OmarfromtheO visits Detroit, Michigan Part 3

Still in Michigan, Omar looks for a coney with ‘character’ and decides to visit Lafayette Coney Island and American Coney Island. The gang waves hi to Canada and takes a casual stroll around Downtown Detroit. He wonders how his Floridian friends will stand wearing shorts in the not-so-hot Detroit weather.

The gang wraps up their last full day in Detroit by checking out Greek Independence Day parade, and doing laps around the old Detroit Tigers’ Stadium in Corktown. Really old. And (formerly) wooden?! People started playing baseball in this place in 1896! The stadium went all steel and fancy in 1912 and played its last game on “The Corner” on September 27th, 1999.

After several attempts to save Tiger Stadium, only its playing field remains, but the City of Detroit plans on repurposing this historic site for a youth sports complex and headquarters for the Detroit Police Athletic League. Atta boy, Detroit!

RoadTip: Keep your head up while being aware of killer potholes.

How exactly does one balance two forks and two toothpicks on top of a salt shaker? Be amazed and watch Episode 3 to see for yourself!
