Whether you are a hard core Red Wings fan or not, the Detroit Free Press has a great story about a guy named Al Sobotka. (Kudos to Al Sobotka has worked for the Red Wings for 45 years and has been the building manager for the Joe Louis Arena for...a long time. At the Red Wings games, Al's the guy you've seen driving the Zamboni and swinging the octopi. And he's kind of a big deal - he's in the Polish-American Sports Hall of Fame in Troy. Al's getting ready to say goodbye to the Joe and move his Zamboni over to the new Little Caesars Arena next year. But he'll probably never forget the Joe.

So, sit down and read about some real Detroit sports history.
