There’s probably a game on
No city loves its four sports teams as much as we love the Wings, the Tigers (except this year), the (ugh) Lions, and the Pistons, who are as close to our hearts as Auburn Hills is to Detroit. Heck, most towns don’t even have four sports teams. And best of all there’s almost always a game on.
Here’s the thing: Detroit, while dangerous in certain places and often backwards and frustrating when it comes to city development (read: like many other American cities), is also home to some of the most friendly, wholesome, and kind-hearted individuals you’ll find in the Midwest. In Detroit, you’re likely to find a vibe of collaboration, not competition. At least that’s what a lot of folks in the small business, start-up, and tech worlds are experiencing, and is also why a lot of people are starting to move here. Yes, we’re looking at you, former Brooklynites.
