Bill Laimbeer : Ndamukong Suh :: Bad Boy : BAD BOY

DETROIT -- Somewhere on an interstate between Florida and Michigan, one of the biggest, baddest athletes in Detroit history flipped on his radio Sunday for the Lions game. And Bill Laimbeer smiled. There is this brute of a man playing on the defensive line for Detroit now, and in some ways, he reminds Laimbeer of himself. They say that Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh plays dirty; Laimbeer says he plays hard. They fine Suh and tell him he needs to stop being so reckless; Laimbeer, the antagonistic heart and soul of the Detroit Pistons' "Bad Boys" championship teams from two decades ago, says the enterprising young lad is simply doing his part to shape the culture of Detroit Lions football. "Not everybody can be the pretty boys," Laimbeer said. http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/page/hotread-NdamukongSuh/detroit-lions-ndamukong-suh-become-face-franchise-wants-more

NYT: 36 Hours in Detroit

DESPITE recent news stories of a population exodus from Detroit, there are many reasons to make a pilgrimage to this struggling city right now — and not just because Eminem’s slick Super Bowl commercial showcased the inner strength of the Motor City. No video can portray the passion one finds on the streets of Detroit these days, where everyone from the doorman to the D.J. will tell you they believe in this city’s future. While certain areas are indeed eerily empty, other neighborhoods — including midtown, downtown and Corktown — are bustling with new businesses that range from creperies and barbecue joints catering to the young artists and entrepreneurs migrating to Motown, to a just-opened hostel that invites tourists to explore Detroit with the aid of local volunteer guides. In the historic Brush Park district, architecture buffs will find some lovely refurbished houses, and along Woodward Avenue, restored film palaces are a wonderful reminder that this city’s storied past includes not just automobiles, but also the entertainment industry. No urban enthusiast will want to miss the recovery that Detroit is now attempting.
