Detroit, obviously everybody knows, this year filed for bankruptcy and has a history in the last couple decades, struggling financially and it means that much more to us as players as we see our Ford Field packed. Fans are showing up at home and making it tough for other teams, especially with the climate economically in this city. For them to show support like that and spend their hard earned money on us, it definitely gives us pride and gives us something to play for.

No, THIS is Detroit.

I am getting sick of only seeing ruin port on Reddit about how Detroit is just a decrepit defunct ghost town. So, I decided to add some pictures of the places that I think are some of the most beautiful.

Original Post

Detroit Over Everybody

Thank you so much. People never understand why I love my city, because they’ve never really seen it.

The giant can sat in front of the fist for five hours while the news crew at Fox News attempted to figure out what a Giant Crisco Can and a Giant Fist have in common. 
Fox News rather than understanding the joke posted a picture of the Fist on its Facebook page along with the following note:

“Local artist Jerry Vile has created something he calls “Vessel of Hope”. He hopes it may in someway ease the pain of having the Detroit bankruptcy shoved into our faces. Can anyone explain what this means???”

The team at Queerty were the first to make fun of Fox News, writing “Let us start by saying this fist was not aimed at your face in the first place. You were facing the wrong direction when you took the photo…”

OH. MY. FUCKING. GOD.

This is the most amazing “explanation post” ever.

The ONLY time the crowd got excited last night was when Stafford threw to Johnson, because everyone knew he was getting closer and closer to that record.
I thought it was really sweet when he ran off the field and gave the “record breaking ball” to his dad, who was on the side line. Congratulations to C.J. - although I’m sure if we asked him; he would trade in this record for another playoff season.

So I found this Cat in my barn - and its WAY to f’in cold here in Michigan to let it stay out there. With my dog, Crazy, just going through her leg amputation, I couldn’t bring it in the house so I had to take it to a friends mom who runs a make-shift animal rescue out of her house.
My friends mom, took it to the vet - and while the sweet thing is already spayed, it did have earmites and worms. I know it’s a lot to ask during the holiday season, as everyone is strapped for cash - but if you have even an extra dollar or two to donate towards the bill; it would be amazing. She does this out of her own pocket, and the kindness of her heart.
We think she [the cat] was either (a) dumped which happens a lot out here in the country - kitten turns into a cat, and people don’t want it anymore, or (b) wandered a bit too far away from home, and couldn’t find its way back. [Although I know if my cat was gone for a week, I’d be knocking on every door in the neighborhood and putting up flyers… just sayin’]
Anyway, if you have a couple extra dollars to donate this holiday season, that would be amazing. If you could share this picture - maybe someone wants a well behaved cat who gets along with other animals and is REALLY sweet. [Detroit, Michigan Area] Or maybe we can find its real owners. Please contact me, and I’ll get you in touch with the right people. Lets find this sweet baby her home this Holiday Season! Thank you so much people of tumblr!
