For the past 39 seasons, the Detroit Pistons have played their home games at the Palace At Auburn Hills, a suburban arena about 30 miles outside Detroit itself. But the Pistons now have a new home at Little Caesar’s Arena in downtown Detroit. Last night, the team played their home opener at their new arena, notching a win against the Charlotte Hornets. And to introduce the team, Detroit’s own Eminem put in a surprise appearance, hyping up the crowd over his own “Lose Yourself.” (He sadly did not introduce the starting lineups, which would’ve been cool.)

I didn’t watch last night’s game, but my colleague Chris DeVille would like me to point out that the crowd was terrible.
