Up In Smoke

Detroit is on fire! No, it's not Opening Day heat from Verlander's arm; it's coming from Belle Isle. Clouds of smoke are expected today as the city conducts a controlled burn near the Belle Isle Nature Zoo and the golf course to eradicate some invasive plants. Hm. We wonder if that excuse can be repurposed with narcotics officers. "Officer, I had to smoke this to eradicate the plant." Well, happy opening day substance abusing (your choice) to all you hooligans that had the day off. [The Detroit News]
