Comerica Park, Home of the Detroit Tigers
You will all note that I changed my profile picture to depict Comerica Park's fountain, which only goes off when one of the Detroit Tigers hit a home run. General Motors has bought and paid for this advertisement area of the stadium since the stadium opened.
Sadly, this year GM informed them that they would be unable to renew/pay for the contract this year.
Gladly, the decision was made to keep the fountain with GM along with adding Ford Motor Co., and Chrysler -- gratis (free of charge).
What would Detroit be without the three auto makers? And can you just imagine it being taken over by KIA, Toyota, or the like and the Tigers home runs would illuminate them? That would be just wrong.
KUDOS to Mike Ilitch, the Tigers owner, for this generous dedication to the Big Three and Michigan!!!
