    Yesterday marked the 25th anniversary of the death of guitar legend Stevie Ray Vaughan. Recently inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with his band, Double Trouble, Vaughan gained notoriety in the ‘80s for ushering in a blues resurrection with original classics like “Pride and Joy” and “The Sky is Crying.” His white-knuckled solo on David Bowie’s “Let’s Dance” also exposed his talents to the world of pop, though Vaughan was traditionally trained by mentor—and blues legend in his own right—Albert King.…

From Mechelle:  Boyd, a WBCA All-American this season, seems eager to traverse three time zones and jump right into a different kind of classroom setting. She will get the chance to learn from veteran guards such as Tanisha Wright (a free-agent signee who spent her first 10 seasons in Seattle), Epiphanny Prince (obtained in February from Chicago in a trade for Cappie Pondexter) and Essence Carson. “I think those players are going to prepare me and challenge me each day to get better,” said Boyd, who averaged 13.4 points, 6.8…

  • Brandon Jennings fine with coming off the bench

    The injured guard spoke about his willingness to come off the bench to start the season. Brandon Jennings, on the "Point Game" podcast with Blazers beat writer Jabari Young and Detroit traitor and now Bulls beat writer Vincent Goodwill, recently spoke about a number of issues both basketball-related and on life in general, such as his decision to live in Rome for a year, his opinion on Straight Outta Compton and his stance on Meek vs. Drake (and why he deleted his Twitter). However, for Pistons fans, there's only one story which matters, and that is his answer when asked on how he viewed the…

    Steve Hinson
    27 Aug 2015 | 7:50 am
    The Dow may be all over the place, but it’s a bull market in Detroit. It's the summer. Everyone's optimistic about their team's chances. Every fan thinks their team is a playoff team, even those that will be positioning themselves for the lottery by mid-December. That was us last year, remember? But on an individual basis, there is a lot to like about this year's squad. No Josh Smiths. No question marks about where players fit in. No one on the trade block. Probably not 20 players logging minutes for the team. We'll be going more in depth for previews on individuals and the team as we get…

    Football season is here, which means it’s rational to get irrational about basketball season starting. There's no time like the end of summer when it comes to basketball optimism. Maybe football optimism, but I dunno. That's Roger Goodell's league, and he sucks. We're a NBA blog, because the NBA's better. Or maybe it's not. But the Pistons are better. So to get ready for the start of the start of NBA season by looking back at the top six Pistons games from last season. Pistons at Spurs, January 6 This was a no-brainer. In the midst of the euphoria that came after waiving Josh Smith, we…
  • Let's call it a comeback: Looking back at 2014-2015 Pistons win-loss margins

    Jason Brunskowski
    25 Aug 2015 | 11:04 am
    A win is better than a loss. But more than that, it is not how you start the game but how you finish it. The goal of any competition is to have fun and enjoy the competition whether you win or lose. But you still want to win. In 2014-15, the Pistons did not win as much as they would have liked. But as the season went on, their losses were not so bad. The final score of any basketball game does not tell the whole story of the game. A team could be winning by 22 points with 11 minutes to go in the game, go to the bench players, and end up winning the game by only seven. This was the case on…

After losing 12 of their previous 13 road tilts, the Angels (65-62) began this nine-game trek by winning two of three from Detroit. "It's special to be able to do it here, but more importantly to get a win in a tight playoff race," said Shoemaker, whose Angels are among three teams within one game of each other for the AL's second wild-card spot.

    In many ways, Justin Verlander is the perfect symbol of an uncertain future for the Detroit Tigers. When he spent more than two months on the disabled list and then struggled in his first few starts of 2015, it looked as if Verlander's best days were long behind him - a bad sign for Detroit, considering his exorbitant contract that lasts through at least 2019. Now, the future suddenly looks a bit more promising for Verlander.

    Between the endless intake of hot dogs and burgers during tailgate season and the destructive stress-eating habits of finals season, it really does feel as though it’s impossible to stay healthy during college. Take it from this recent college grad – I know the feeling! One thing I learned in college is that many times, the first step in staying healthy begins with simply knowing where to go for healthy food options. This is especially hard for college students who are moving to a campus away from their hometowns and have no idea where to go for something fresh and…
