Starbucks before games?

I was sitting in Starbucks in Northville when Nicklas Lidstrom and Tomas Holmstrom walked in at around 4:30 Thursday. I am not certain what they ordered, but they both walked out with something.

Is this standard? Starbucks before games?

Anyway, as much as the little kid in me wanted to run up and wish the guys good luck against the Calgary Flames, I let them keep a low profile and business appeal. I kept the iPhone camera on the table too. I respect these guys too much.

I hope they both ordered red eyes - my drink of choice. It would help support my theory that caffeine is good before hockey games.

Shoot, I've been back in Metro Detroit for less than two weeks and already I had a Wings sighting. This was much cooler than any of my celebrity sightings in LA.


  1. Why is my Starbucks not in Northville? I would love to make coffee for them. We had a McCarty sighting at my store once, but I wasn't there :\

    I could see Nick ordering a red eye or maybe just a grande bold. Homer would get something more out there, like a dirty chai with peppermint. Something weird.

  2. Haha ... Homer would. Well, it looks like the coffee helped Nick tonight.
