I Heart Johnny Damon
Dear Mr. Damon:
You are a gentleman for defending Detroit against the outrageous words of that Beantown sports columnist who dared disparage my city.
"Detroit gets a bad rap. I love it here, my family loves it here, a bunch of the players who have been here a while love it here, the new guys love it here. There's a lot to offer here," Damon said. "We know the auto industry and the economy take a beating. But it's up to us players to keep people excited, to entertain people, to have people enjoy their lives, enjoy watching their Detroit Tigers."
From the Boston Globe:
Think about it: For the next five weeks, you could live in downtown Boston and your wife could shop on Newbury Street. Or you could live in downtown Detroit, amid the boarded-up buildings and the proverbial skeleton frames of burned-out Chevrolets. Is this really a tough call? Really. Why wouldn't Damon come back to Boston?
My answer: You, buddy-boy.
