    Will you watch the USFL in Detroit?; Tom Brady to the Lions?; Does Detroit City need a 10-goal scorer?

    Three topics to talk about today as we get into sports around Metro Detroit. First, the USFL made a big splash with the media at their announcement at Ford Field. The opposite-season football league has gotten some attention with the Michigan Panthers and Philadelphia Stars playing in the motor city, and metro Detroit is American football crazy. So will you watch? Will it be a thing? Then, Mike Florio suggested Tom Brady for the Lions. Do we want to be the divorced dad's rebound team? And finally, we wrestle with a ranking about offseason progress by John Morrissey of USLTactics putting DCFC in not the best light; and answer if we think Detroit City needs a ten goal scorer to make the offense work, or can it be done by committee.

    Despite the flashy headlines and ribbon cuttings of Whole Foods, Rivertown Market and other — the overall number of full service grocery stores in Detroit is actually on the decline. We don't have enough square footage of grocery store to serve our population, and there's a rise of dollar store alternative that don't provide fresh food. Although not technically a food desert, many Detroiters are food insecure and underserved. There's also a rise of dollar stores that don't offer fresh food. Residents routinely head to the suburbs to meet their needs, sending hundreds of millions of dollars out of the city. We also get into ways people are working on this problem, including the work of the Detroit Food Policy Council. Our guest is Amy Kuras to talk about it.
