Detroit



We got to go to a Tigers game on Saturday. I've never been to a professional baseball game before. It was pretty cool to see how huge it was and how many fans were there.

Long story short - sometime during the 6th inning, we were freezing and it was late and they were losing by 5. So we left. 2 hours later when we got home we turned on the tv and saw that the game had just ended after the 12th inning and they had come back to win 7-6. Oops...






We were there really early so I apologize for all the random pictures. Erin O'Bryan and I had a lot of time on our hands, and our husbands were good sports. Most of the time.

It was our first time out to Detroit and we were really leery once we got there. All the houses you can see are either burned or ripped apart. All buildings have bars on the windows, there are shady characters everywhere. The stadium is really nice and 1 block in every direction was pretty too. But you shouldn't go any further than that.

I just have no idea why this is in the top 5 most dangerous cities in the United States.
You know all those pictures and stories you hear about Detroit? They are all true.

No but seriously, 8 mile has embassy suites and target and clean landscaping and everything nice. It is nothing like the movie portrays it to be.

We can't wait to come back!!

I love that last picture of the two of you! And that's a little ironic that 8 mile is so nice when the rest of Detroit is in shambles. So sad.
