DETROIT FREE PRESS - Sports are a distraction from the insanity of the real world.

In Detroit, the insanity-o-meter has been reading "tilt" as city leaders have been behaving like a drowning man intent on thrashing about and dragging their would-be rescuer down with them. The insanity peaked earlier this week when it appeared that the Detroit City Council might fail to approve a consent agreement that would head off the appointment of an emergency manager.

And, as if on cue, the baseball season begins to provide a much-needed, if only temporary, distraction from the insanity that has engulfed our city in recent months.

Enjoy the distraction. We've earned it.

Dan Harland and Brent Ashcroft are at the game and will have more on WZZM 13 News at 6:00pm.
