Hossa Now The Other Guy

from Michael Rosenberg of the Detroit Free Press,

In sports, people want lightning rods. Winning is more fun if you really want the other guy to lose. To Wings fans, Marian Hossa just became the Other Guy.

Professional sports rivalries ebb and flow more than college or high school rivalries. A Michigan State-Michigan football game always will feel special, no matter how good the teams are, but Lions-Packers is only truly huge if one of the teams is trying to go 0-16.

Red Wings-Blackhawks is now the biggest pro sports rivalry for any Detroit team. You have two Original Six teams who just faced each other in the conference finals and should battle for division and conference supremacy for the next five years. They are ancient and modern rivals.
