Detroit4lyfe's Sunday Night Inspiration

Posted by Bob Biscigliano in , ,

Unfortunately for some of you, there will be no Sunday Night Anti-Debreastants tonight. With Michigan State making the National Championship game and the official start to the 2009 MLB Season just hours away, there really shouldn't be anything for you to be depressed about. For those of you who just can't get jacked up, then I guess slit your wrists or whatever it is you wackos would normally do to deal with your depression; just don't get any blood on Detroit's parade right now. (Disclaimer: We are not responsible for any suicides that occur as a result of reading this post because we are just kidding and don't really want anyone to slit their wrists. Thanks).

Anyway, since Michigan State is in the National Championship game in Detroit there have been a lot of stories about how great this is for Detroit and how it provides an escape for those in Michigan who are going through a relatively tougher time than the rest of the country. Frankly, we all know that Michigan State isn't going to single handily reverse the fortunes of the city or the state. Sure we joke about it, but for a city of believers and hard workers it does provide inspiration. It instills a sense of hope that makes us think that this has happened for a reason and that just maybe, something like this can help ignite an otherwise fading city. If anything, as I said, it certainly serves as a distraction until the state gets back to working hard to overcome these hardships. As Eminem said in his great tribute to Detroit before yesterday's semi-final game on CBS, "we may be down, but we'll never be out."

I wanted to share the videos that have been shown in the past couple days. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a couple on the internet. I was able to find one that aired on Sportscenter today. It's presented by Michigander, Mike Tirico. I think it really gets the message across nicely:

BallHype: hype it up!
