Two years ago, future Hall of Famer Derek Jeter was making his final appearances at MLB stadiums across the nation. Fans far and wide were lining up at the gates of each American League ballpark and a handful of National League stadiums to see the career-long Yankee shortstop play in that particular city one final […]
Can the Detroit Tigers still make the 2016 playoffs? After starting 2015 as the four-time defending American League Central champions, there were few teams in Major League Baseball who ended the season more disappointed than the Detroit Tigers. A blistering start to the campaign saw them go 11-2. the Tigers were tied for first place […]
The Rod Allen Drinking Game was originally created by Big Al at the now-defunct Wayne Fontes Experience and has since been updated over the years by D4L (and one year at Walk Off Woodward). It has officially become cemented as a drunken-staple in the Detroit sports community. And it’s not just a brainless, alcoholic’s activity, either — there are things […]
April Fools! Despite it being the year 2016, a day and age when we can see just about anything, including Justin Verlander’s bare ass, there’s no freakin’ video of Ben Verlander’s first ever plate appearance against his big brother, MLB Cy Young and MVP. So we’re left to imagine what that video would look like […]
Detroit4lyfe heard from its reliable and never wrong anonymous sources weeks ago after Megatron released that statement at the request of the Lions that his mind was already made up and he was for sure, without a doubt retiring and already at peace with the decision, but we decided to sit on it (Manetti), hoping/praying that the Lions […]
Harbaugh looks perfect for the gig – sloppy body guy, but successful. Harbaugh turns everything he touches into gold. The Tigers should consider keeping him on. More video here.
Here are the highlights from the Red Wings’ 5-3 win in the latest Stadium Series game, this one played at the beautiful Coors Field just under the mile high marker in Denver, CO. Those white gloves are the white baseball cleats of hockey. Gorgeous looking. The Red Wings may have lost the alumni game the […]
A Davidson man needs no introduction: The amazing thing is that Curry looked like he suffered
Shanny-han retweeted this, so that’s confirmation enough for me.
1. What a big win for the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday night via — you didn’t guess it — a shootout! It could have been an OT win after the Wings’ elite goaltender made a sick save, skated a little bit and made a sick open-ice pass to the breaking Pavel Datsyuk, but the zebras blew […]
1. Detroit Pistons news lately is kind of hilarious. See the cover of Detroit Bad Boys for instance (if you’re on a desktop or tablet): The Pistons ended their 5-game skid by beating THE BEASTS OF THE EAST! But, in stark contrast to winning a nice game? Stanley Johnson has a sprained shoulder. Anthony Tolliver is […]
1. This is a Detroit sports site, but there’s a certain level of respect owed to a dude not named LeBron James who puts up 59 points on your team. Watching the unibrowed Anthony Davis score at will on the Pistons was like partaking in a guilty pleasure, like if I were to stumble in on […]
Detroit4lyfe has been around for a decade, so we’ve done some things here, including links posts. Here’s a new one: Four major Detroit sports stories/links you should probably check out. In no particular order: 1. With Detroit Tigers Spring Training underway, Justin Verlander turned 33 on Saturday. There are a couple puff pieces you can read about […]
Dear Mitch, In case you haven’t noticed… This blog has been much like the Pontiac Silverdome in recent years, in ruins with the occasional random visitor. Its history is as rich as it is a current cesspool, waiting to be demolished. I’ve thought about it, destroying this blog. As is obvious, I ultimately err, er, decide to […]
