It's been a long time. Last time the Tigers made the playoffs, Reagan was president, the Red Wings had a 32 yr Cup drought, The Pistons were struggling to beat the Celtics in Boston, The Lions "only" had a 30 year championship drought, and I Latson/Grand River, the NW end of Challis/Grand River, and mand of these subdivisions that are around today all were still undeveloped.
