Michigan Stadium

Culinary Staples: Sign us up for Coney’s, with pulled pork and ribs on the side.

Seafood Tradition: We all know the legend of the octopus, but Nashville has the catfish. The tradition supposedly dates back to an art contest held in 2003 Artists painted big fiberglass catfish that were placed across the city. Somehow, one fan snuck a real live catfish into the building, threw it onto the ice surface and the whole thing stuck.

That’s the story we’ve been told and we’re sticking to it, unless proven otherwise.

Main Street: Woodward holds the heart of Detroit, while Broadway boasts the best of Nashville.

Concert Venue:
They have the Grand Ole Opry, while we have the FOX Theatre.

The Die-Hards: Ours are Wing Nuts, while the Predators rowdy fans sit in a section called ‘Cell Block 303.’
