Chris Vannini is a native Michigander who writes about Michigan State and the Detroit Tigers for a few places, including The Only Colors. This means he lives in a place where hockey is a real sport. As a first-grader, he finished second in a pinewood derby race to a kid who broke lightspeed. But he's not bitter, since he got a cut of the space cash.
