THE REVIEW: Passing the torch

Watching the Detroit Red Wings prepare to take the ice at the Joe Louis Arena that evening, Ray Ferraro couldn’t have hidden the smile across his face, even if he wanted to.

THE REVIEW: Becoming the eighth man

Baseball, as with any sport, is a game of adversity. It’s your best pitch against his best swing and try as we may, we aren’t always able to come out on top.
