Hopefully, LA can inspire the Pistons. We had similar struggles at home until we left for Memphis tonight, avenging their victory over us earlier in the week. Sometimes, you forget to play defense for four quarters – that’s how we won against the Grizzlies. Even without Blake Griffin, if you just clamp down physically on […]

An alarming loss for a team that seemed to be driving straight towards the Eastern Conference playoffs. Greg Monroe and Andre Drummond played great, but the rest of the starters did not. Where was our floor general, Reggie Jackson? Despite leading the worst team in the NBA by double-digits at halftime, Detroit collapsed in the […]
An NCAA Champion at UConn and an NBA Champion with your Detroit Pistons, Richard “Rip” Hamilton has officially retired from the game of basketball. He announced the decision yesterday on ESPN after sitting out last season. He said after giving his body a year to rest, he hurt his foot this past October. He has […]
I told you snarfs do not fuck with us – I hope you snarfs do not fuck with us, whoa! My adapted rap lyrics are tonight’s main point: don’t mess with Detroit. San Jose did just that, flipping Brennan Smith onto his back by taking his skates out from under him. It was a 2-2 […]
It was a back-to-back for the Red Wings, and we couldn’t muster any goals. However, a bright spot from the 1-0 game was Jonas Gustavsson. In his first game back since November 5th, he stopped 26 shots. Don’t forget how much Petr Griffin helped us. Jimmy Howard and Gus, nice to have you healthy. We […]
The Cavaliers came out shooting nothing but three’s, a trend that would continue all night long. That’s all they got. It looked like the NBA All-Star game out there. Detroit stuck with them in the opening quarter, trailing just 30-27. The Palace Prince made his official return: Tayshaun started at small forward. He didn’t waste […]
In the midst of a six-game west coast road trip, the Red Wings haven’t lost in regulation yet. They are halfway through, winning two and losing one in a shootout. The shootout came in Anaheim Monday night. Pavel Datsyuk broke open a scoreless game in the second period with an unassisted goal. He stole the puck […]
My personal favorite movie in the Best Picture Category (and the only one I’ve seen). It won for: Best Original Score Best Production Design Best Costume Design Best Makeup and Hair Wes Anderson’s movies are always beautiful in cinematography and set design. It’s also got some of the best actors in the world:
Snubbed for best animated film!
Tremendous effort by Michigan to come out strong at home. They used a 20-point first half lead to hold on and beat Ohio State, never trailing. It’s been a tough season filled with unfortunate departures in the off-season, then injuries to our two best players. Spike Albrecht deserves an award for keeping his team together with […]
I always loved the Beach Boys as a kid, but I didn’t know they had an album this deep until Oldschool showed it to me. Pet Sounds, you’ve heard. Now listen to this…
You could see how excited Reggie Jackson was on our bench Friday night against Chicago. With two days to think about his first Pistons start, a fresh start with a franchise that will finally let his talents be displayed, Jackson was boiling over Sunday afternoon. Detroit benefited from another home game at the Palace. Tayshaun […]
This ain’t no cell phone commercial – these are the L. A. Clippers! My main men, without Blake Griffin, winning 126-99 over Sacramento. Well done.
