    ... are Detroiters gonna let this happen.  And if by some freak stroke of climate-challenged nature it does, someone's gonna carjack the first @sshole that tries to drive his Galtian Bentley across the Belle Isle Bridge into good ole downtown Detroit.  (Don't get me wrong - Detroit is not the crime-ridden dystopia it's portrayed as... but I think Detroiters could set aside our differences and all come together to punk these libertarian b*tches).

    By the way, Belle Isle is beautiful (friendly people, Belle Isle Nature Zoo, beautiful kayaking around it), and just like Detroit, rife with beauty, history, and neglect.  There's a "World Cup" soccer field on one side that contains the sod used at the 1980(?) World Cup held at the Pontiac Silverdome.  Great field, except you have to dodge the chicken bones and broken glass.  Oh, my decrepit city, so full of promise...

      sod from the 1994 World Cup - I admit, I didn't get into soccer till way later and had nothing to do with this World Cup.  But I've played on its sod!!!
