I'm not sure if you've heard but the Red Wings lost the Stanley Cup to the Pittsburgh Penguins. And though we here at Model D love Pittsburgh, especially our sister pub Pop City, we hate the taste of humble pie. We'd much rather have a Coney.
Anyway, let's put the ice behind us and get on with the water. It is summer, after all. Let's also drop in on the Detroit tweeters. And find out what's up.
Here are this weeks memorable tweets:@ClariceTinsley
: Hello Twittizens...70 & sunny in Detroit. FOX 2 is showing the Red Bull Air Races over the Detroit River. Great action & gorgeous sight.
Twittizens? That's funny... So, even if you didn't get a chance to see the air races in person, you probably heard them. Whether its downtown, or around town, we love a good excuse to get out and enjoy the city, as long as it doesn't have you running for cover.@heathermarie356
: is at the Detroit Zoo with my BFF & 2 nieces! Beautiful day!
It seemed like the whole city was basking in the gorgeous weather we've had this past week...
Including this next tweeter, who was getting ready for what sounds like some serious porch-sitting:@ChrisJMiller
: Just finished rebuilding the porch on this house in Detroit. No one will fall off it now, railings are good.
Good work, Chris. Safety first!
And special props to this weeks all-star tweeter, for keeping a winning attitude even after the Wings' bummer of a loss last weekend. Believe it or not, Detroiters can dish out complements as well as we take them...@ktpupp
: Oh BTW, good morning Detroit! Met some really cool Penguin fans last night. They praised the Wings & look forward to a rematch next year!
Still... It would have been nice to beat them to a pulp. In terms of hockey. Don't take the literally Pittsburgh... we're not that aggressive and weird here in Detroit.
