  1. 200 years later, 'The Star-Spangled Banner' still has emotional power

    I stand, put my hand over my heart and sing along. In my monotone. That is when I'm live at the games. My colleagues all know that and OK, I'm a bit eccentric. What they don't know is that when I'm home and TV actually shows the rendering of 'The Star-Spangled Banner' instead of jumping to a big-bucks commercial, I stand up and sing along, too. Hand over heart.

  2. Lions should play this season as a tribute to William Clay Ford

    It was time for the wise guy to deliver his annual obituary before the pro football season started. He had a microphone in front of him and a vast audience in radio prime time listening to what had been billed as wisdom.

  3. This season's most valuable players must be living in La-La-Land

    The words are most valuable player. Simple words. MVP the annual vote fest that so frequently provides contentiousness, contrariness and controversy on the previously noted media outlets. Some years the speculation approaches bloodshed.

  4. Derek Jeter, soon to be baseball history, harkens back to Honus

    The trips were 142 miles, due east. From Kalamazoo to Tiger Stadium. The kid on board with his dad. But for this kid it became different. He carried his own ambitions to the old ballpark in downtown Detroit and they came true.

  5. It's August, and the Tigers have yet to prove they are for real

    No comfort zone for the Tigers. Not this year. The 2014 Tigers were designed, supposedly, to be reminiscent of the Detroit club of 1984. A 30th anniversary celebration.

  6. Tigers have playoff competition out west -- maybe more than they can handle

    Major League Baseball's All-Star Game overkill with Derek Jeter is etched into the history books. It's over. Now MLB's television commercial hard sell is October. The playoffs.
