I am months late producing this video. But now that it's finished, I want to show it off. Earlier this year, my son's 8th grade basketball team tied for the city championship. Here are highlights from the season.

Those of us living in the Detroit area got a real treat last night.

The Tigers 8-4 victory completed a 3-game sweep of the Yankees - their first sweep in The Bronx since 1956.

The Red Wings dominated an injury-riddled Colorado Avalanche 8-2 to sweep the second round of the NHL playoffs.  Johan "Mule" Franzen notched a hat trick (3 goals in one game) and is playing as well as anyone in the playoffs.

Meanwhile the Pistons advanced to the second round of the NBA playoffs with a 100-77 rout of the Philadelphia 76ers.  Just a few days ago, Detroit trailed 2-1 in the series following a one-sided Philadelphia victory.

All three victories completed a victorious series and each occurred on the road. 

Detroit sports fans have had much to cheer about over the years, but I don't recall a day like Thursday, when all 3 of the major professional sports teams had such big victories simultaneously.  (I understand that Detroit once boasted a professional football team but I can't find anyone here who remembers them.)
