Valentine's Day Michigan Love Links

Michigan Expats - News - See All News

Happy Valentine's Day Michiganders and Expats. Hopefully here are a few links, pictures, and videos to help brighten your day.

Forget red roses or red wine on Valentine's Day today. The Detroit Red Wings host the Dallas Stars at Joe Louis Arena tonight with a chance to set a new NHL record of consistent home victories at 21. Let's Go Red Wings! Goalie Joey MacDonald has been fantastic coming up to help the Wings with Jimmy Howard out and has done it with his awesome Mackinac Bridge inspired helmet.

A Michigan Expat is making headlines today: Kate Upton, born in St. Joseph, is on the cover of this year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue that hits newsstands today. The coveted cover spot comes just one year after Upton made her debut in the issue and earned SI swimsuit rookie of the year honors. Is it too much to ask for SI and Kate to collaborate and shoot photos for next year's issue at a picturesque Michigan spot? Sleeping Bear Dunes perhaps? You can see more of Kate's SI photos, here.

Yesterday, I posted my recap of the 3rd Annual Traverse City Winter Microbrew and Music Festival. For more coverage, check out I'm a Beer Hound and MittenBrew's respective recaps.

Looking for some romantic love songs by Michigan artists to listen to this Valentine's Day. Listen to the podcast Mr. Sig and I put together a year ago in Michigan Expats podcast #23. Speaking of love songs, after the jump, check out the love song one Michigan fan wrote about Wolverine QB, Denard Robinson.

First, more Kate Upton. Yes, we have more Kate Upton with a Justin Verlander bonus. Check out the reigning AL CY Young and MVP winner of the Detroit Tigers with the Michigan born SI Swimsuit cover model in an ad for MLB 2K12.

Special Valentine's Day bonus video after the jump.

Nothing says Valentine's Day than a grown man singing a love song to a male athlete.

That's all folks. Have a happy Valentine's Day with some you love and hopefully some Michigan beer, wine, or desserts.
