You know I was thinking about the poor s.o.b. the other day & I was thinking, did he really lay a curse on The Tigers?
Is it worse than the one on the Red Wings 'til they apologized to Terrible Ted?
Why does that historic photo remind me of the cover of Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Street Survivors"?
Would it only take somebody a 5th of Beam & weed to go out in public dressed like THAT-Downriver or no Downriver?
Why couldn't the Freep or anybody notice he'd o.d.'d on pain pills in April of 2001 til 3 years after he was dead?
Why is this played up & not the 2 LAPD cruisers & newsvan flipped & set afire outside Staples Center after the 2000 NBA Championship?
Did anybody here know the guy?

Bubba was used as a stereotype by Coleman Young to serve his purpose of portraying the suburbs as hostile, ignorant and intolerant.
Did you see what happened in Montreal after their 7th game victory that only advanced them into the quarter finals?

Actually I thought the freep did an article about him just after he passed away.
It was discussed on this site several times.
I have to feel sorry for the guy; I recall reading that he felt ashamed even to the time of his death. That was not deserved.

I agree with Dan. I feel sorry for the clueless yob. He was just partyin'. Plus, I really doubt people today still remember that photo as an image of Detroit. At the time the pic made an impact, but people forget.

They never forget the bad stuff about Detroit. It's unfortunate but true. Too bad it's reinforced by clueless local leaders.
