jackson catching bombs. They would of probably of beaten ThugU(miami) that season and added another championship

    I completely understand. I'm a hockey nut, and during my time in college, I spent more than a few games cheering against both Michigan and Michigan State...before they splintered off into Big 10 hockey.

    Having said that, I've gotten drunk in Tom Izzo's old dorm room...
