Sports will have a role in any renaissance. The motto “The city that can’t pay its bills, but can play ball” isn’t exactly what you want to see on Welcome to Detroit signs. But it speaks to how a city clamoring for anything positive can use its valuable sports identity as a means for reminding everyone that Detroit won’t timidly crawl into a corner and fade from existence.
