Hey fellow Detroiters!
YES! Daylight Savings Time is back in effect! I’m sure we are all looking forward to the “longer” days and being able to enjoy daylight well into the evenings!
As you probably already know, Detroit Lions’ Calvin Johnson announced his retirement from the NFL after 9 great seasons. I’m bummed I didn’t get to see a live Lions game this past season, but we wish him all the best!
You can get Calvin Johnson/Detroit Lions/any Detroit team gear here!
***On sale now: Marlon Wayans at The Fillmore Detroit on May 6.
Tigers season is coming up in a couple of weeks – you can still get tickets via the resale route. Check out tickets HERE.
