Hello everyone, and thanks for the ping!

Another trivia question, this time about Detroit. This week, Jerome Bettis was given a key to the city by Mayer Kwame Kilpatrick. Who was the last person to receive this key?

Only went to Detroit once in my life. The best thing about the town were the "Coney Island" hot dog places that served the best hot dogs that were, ironically, nothing like the hot dogs on Coney Island in New York. I also LOVED Greenfield Village, Henry Ford's History Museaum, in nearby Dearborn. Had some great middle eastern food in the latter town as well.

If I make it back, I'd love to check out a game at Ford Field. I know that the city is largely a sh-thole and makes the Bronx look like Beverly Hills, but I'm sure there are other interesting things to see in the area.

They stink, and haven't seen the inside of a Super Bowl since I was in high school.

But Marv Levy's in the front office, so good things are on the way!

I am, but I'm sure not rooting for the Seahawks! Since it's all but hopeless to see the Browns in the Super Bowl before I'm in a nursing home...might as well root for the Steelers.
