    Indeed. See him in a Tigers uniform while you can.

    The second paragraph reads like a promo for a brothel.

    Can Motown Sports survive the rebuild?

    I just received an email from a Jim Adducci, who claims to be an investment banker from Conshohocken, and I am contemplating an appropriate response.

    It makes one wonder whether and which of these events caused the other.

    So many levels of blasphemy, I cannot begin to respond. I am generally against the Catholic Inquisition, but this particular profanity deserves thumb screws and worse.

    Can Motown Sports survive the rebuild?

    My boys play organized football and baseball and a little basketball. The policy is "play the sport that is in season," so no fall baseball or spring football or anything like that. I will admit to being paranoid of burn out. The 13-year-old has played travel baseball for the last couple of seasons and enjoyed it. That said, once when he was scheduled to pitch, I got an odd call from a Toledo number. I did not recognize the voice, but the message was very clear: your boy thows the game against Sleepy Hollow U-14 tonight and no one gets hurt. Wisely, my boy was a little wild, and Sleep Hollow won. No problems. Earlier this fall, I received another mysterious call from Toledo asking about injuries on my 9-year-old's football team. I provided the information, and there were no problems. We have adopted a new policy of not answering calls from Toledo prior to youth athletic events.

    I respond in the alternative: Am I back in law school? (Socratic method allusion) or Inquiring minds want to know.

    Agreed re: the drugs, but I believe that Lewicki concluded (correctly) that Toledo is just not big enough with Adduci back in town. I also seriously doubt that Lewicki's relocation represents an attempt to "go national." Adduci doesn't need the headaches. Sure, he'll work with Lewicki from time to time, but more out of convenience rather than to further a large scale, interstate conspiracy. Who wants to pay off the FBI AND the local Toledo cops? That adds up fast.

    It really depends on your perspective, I suppose.
