Flew in on Spirit Air Red-eye.
1st stop, the birthplace of Mo Town.
Every neighborhood had abandoned blighted houses.
Many vacant buildings and store fronts.
Great ribs at a local BBQ spot. Again, this place was humming in a neighborhood of desolation
Fans were great
Some delusion possible
Tailgating happens at the Eastern market, about .25 miles from stadium. Interesting how they throw empty beer cans on street and folks come along to pick them up. One elderly couple had big bags to put the cans in. A touch of dignity in an undignified job.
Great time at the stadium. Ford Field is the jewel of the city.
Thank you for a great time and best wishes to a prosperous future
