Rock, Detroit Red Wings captain Nicklas Lidstrom and retired Red Wings defenseman Chris Chelios used paddleboards to cross the Detroit River to Belle Isle. A bare-footed Rock then strolled to a beachfront microphone and lectern and said during a news conference that he'd be playing Comerica Park Aug. 12 with opening act Sammy Hagar and the Wabos.  more...

Lake Michigan shoreline from the Upper PeninsulaWith the temperature in the 90s the next two days it got me thinking about going to the beach. Specifically any beach along Lake Michigan since it’s the Great Lake that is closest to us.

Ode to a Terrible Regatta

  #
Don’t get me wrong. The regatta itself, the District 11 Laser Championships, was not terrible. In fact, it was fantastic. Hosted by the smoothly-run, beautifully-situated, Fishing Bay Yacht Club down in Deltaville, Va., on the southern Chesapeake Bay, the regatta was blessed with excellent winds, a great crowd of sailors, and a Laser-loving chef, Alain Vincey, who cooked up a spectacular Saturday-evening dinner. Even the camping was nice.  more...

How Napoleon Caused the Detroit NOOD

  #

I'm just returning from the 2011 Sperry Top-Sider Detroit NOOD. It's been a long weekend, but I'm wide awake. So I'm doing what I often do when I'm ready to fall asleep—reading "War and Peace."

At the very beginning of Part 2, somewhere around page 714, depending which edition you're reading, Tolstoy goes into historian-philosopher mode, talking about the infinite number of causes, small and large, behind the Napoleonic Wars, and how removing any one cause would've prevented the war from occurring the way it did, if the war would've happened at all.  more...
