This time Patrick Roy of the Avs comes back for more against a different Redwings goalie, Chris Osgood.
Ice hockey goalie fight are the best! Patrick Roy (Avalanche) goes at it against Mike Vernon (Redwings).
By luck I found that there was one ticket left for Redwings vs. Coyotes at Joe LouisÂ this WednesdayÂ right in row 1. That’s right, I’ll be watching the Redwings right on the boards, roughly next to the face-off dot on the penalty box side (not sure if it’s the home or away end though). Whilst I hope the Redwings win, I’d really like to see a good close game. Now I’m off to buy a Redwings jersey and a novelty foam hand.

Just got back from Detriot Pistons vs. Orlando Magic @ Detroit. This is the second (and probably last) NBA game I will go to. It was one sided from outset, just like the Pistons v Clippers game I went to last year…Detroit killed them in that one too. When basketball is that one-sided, it may as well be golf…Zzzzzzzzzz.

I was in Detroit late last year for work, and decided I had to check out what constituted a BMX track over there. The nearest track I could find was Waterford-Oaks BMX trackÂ in Waterford (county?). I would suggest it is in the greater Detroit metro area and as such the only track I would consider anywhere near metropolitan Detroit. From downtown Detroit to Waterford it would be similar to driving from Melbourne CBD to Lilydale.
The track has mostly ashphalt berms and a good range of jumps. The jumps started from something as big as say first double at Knox down to rhythms, as well as a medium size pro-line (no where near as big as Park Orchards though). I have no idea what the track and jumps were like, but there were a couple of fairly good riders and the track appeared to flow for them. I doÂ think their rhythms and smaller jumps were a bit flat, but Eastfield’s rhythms look flat to me then it all changes when I ride them!
