A column by Trevor Keiser
October 12, 2011 - This is a good time to be a Detroit sports fan.
Though they're currently down two games to Texas it's still exciting to see the Tigers in the post season.
I would love to see the Tigers beat the Rangers and face off against the St. Louis Cardinals for the World Series.
The Lions won four games in a row, two of which were amazing second half comebacks.
Lions fan have been starving for a long time to have something to cheer about.
The last time they played Monday Night Football was 2001. They beat the Bears 24-13, making this their first 5-0 season in 55 years.
It would be nice if the Lions could make it to the playoffs and finally get rid of all the ill-feelings of the "Matt Millen era" with the 0-16 season.
If you're a college football fan then you also have something to cheer about as Michigan goes head to head with Michigan State in East Lansing on Saturday at noon.
Michigan currently has a 6-0 record and Michigan State is 4-1. LET'S GO BLUE!
If you're a hockey fan, the NHL season just started and your Detroit Red Wings won their first two games . There is plenty of hockey season to be played.
I know for me hockey doesn't really "start" until baseball and football seasons are over and by over I mean our local Detroit and University of Michigan football seasons are done.
As far as the Detroit Pistons go, they're currently in a lockout and I don't know if players, coaches, and the NBA will settle negotiations in time to have a season.
In other "news," my wife Noell and I recently celebrated our first month of marriage.
It has been a good first month, there has been a little adjusting of living with one another, as there is with every newlyweds, but we've had a good time.
I can say I love her more today than when I married her 37 days ago and that's something to smile about.
