Nicklas Lidstrom's decision to hang up his skates caught everyone off-guard, even though he left open the possibility for each of the past couple seasons.

This week Big Al and Eno, the man who knows a lot about a lot things, talk Tigers, Pistons, Red Wings and the NFL. We also welcome back Bleacher Report's Adam Biggers for Adam Rants. Adam takes on the latest news on the NCAA investigating Johnny Manziel.
Jhonny Perlata and others involved in the Biogenesis investigation are finally being suspended.
To replace Peralta, the Tigers acquire slick-fielding shortstop Jose Iglesias from the Red Sox as part of a three-way trade.
Iglesias will be the Tigers' long-term shortstop, Peralta moving on in free agency after the season.
The silliy fallout over Iglesias wearing the number one, out of circulation since Lou Whitaker retired.
The Tigers acquire the bullpen arm they desperately neededin Astros' closer Jose Veras.
The Red Wings will retire Nicklas Lidstrom's number five before a game with the Avalanche next season.
The Pistons give up on Brandon Knight as paret of a sign and trade deal with the Bucks for point guard Brandon Jennings.
The Pistons have become a far more interesting to watch team thanks to Joe Dumars' aggressive off season.
The NFL makes ridiculous changes to the Pro Bowl rules trying to generate interest in a boring, unecessary game.
All that plus the Birthday Game and the Jerk of the Week!
Sports talk and discussion with an attitude for the knowledgeable and passionate fan. Lance and Bo discussed the NBA playoff series between Miami and Boston, OKC and San Antonio, and the NBA draft lottery. They also got into a dispute about the legacy of Michael Jordan as the preemiment athletic superstar of all time and discussed the retirement of Niklas Lidstrom from the Detroit Red Wings.
Tonight the Jerks welcome back a favorite guest---former Detroit and New York sportscaster Bob Page!
It's always fun to have the outspoken, knowledgeable Page on; you never know what he might say!
Talking points with Bob:
Stanley Cup Finals (i.e. how the NHL playoffs are so unpredictable; national interest, etc)
Lions off-field behavioral problems
NBA Finals (Good vs. Evil?)
Red Wings after Lidstrom (and they traded Brad Stuart)
After Bob, it's Tigers talk (will the series win in Cincy kick start them?; should people be getting fired?); Lions and their off-season from Hell (arrests); and a little bit of Red Wings (Brad Stuart is the latest d-man to vamoose, having been traded to San Jose).
Of course, there's also "Whose Birthday Is It?" and "Jerk of the Week"!!
