I try and keep up on my worldly events every day, so I am usually checking the news sites once or twice a day (or whenever I get a minute). I normally check NY Times, LA Times, and Monroe Evening News (just for a little home-town touch). Today I saw an article in the LA Times that made me say "Ouch, that's harsh". Here is a little of the story:

Sorry hockeytown, it's the Ducks' time
All signs point to the Red Wings falling short again
May 9, 2007

Sorry, Detroit.You can't call yourself Hockeytown anymore.

Not when Joe Louis Arena hasn't been sold out for any of the Red Wings' six home playoff games this spring and the Ducks are riding a 28-game sellout streak.

Not when the Red Wings, who rely heavily on 45-year-old defenseman Chris Chelios and 42-year-old goaltender Dominik Hasek, had to mobilize their walkers to rally past the spineless San Jose Sharks in six games in the second round.

Not when the Ducks, who won each of the first two rounds in five games and are rested for Friday's Western Conference finals opener, don't fear playing at "The Joe," as the downtown arena is known.

Now that was harsh... I can't wait for the Wings to kick some Duck BUTT! I guess I can't be mad, since I'm sure the Detroit Free Press is running articles on the downfalls of the Ducks, but still it was just shocking to read THE JOE and THE WINGS on blast!
