I know there are many many people out there, like myself, who are originally from the Detroit area but have moved elsewhere for whatever reason.
I currently live near Chicago but I go back to Michigan all the time to see my dad. I would love to hear from some other people here that are Michiganders living in another state.
Do you know any other Red Wings fans in your new area? How much crap do you get from the local clowns for being a Wings fan? Of course, living near Chicago, all of my friends are now suddenly "die hard" Hawks fans. Note, these are the same people that I could never get to go to hockey game with me in Chicago ten years ago when the Hawks were horrid.
