THE LONGEST GAME. EVER.

June 24, 2013

THE LONGEST GAME. EVER.

Today in 1962, the Detroit Tigers played in the longest Major League Baseball game in history. Against the New York Yankees, the Tigers played for 7 hours in a 22 inning game!

 

Does the 7th inning stretch get multiplied in a 22 inning game?

BEER CITY USA!

June 20, 2013

BEER CITY USA!

For the second straight year, Michigan is home to the Beer City, USA champion. Grand Rapids, where did you learn to brew? From your grand pappy who carried that rusty axe and spoke about things that happened in nineteen-dickity-two? Either way, you are one sweet venue for enjoying a craft beer. In fact, you're THE BEST IN THE ENTIRE COUNTRY OF AMERICA.

 

So... As Michiganders, we celebrate. And we rejoice. And we wear the softest, best shirts around: Beer City USA unisex shirts here and Beer City USA women shirts here. Made in the USA of the softest tri-blend garments ever.

 

Love,

The Mitten State

JACK WHITE SAVES MASONIC TEMPLE.

June 5, 2013

JACK WHITE SAVES MASONIC TEMPLE.

Jack White has been revealed as the anonymous donor who paid $142,000 in back taxes to keep the Masonic Temple's doors open as a venue to musicians. The historic building would have gone up for auction.  

 

Thanks, Jack. Michigan loves you.
