Michigan Lifestyles: Sports
There is no shortage of sporting events in and around the Detroit area.
The Professional Teams: the
Detroit Pistons basketball,
the Detroit Tigers baseball,
the Detroit Red Wings hockey ,
and the Detroit Lions football offer tons of fun and excitement to the fans.
The semi-professional Junior Red Wings play in the
Ontario (Canada) Hockey League. The Detroit Vipers are hard-hitting competitors in the
International Hockey League. Indoor soccer is played by the Detroit Rockers.
Sports are special at the University of
Michigan and Michigan State University, both just a short ride from the Detroit area. The
U-M Wolverines perennially run at the top of the Big Ten. Ticket sellouts, exceeding
100,000 at every home football game, testify to the love of the maize and blue. The
Michigan State Spartans have their tried and true fans as well, and both schools also draw
big crowds for their basketball schedules.
Finally, the sight of roostertails and the
roar of the hydroplane engines make the annual Power Boat Race on the Detroit River a
place to be seen.
