"Joining me virtually is Fletcher sharp he is. Regular sports correspondent for us, and of course, we're GONNA. Talk about something that is near and dear to both of our hearts soccer specifically we're GONNA START WITH DETROIT CITY F C football fletch seems to be a bit of a disappointing inaugural season finale on multiple levels to a degree. Yeah. So I was there covering this weekend and Detroit cities women's side weather first game in club history first game at home against lansing united by the tuned to two to one. They got early goal from William Lucas like twenty twenty. Five Yard rocket the quarter amazing shot lanting clawed back with another goal. Then late, I feel bad because it's kind of like their first game for the summer they're playing more of their players get rhythm and both their goalkeepers had really good games like the eighty first eighty second minute. Their goalie had a past come back to her instead of just kicking it out and getting rid of it. She tried to trap it at bounced off her foot funny and then Detroit forwards or take it Kenna white specifically was there To Take it and scoop it into the back of the net for Detroit's first when they advanced to play mid west united who they played earlier loss three to one they lost again the final three to one to me the difference in this game though the first Game Day looked hapless, they were trying their best but you could tell it didn't really understand how to play each other yet whereas Midwest that was their third game this game it stayed really tight until late midwest pulled away later. So like even when. Midwest got ahead three one. A Detroit was still keeping the game close. They were still getting good shots still getting pressure. It's just a bit less because at that point mid West took over but I'd say it's a a good season for them overall even though they finished one owen into because it got those players deploy each other teams basically stay the same for next summer or less a major things happened like say Marta Brazilian superstar Marker decided that she's a free agent wants come live in the mid West Lake Detroit. Happens accurate. Yes. They'd add five time women's Clare the martyred of their roster but like aside from that, the team should relatively stay the same. So it gets them a year to play with each other could almost these girls don't go to the school or if they're professionals or their mothers, they have other things you're doing or not around each other all the time, but it gives them a chance to play together introduce themselves to each other. So next summer comes you have some sort of groundwork with people they're considering. The Midwest United won their first game of the UW showcase nine nothing against a Lavonia city people thought Detroit were in for a little bit more trouble. So the fact that they were able to hold their own show that in a few years will probably be catch west I don't think they'll be able to do it next year. I. could be wrong but New Orleans about these things but there's there's a good chance like in the next two, three years, they could become the same level, Kim caliber team well they. Don't call the sports pundit for nothing I mean but in all seriousness one thing I I was kind of disappointed about specifically is just the link this season just because of covid nineteen, it was just so truncated this year and we really didn't get as much of a chance as I think the fans would have loved to see of these women players well for the people who don't understand why the seasons. So short number one covid was the reason why I wish I don't. WanNa undersell that at all because that's Very, important, but number two, would you stab with a Detroit men's team near the end of the season? Because a lot of their players were college players in the NPS L. colleges would request their players come back to campus. So when a college requests their player back there done typically bigger colleges, Michigan Michigan State Syracuse Notre, Dame etc. When they request player like bets it and normally the really good teams a request replays back soon as possible if it's if practice can start, may I they want their kid back April thirtieth? Smaller schools. Say Your schoolcraft Adrian Schools not small and you know what they offer but small compared relatively dog schools. Those schools typically have more leeway. There is a really good example that involves Detroit two years ago they played against Midland Odessa who beat them in the final at key worth actually in the regional final and Midland. Odessa. Soon, after that game pad seventeen of their roster, twenty three players have to go back to school. So they had to quickly signed players and hope that the smaller schools let their kids stay on for a bit longer than they did and they got to the final they got beat very badly because they're using players who never played with the players before. That's what happened here. dcfs's Women's team probably would've wanted to play a few more games just to get their feet wet but for example, Lillian Lucas who scored the first goal against Lansing right after the game she's like this is really great and the next day Boom Illinois wants me to come back. So I have to go. So that was the end of her summer right there one game. So it kind of makes you a little sad but also can make you a little bit happy because it gives you a chance to learn. More of the roster you might know who you're stars who's the person who's going to back up your star maybe takeover for she's unavailable to play. So it really shows how deep your roster can be for sure now what's up with the men's team men have the nieces showcase this weekend, which is Kinda weird because they're not playing Nisa teams playing old rivals. If you follow Detroit from their early years, you've probably heard of something called the Rust Belt Derby I do remember that I used to go to games when they were overcast It was between Detroit City C Blitzer FC Buffalo and the royals of AFC CLEVELAND AFC Cleveland folded because they couldn't pay the league fees, which is odd because they're the league team but the players really really wanted to play and decided to form SC Cleveland, which is basically the same people acceptance at purple. THEIR ORANGE PEOPLE BE FAMILIAR AS SAP Cleveland beat Detroit their last year in the CSL in felony kicks, which was very devastating for everybody involved very. Feisty game both teams played very hard but you would have hoped dry put them away I. Guess it's a regional thing. They're a bunch of spaw three team tournaments involving one professional team from NASA at least one and like two amateur teams. It's good for the oldest person because it brings you back to the Rust Belt Derby those be competing for that. Obviously. I think they retired it. But yeah, the men are back Friday seven thirty, they play Cleveland. And they play se Buffalo Sunday at three PM. There will be no fans for this correct correct. Although I'm sure northern Gardell find a way to get there smoking robot in. So when goals get score, they can remotely released smoke bounds from a supporter side i. saw that that was absolutely awesome on twitter for the one that you think you saw that delayed the game. No, they're actually on the wall there on the wall they released a smoke bomb from the wall as hung chief Oh and then they got down. Normally when they released smoke, it goes across the field. So it's like fine. They'll normally release smoke the vertical way because when the wind blows, it just carries it all the way down the field because presser. Now in those nice sweets on the line that they made out of the train cars, it's went right into the press box. WELL IF ANYTHING DETROIT CITY F C is colorful fletch. Thank you so much. You can follow such a sharp at Saint Empty W on twitter..

"DETROIT CITY AFC's women's team is playing their first. Ever match this Friday July seventeenth in grand rapids as we do with all things, sports ball joining us as Fletcher sharp good to see you. Thanks for having me absolutely all right, so women's team at this level is a big deal in the United States. The soccer is still something that is growing in this country. How long has has the road been to make Friday happen for this team I know Detroit city. The last major club in the state of Michigan to have a women's team I know Grand Rapids FC Ann Arbor. An lansing all teams in two, thousand, sixteen, two, thousand, seventeen, so when they started up and start competing in the WS, which is the United Soccer League second in the soccer. Pyramid of the US. A lot of the fans were like. Hey, it's our time ago. Soccer team for Detroit every offseason. They announced something big about to happen. People kept thinking. Those women seem, and it was something else. That was equally good, but not as exciting as women's team so far this year to happen as great. Unfortunately there season's been cut due to the pandemic curling around, but the fact that they're able to get something up. Is it nice and it's going to be pretty historic day to see women routes it up I'm glad to hear. Hear that people are really excited about this, so let's get into the details. who were they playing? And why is this game to watch? They're playing Midwest, united, F C Midwest United. F C was founded in two thousand sixteen under Grand Rapids FC it was women's side. Think about a year or two ago Midwest United acquired them in the Midwest United. See they're still partnered with great rapid. Just a name change is important because in the four to five years. The League has been around, but you ws that five different champions one of them. Was Midwest United F C so they're are very formidable team within the region I. Don't WanNa say a women's Detroit city of see like mens side, but like they seem to draw a lot of people from all around to come and play for them all right so for people who might not be familiar with all of this. Let's take a look into the future. Can you tell me what is this league What's it like? What are they playing for I actually here? One of the teams has a pretty historic a nearby field. It's kind of like a hate to use this term, but. But it's Kinda I. Don't really have a better way to explain it. It's kind of like the women's version of IMP. ESL The league dcfs. He just left where it's not professional, but it may be a step above semi professional where you have players who named you might have recognized in college who were just looking for a chance to like? Get a bump up. Players who are in college who are really good, but we need the summer home just to hone their skills or just players from small colleges just look development more glory, so it's Kinda in the same vein where they compete. For a trophy to win the championship, and that's essentially it. It's not like they win and Europe they go up and promotion. You continue to compete at this level in kind of just here to your point about the historic field. There is a team known as AFC quirk. Counter Cork on AFC to my knowledge. AFC STANDS FOR FANS, club or association. Football Club which is something. That's really big. An England to differentiate from just having an FC or united and courtown AFC, plays at the Old Tiger Stadium site, which is now baseball field, but can be used to host soccer gins, so it's pretty nice. Be playing in especially when a lot of danger playing in high school or little art fields, so to have a field like that be someone told the other pretty good indication of how seriously something they're taking it for sure are so finally I got. Got Ask before let you go. Are there any concerns about Corona Virus How are they dealing with? That is something that is on the top of their minds to a degree from A to my knowledge. Yes, that's the reason why the League did not play all the way through, because technically looking at Detroit cities initial schedule, their season was supposed to be near the end right now, so they're not gonNA. Play their full schedule out of obviously but. But. They're going to be playing a little bit showcase involving grand rapids. Sec Midwest united playing now. Courtown AFC and Lansing United Women's side it. They're taking it seriously enough to where their leading players play. I'm not really certain if they're going to allow fans to watch these Games, personally, I don't think that should because I feel like not only. Is it not safe for the fans is also not safe from the players, especially people first row, and also it's. It's GONNA be hot. You don't want them sitting there in their masks for that long in that type of heat, even though masks are not cutting off circulation, it's probably gonNA be really uncomfortable. You don't WanNa make something go through that I know Detroit city planned on streaming all their games. I don't know if that includes the away games, but they plan on streaming all their games with their new partnership. You're have coming on the TV twenty so. Their home game coming up next week. They are streaming it that way. People can see and don't have to risk going to gain if they're allowed to themselves for sure, thanks flach. Thanks for having me. You can follow Fletcher at Saint Fd W. on twitter. Joining me virtually is Erica Owens. She is the founder of Frugal on the fly. They're doing some interesting stuff in the community and I wanted to talk to her Erica. Welcome to your first time on daily Detroit cow, and absolutely so first off. Let's set a baseline. What exactly is frugal on the fly? Because you know things, come and go, but it's something that's kind of gotten my attention. Because you know especially people who listen to this show, they're always looking for deals and ways to enjoy the city or their community in well without emptying out all of their pocketbooks yeah, so. So taking advantage of free into things as my jam, so couple years ago is started on the fly as a hub for people to find free and cheap things to do in the Metro Detroit area. Most of it focuses on stem lots in the arts, as well and concerts to print things like that and a lot of them are family friendly, but a lot of followers of have don't have children. Because a lot of these things are public events, they might yet da or different museums, and so everyone is welcome I'm big on like interesting date nights. You know maybe like A. Charity event or something like that pay at the door. Food and drinks are included and a great way to all out and be out for the night. One of the things, though with this whole pandemic thing is that well. There's a lot less going out and a lot more things that need to be done still around the community so I understand that you have found a way into helping out the community with food with a weekly distribution in Hamtramck. Now how did that start? It was really someone that. That I. knew was listening to someone else over here in conversation about food rescue us, and Detroit does have a chapter named recently got a grant from the USDA to pay farmers for their produce in it would be delivered by semi to TC f.

"Fletcher Sharp, man Weird Year and sportsman. Lot of things in limbo. Lot of uncertainty about we've got no NBA The major league baseball season's been a big nothing burger, but there's news with Detroit City C it looks like both the men's and the inaugural women's team are gonNA. See some action. Tell us what you know I know. The men's steamed recently signed up for Amateur Cup with a lot of other teams throughout the entire country. It's kind of like a short small, three or fourteen based tournament where you play in your region. If you win, you move onto the next part. Detroit's region is going to include a trade city of see. CLEVELAND SC WE SPEAK FC Cleveland. And FC Buffalo, so it's really it's going to be the rust belt. Derby which used to be a thing that Detroit used to plan where IT'D BE DETROIT FC Cleveland when they were the royals and FC Buffalo back when they really went by the Blitzer 'cause. They're like really trying to get wolf. Blitzer, to be a fan of the team. And I think the last winter. The Rust Belt Derby actually was Detroit so it's a chance to kind of. Keep the belt which I think is a good idea just to integrate professional teams have semi professional teams back together. Are they just kind of weird that you're GONNA have a lot of professional teams. Pointing it's much amateur teams, and like I feel like. If. You're just going to go off paper like the freshman team should win all those matchups, but I think just a good idea overall just to get players out playing, and you know doing stuff together so. And how about the women's team? They've had their regular season. their inaugural regular season cancelled because of nineteen, but now there's a showcase tournament for the United Women's soccer right correct the heavy united women's soccer showcase and I know Michigan Teams are Detroit. City F C. The have lansing united back from the dead. They have been west United, which is grand rapids FCC. Women's team and they have Lavonia City F. C women seen which I did not know actually how to women's team. So that's good here. that a lot of teams are not branching out to have women seem as well especially with the rabid fan base who to see representation on the field as well as in the. The stands as well as in the front office. So it's good to see that they're going to finally get something going I know that the girls have started practicing think about few weeks ago I know they named a captain and Syracuse they named a few their star player. Keep an eye on all know. The coach has been pretty eager to get out there and actually play against the competition besides just the players. Women have been chomping at the bit. They've actually gone to practice with them inside so like it's been really good to see kind of mixed practices when you can. I'm excited just to see football. That's not on television in some other country, so yes, so the big question is what do we know about whether or not? Fans are going to be allowed into key worth to watch the action as of now. There's been really no word, but considering that the state is Kinda shutdown again I would really feel like that. They should not have fans in the stands and. Of sees fans are kind of bummed out to hear something like that especially when there's going to be seven thousand eight thousand people trying to show up and watch a game especially when they've been really trying to see their own team especially when they've been really behind the whole idea of having women's soccer at the same place as men's soccer. But the same vein I feel to keep people safe, and not have people get sick and have other things happen. They need to like have them watch from. From a distance if it means wd, twenty needs delays. Set up a deal where they can stream. These gains well do that if it means people need to like, have people use periscope or something and watch people take pictures and you know transcribe, whatever's happening sure, but in person is not the way to go to many people to close of area. If one person's sick, then fifty people sick, and that's how that branches out of a whole Harper's bars. Keith. We don't want that at all. So Fletcher Man I mean. You're a professional sports journalists. You know this is affecting your livelihood, but I'm hearing. You say basically that you're not eager to see sports. Come back in right now. Is that right I? Really would appreciate sports coming back in and get past. That could keep people safe and also keep me. Me Able to pay rent on time. By the same vein I don't WanNa, make money, and then potentially like be sick and have things happen like I understand that this is a national thing and yes, people have their own opinions, but I feel like. If you have one sick person around a bunch of other healthy people, they can also become sick person. And like there's really no need to risk something that in a way is while to job for these athletes. It's a pleasure for everybody else. You don't need to risk your own health just to go watch a game for something. If you really need to watch the game watch on television, I think having these people show up and massive massive groups can be a problem for example they molest. FC Dallas entered into the MLS bubble, which is currently in Orlando Florida with a bunch of illegals, and before they got to Florida I know Texas at a very high covid rate for they got to Florida. They had zero confirmed cases. They got to Florida it within like a day and a half they had nine confirmed cases why no? The Orlando Pride F C. C Women's team. If the NWF `self for they women's restart tournament had zero cases after the first you know. Couple of practices for the younger players wanted to come out, and they want to go to the bars and hang out the next time. I got tested I think it was thirteen or fourteen combine cases nine players in like four or five staff. Basketball players who were showing up to the bubble in Orlando who are like Hey it's between bringing my kids in my elderly parents and mother family into this bubble for a month or going to see my family at restaurants to see my family and not have them get sick, so I feel like while it's great that we have sports coming back. Back to a degree I think it's better to be safe and make sure that we're all K- because getting a week of sports coming back, and then all of a sudden we have a skyrocketing of cases is not really a win in my book. Yeah, I, guess it's comes down to priorities fletcher sharp good man. Thanks so much. Thanks for having me. And that'll do it for today show. Thank you so much for listening. Thanks to spend Gustafson Karen Davis and Fletcher, Sharp for their help today as well as Cheyenne, no Sereni behind the scenes. Who helped? Edit this show I'm jareth days. Take care of each other, and we will get through this together. Talk With You tomorrow..

"It was everything seeming. Surreal in like we ever remember a hard foul he put in. Ben Ben Push them and all of that happened and just watching it. You're kind of like all right. Well this looks almost like a play like this can't be actually real bright and I remember looking up and seeing the Beer Cup get like as Ford hit runner test in my head. We're all like Oh my God like that actually happened and my biggest most break memory was a NBA dunk champion in two thousand. Four hundred Don champion Fred. Jones in Indiana Pacers. I remember him hopping in the stands trying to fight someone after watching Stephen Jackson. Throw some haymakers remember Ben whilst brother like just completely picking him up throwing him down Fred Jones disappeared. He disappeared. Good three minutes Beaten up and just like I. It stunned me. I remember runner tasks when he left when he got into his A. D. Locker Room. Stephen Jackson said that Ronald Jesuits or we get in trouble. I remember leaving the Palace of my father like will this even be on. TV like this seems like it's going to be forgotten about and I got home literally every channel SPN Fox sports it's CNN MS album or like this happened in Auburn Hills. It was it was just crazy to see like I was there. I literally saw this with my own eyes. Almost they're yeah as a kid. I almost threw a cup. My father grabbed me and he was like we. Don't we don't do that you. And that was it. Young Fletcher learns about the vitality Galaxy of The modern news media and the Internet. I really wish I hadn't done it because I would've gotten a nice collectible cup out of it but since I had to drop the COP entirely the Lost Out in a nice little memory that night. Yeah absolutely all right. Let's shift gears really quick little bit of soccer news involving a local club Lavonia city Fletcher. What happened there? They they participated in the US. Open Cup yeah so the. US Open cut for those. Who Don't know is probably one of the best sports tournaments in the US? It's one of the few chances centers promotion relegation that allows an amateur teams to play against professional teams before they have the. US Open Cup proper. which is the actual tournament? They have the qualification rounds where a local leagues teams from Other nationally didn't qualify through the League. They get a chance to play through playing games gonNA play against each other to see you qualifies so this year. They cut the qualification round. Short at the third round so gover won their third round games would be qualified for the actual tournament. Ornament Michigan has had a few qualifiers over the years if at Detroit city of C.. ANC and Arbor Lansing United back when they were saying Atlantic night for the one year that they were around and etc but they haven't had a US Open US Open Cup qualifier from the qualification round. In a very very long time. I think like the early eighties late Seventies. So you say when we went to Louisiana play against the Louisiana crew who are a forgot which league. They're part of it but I do know that they have uh major league backing. So they're they're like a feeder group to a major league team. I forgot which one do but They law lunacy. Lost in a heartbreaking one a One nothing in our late D K. I don't know too much about the city. I do know that. They are very active on twitter. They very much want you to tweet re tweet and share everything they post. They are so far well respected within the community A lot of people seem to be let down that they lost. Livonia is big soccer community. I know this from back when I was you. You know coming up playing Travel soccer a lot of the And high school soccer as well. A lot of the clubs in Livonia were very good. I know that They are going to get all the. Es L. Season they might potentially be switching to a bigger league. We don't know I'll when I know I'll be sure to let everyone else know. But yeah unfortunate for them for them to lose so so the US Open in Cup next round. They're only be one Michigan team to represent the state and let me Detroit City of see as ASEAN Arbor would have qualified but because they switch leagues There's a rule in the US. Open COP if you switched from one league to another no matter how well you did you're not eligible for the Cup so arbor switched from NPS sell to the US l.. Leak to you are now eligible to play sad. So everyone can refer Detroit city to represent the state super. Well all right finally Fletcher. Before we let you go. What's what's this about like some kind of six degrees of separation from people magazine's sexiest man alive while the Pistons Game? Friday Atlanta Hawks. Yeah I got to meet one of my journalism. Idols Andre Aldridge who worked for NBA TV. Currently does some play by play for the Hawks. The following night Andre Aldridge went it back to Atlanta to cover a hawks game where he met Egypt's Alba and they relate. They talked ten interview.
