Happy Anniversary Court Square Styling Shop In the Shadow of OLD CITY HALL Hair Stylists Mr. Arthur Mr. Jim 15 Court Square Boston, MA 02108 (617) S23-77SS Greetings once again from the Midwest where we con- tinue to cover golf and visit with relatives. Our travels last week took us to Michi- gan for the U.S. Senior Open at Indianwood Golf and Coun- try Club about 30 miles north of Detroit. While in the area we bought the two metro papers each day -- the Detroit Free Press and the Detroit News. We noticed one major difference right away. The amount of space given over to coverage of automobiles, motor sports and the automotive industry in general is quite a bit more than the space devoted to such topics in either the Boston Globe or Boston Herald. So much so in fact that we'd suggest that anyone inter- ested in anything automotive log onto the web sites of both newspapers on a regu- lar basis. While we were here the Red Wings held a big press at Comerica Park -- the home of the Detroit Tigers -- to announce that there will be not one but two alumni games between former play- ers of the two Original Six franchises -- the Wings and the Toronto Maple Leafs -- on December 31 at the baseball stadium. So many alumni wanted to get into the one game that was originally announced that a second game has now been penciled in for the same date. Fans attending both games will thus be able to see between 80 to 100 former players from the two historic franchises in action. The next day, New Year's Day, will bring the NHL's sixth annual Winter Classic, to be played between the current Red Wings and Maple Leafs. But that game will not be played at the baseball sta- dium. Instead it will be played at Michigan Stadium (The Big House) in Ann Arbor, the home of the University of Michigan football team. The potential exists for a massive crowd since Michigan Sta- dium has a capacity of over 109,000. Temperature and other weather conditions will go a long way in determining how many people actually show up. At a February, 2010 college game held outdoors at Camp Randall Stadium -- the home of the University of Wisconsin football team attendance was significantly below the 68,000 capacity of that stadium. IT'S GETTING CLOSER- With the days of July dwin- dling down, with August on the horizon and with footballs already flying through the air in some places, the har- bingers of fall are getting closer. The NHL has already announced the pre-season and regular season schedules for each team. Rookies will report in early September fol- lowed by the veterans 7-10 days later. But then again it all might not happen. The NHL's Collective Bargaining Agree- ment expires on Septem- ber 15 --just about the time the full camps open and only days before the first pre- season games are scheduled to be played. If an agreement doesn't get done this summer there is absolutely no real wiggle room once the dead- line comes. The NBA went through the same thing last year but had almost four months of down time to negotiate. Granted, things didn't get done and a portion of the season was lost. But at least there was four months of down time to nego- tiate before games were lost. With the NHL, there will be no down time to negotiate if a deal is not in place by Sep- tember 15. The damage will be immediate -- camps will close just days after they open, pre-season games will be cancelled and the start of the regular season in early October will be placed in im- mediate jeopardy. Something to think about as the warm days of summer continue.
