I have a question. I have a friend from Grand Rapids who is on my case with their typical Napoleon Complex stuff about how Grand Rapids has so much more investment in it right now than Detroit in terms of development of real estate. I was curious if this is true (I highly doubt it) and to help me out with this, how much has been invested in Detroit since 2000 and how much more do you think there will be for the remainder of the decade?

Just tell your friend that Grand Rapids is still in Michigan's 4th most populous county (Kent)...

Oh...I remind him frequently. Yet he still has these visions that Grand Rapids is something that it is not. He thinks that the obvious choice for the Pittsburgh Penguins, if they chose to relocate, is Grand Rapids. No joke.

Prob. the best bet is to take/bring your friend to Detroit. I would say that the development in Detroit is very self evident. Then he/she can compare for him/herself.

Haha tell your buddy that the NHL is going to do everything it can to keep it in Pittsburg, and if not, Houston looks to be the only other option. Sorry, Grand Rapids Stick to minor league hockey
