from Gregg Krupa of the Detroit News,
Among those who gathered early Friday at Little Caesars Arena to pay their respects to Ted Lindsay, Michael Klug talked about the man more than the hockey player.
“My dad was of the generation of Ted Lindsay,” said Klug, of Wyandotte. “I learned about him later on, when I found out about the movie ‘Net Worth’ and what he did for the players union and things like that. I kind of became a fan of his.
“Then I was aware of the work he did in Detroit, that he was still around and that he was a great humanitarian.
“And so, I had the time, today,” said the schoolteacher. “And I’m here to pay my respects.”
