It’s a general rule that in places where it doesn’t get cold enough to have ice, people don’t really give a shit about hockey... unless, of course, you’re talking about Tampa, FL, which has both a hockey team and a ton of Michigan natives. Hockey is religion in certain parts of the state, as it should be. There’s nothing more entertaining than brutality on ice. We're full proponents of fights at the faceoff.
Ahem… this one is tricky. Wherever you stand when it comes to labor unions, you can’t deny that Michigan is one of the states that has been most affected by them over the course of its manufacturing history. Meaning, you’ll rarely catch a Michigander who's without an opinion when it comes to unions.
