Bringing together stories of athletic heroics, hard-fought rivalries, memorable characters and unforgettable moments, Michigan Sports Trivia combines the quirky, the comical and the unusual: * Detroit Tigers outfielder Gate Brown once slid into second base with a hot dog in his pocket * Fans of the Detroit Red Wings have made a tradition out of throwing an octopus on the ice for good luck during playoff games * The University of Michigan boasts three Heisman Trophy winners and a lineman named Gerald Ford who became President of the United States * And more.

Arpon Basu had said since the age of eight that he would one day make the National Hockey League. Any chance of that happening, came to a crashing halt when, at 15 when he realized he was completely devoid of any talent. He earned a graduate journalism degree from Concordia University and went straight to a sports-writing job with the Canadian Press. The first time he walked into the Montréal Canadiens dressing room as a giddy cub reporter, Basu nearly fell over as it dawned on him that, despite his ineptitude on the ice, he had in fact been telling the truth as a dreamy-eyed eight-year-old.Basu covers sports for the Canadian Press in Montréal and writes a weekly sports column for the Montréal Gazette. He is also editor of Montréal’s South Shore, The St-Lambert Journal.
