Ask FS! 1/4

Welcome back, loyal readers! It's time once again for the column that single-handedly cured the plague, Ask FS!

Today's question comes to us Paul, in Minneapolis Minnesota. Paul wonders
Why is Detroit known as Hockeytown?
Great question Paul! The answer traces itself all the way back to the dark ages, otherwise known as the 1990s. As a marketing move to attract fans, Detroit executives decided to whipe out the fact that the team had been one of the worst teams in the league for the last 20 years, and nicknamed the city of Detroit "hockeytown!" Detroit has been jokingly referred to as such ever since. Another tradition that began around that time was to have every game be Halloween night, where the fans all come dressed up as empty seats!

Well that's all for today folks. Remember, if you have a question to ask the oracle, just place it in the comments section, or drop me an email, and remember as always,

Let's Go Caps!

Kinda struggled through that closing, my man.

I blame that on the fact that both I and my proofreader are sick.
