The Mighty Mitten
We are blessed in the state of Michigan to have a rich sports tradition in just about every sport. We have a rich football tradition with the University of Michigan and Michigan State University, several great basketball teams, Detroit is considered “Hockey town”, and the Tigers are one of the best baseball teams in the game currently. I was recently just thinking about different states and their sports traditions and I really didn’t realize how great of a sports state Michigan is. I am a straight Michigan sports fan and have just come to realize how great that is. As a U of M fan I am blessed to cheer for such a great football team along with other sports. The Detroit Red Wings are known worldwide for their hockey traditions and are one of the most famous organizations in all sports. The Tigers just went to the World Series and have a good future in store. And finally we have U of M and MSU ranked nationally in basketball and even though the Pistons are struggling they had a good run the last 10 years. So these days we know that the state of Michigan has been going through some rough times but it’s good to know that there will always been a rich tradition in sports.
