Where is the nice downtown?

That is my question to you Detroit.  Where is the nice downtown?  My friends and I are on a bachelor party trip of epicness (that's not a real word, but I like it).  Our first stop was in Detroit for a Tigers game.  Comerica is a really nice park and we had a good time.  I was not a fan of the scoreboard.  You can do better than that Comerica.  The worst part was driving in.  Man, Detroit is one crappy looking city as you drive in.  I have never seen so many falling down buildings in a major city before.  Especially in the downtown area.  I see why Michael Wilbon calls it Beirut.

The only good thing about seeing all this crappiness was that we got to make several Robocop jokes.  There really is nothing like a good Robocop joke.

So, back to this bachelor party business.  Day one was a smashing success.  We hit up Bell's Brewery in Kalamazoo and then Detroit.  We had a post-game beer at Hockeytown (I really dislike the Red Wings, but it was kind of a cool bar), we then hit up the Old Shillelagh which was a good place if you like to grind on girls (and who doesn't?).  We ended the evening at the Greektown Casino.  We all survived and no one got arrested.

We head for Toronto in a couple of hours where we will talk with mounties, drink milk from a bag, and take in a Blue Jays game.*  There will be more posts dealing with this trip tomorrow if the internets exist in Canada.  Otherwise they will come on Monday.

And to end this post in the best way possible...a picture.

*only one of these things may be true.

Line of the night, by one of the party to a nine-year-old girl (though some sources indicate said nine-year-old was a dude) who was bashing Milwaukee:

"Your downtown is a hazard to low-flying planes. There aren't any lights in any of the buildings."

Eat it, little boy/girl.

I hope I don't have a bloody stool tonight after my marathon pooping binge today. Titties!
