posted by Oscar October 3, 2015

The Detroit Pistons have unveiled their “Detroit Chrome” uniforms, the alternate ‘fits the team will be rocking for seven games throughout the upcoming 2015-16 NBA season.

Speaking about what inspired the Detroit Chrome jerseys nba.com states:

 “the Detroit Chrome jerseys came about as a way to honor our coolest cars from the past and the cars of the future. Detroit is universally known as the auto capitol of the world, where chrome leaves an indelible mark on the cars we create.”

The “Chrome” uniforms are matte chrome-colored with a navy trim and “Detroit” in that same tint, inspired by the blue collar work ethic that the auto industry & region was built on.

Video: X Games Detroit Bid

posted by Oscar May 11, 2013

The “Motor City,” Detroit, Michigan is bidding to host the next edition of the X Games and they’ve put out an excellent, epic video to help their efforts. The X Games Detroit bid team created this video as part of their campaign to bring the ESPN X Games to Detroit; as the producers of the video say “Detroit is where the X Games belong.” After seeing this, I’d be happy if the city that gave us Motown got some more life brought to their streets, especially by way of the famous “Xtreme” sports competition
