Boston greets you with its cute little ducklings. Philadelphia has a giant clothespin and the LOVE sculpture. Minneapolis is proud of their giant spoon.
Detroit? Well, Detroit wants to punch you in the face.
Exploring the Motor City before the Red Sox-Tigers playoff game, Steve and Lindsay decided to get intimate with boxing legend Joe Louis’ knuckles.
Lindsay thinks Joe’s fists are amusing. In 1938, German heavyweight champion Max Schmeling wasn’t laughing.
All Smiles: Lindsay shows why boxing is sometimes called the "Sweet Science."
