“Champions Day! Only one city in the whole world could hold such a holiday as Detroit is celebrating today. Detroit, the City of Champions! Detroit, the Capitol of the sports world.”

In today’s special episode Jamie and Charles (with a little help from Sam) discuss all things Champions Day, on location at the Detroit Historical Museum.
