I don’t know if I can talk about that because this city has kind of grown under my skin. I love staying downtown at the hotel we stay at and I look around when I drive in in the morning. I go about 5 o’clock in the morning for a 1 o’clock game and I just drive around the streets a little bit and, like I told you, I am feeling it right now talking about it. We address it every week. We play for the city. It is really important to us.
I think one of the things that really upsets me is people don’t know what it is all about here. How beautiful it is and the people are so great. They are typical Midwestern, maybe Northeastern people, where you walk down, go to a store, and everybody is cordial and nice. It is too bad nobody knows that. They talk about Detroit like it is old New York. It is not right. We want to prove that point. They call us over-aggressive and yeah, we are. We play for a big reason. We play for this city and for the state and I got to stop, I am telling you, it gets to me talking about that because I feel like I belong here. I look around and people work for a living here. When I drive in about 4, it looks like a traffic jam. I finally figure out where they all go; they go to work. For me, personally, this is real big and real important.
