What I call “laughin’ and scratchin’, I’ve been doing a long time. I grew up in Chicago, and the long and winding road of radio brought me to Kalamazoo in January of ‘87. Had an awful lot of fun at one special radio station, next door, but like Tom Brady, let’s see what we can do here. Both my sons were born here. Michael lives here and is a long time Rocker listener, and David is now living the dream in Chicago, hoping to be a comedy writer. Proud to say they're my best friends, as is the love of my life, Kathy, the hottest woman alive.

Meet The Man Who Was the GM of the World’s Champion Detroit Lions
The names Jim Campbell (longtime Detroit Tigers GM), Russ Thomas, longtime Detroit Lions GM through many, many years of mediocrity, Jim Devallano and Ken Holland (NHL Hall of Fame GM's for the Detroit Red Wings are all pretty well known; but why not the general manager of the three-time World Champion Detroit Lions of the 1950's?
Upon Further Review, Maybe Dan Campbell Was The Right Choice For Detroit
If you're a Detroit Lions fan, you almost certainly did it. The topic here is Dan Campbell. If you don't follow football, he's the coach of the Detroit Lions. The Lions had degenerated into the NFL's laughing stock even before he was hired. And then with pretty much every Lions fan pulling for him, the team came out of the blocks at 0-8, so there was an ever-growing "uh-oh, here we go again" vibe building.
Detroit Tigers’ Secret Weapon Makes The Baez Signing Even Better
We all saw the headlines when the Detroit Tigers signed former Chicago Cub and New York Met Javier Baez to a $140 free agent deal. In many ways it's maybe a better deal than if they'd gotten Carlos Correa.
