The DSC and its wallpaper also gets the “retro month” treatment. I’ll update both if the Lions advance farther in the playoffs.

The biannual “Retro Month” has returned for the wallpapers. I used a vintage computer style typeface and throwback logos and color schemes for all of the teams (except the Drive, which are brand new and had no options for that) and the Red Wings and Pistons wallpapers also have retro logos for their opponents. I was going to use a different background design for only this month but I could not come up with something satisfactory in time.
Since multiple people have tried to use the DSC as a desktop wallpaper, I made a version of it that is computer friendly. Check it out below!

There’s a new design for this month. I’ve added logos for the Detroit teams for each game. This also enabled me to spell out the full name of their opponents.

Debuting this month is the Grand Rapids Drive, the brand new Detroit Pistons affiliate of the NBA Development League.
It’s back by popular demand.
I will update this wallpaper after every series is completed until a new champion is crowned. I promise, this time.
With the Tigers in the playoffs, expect
a few zero updates!

Counting preseason games, all of the teams on the wallpapers for this month will be playing the majority of their games on the road (62%). The only team to play more home games than away are the Griffins (6 home, 3 away).
If there are additional Red Wings games on TV and/or radio, I will update the DSC with that information.

I’ll update the Red Wings wallpaper if more TV games become available.
Here’s a 2014 season schedule for the Detroit Lions with regular and throwback logos.
I’ve made more tweaks based on last year’s designs. I won’t be adding time or TV information because I don’t want to update these every week.

Football schedule wallpapers for the Detroit Lions, Michigan Wolverines, Michigan State Spartans, Central Michigan Chippewas, Eastern Michigan Eagles, Western Michigan Broncos, Toledo Rockets, and Bowling Green Falcons will be out in a few weeks.
The DSC also gets the “Retro Month” treatment. The Pistons are featured this month due to the NBA Pro Summer League being played in Orlando.

It’s the biannual “Retro Month”. Throwback logos, colors and fonts are used for each team (with the exception of the Loons where none exist). Old school team logos are also used on the Tigers wallpaper.
To improve readability, I’ve removed the background logos from each wallpaper and increased the opacity of the home background colors.
Lots of draft action this month with MLB, the NBA and the NHL participating.

Retro month will be next month.
It’s the first time I’ve had a color DSC available for the beginning of the month and only the Tigers are currently playing. Yep, really should have made these a long time ago.

From now on I’ll be using each opponent’s primary logo (or de facto primary in some cases for the NBA). The logos may have some slight changes to improve visibility (outlines added to the Boston Red Sox, Cleveland Indians and Pittsburgh Pirates logos are examples).
I’ve spent a LOT of time on my template and I feel like I’ve improved it quite a bit. I hope you will feel the same.
Also, I’ve decided to start releasing the wallpapers on the last day of the previous month.
UPDATE (4/14): The Tigers had two games (the 18th and the 20th) bumped to FSD+ because of Red Wings playoff games. The Tigers wallpaper has been updated to reflect this change.
The Detroit Sports Calendar will be released on the last day of the previous month just like the schedule wallpapers.
I should be updating this with Red Wings playoff games soon.
UPDATE (4/13): The Atlantic Division semifinals schedule for the Red Wings and the Bruins has been added. Also, a color version of the DSC is now available as well.
I’ll update the Tigers wallpaper as soon as I can.

I came up with a new wood-based background. This design works without having to use special tinting and it has none of those scary knotholes that can look like eyes. I’ll be sticking with this for a while; I promise. I wasn’t really enthralled with the sport-specific backgrounds.
The Tigers wallpaper has every local TV game available. Radio and out-of-town TV networks that can be received via satellite are on this month’s DSC.
UPDATE (3/3): Sunday’s Red Wings game at New York has been moved from 7:30 PM to 12:30 PM. I have updated the Red Wings wallpaper. Thanks to Brendan in the comments for pointing this out.
UPDATE (3/4): Oh look, another mistake. I had the Tigers playing Minnesota instead of Kansas City on Opening Day. Grab a new wallpaper. Thanks to Matt in the comments for pointing this out.
UPDATE (3/12): Tonight’s Spirit game versus Sault Ste. Marie has been postponed due to the death of Terry Trafford. The game will be made up on Monday at 7:11 PM. The Spirit wallpaper has been updated.
This month’s calendar is filled up thanks to MLB Spring Training being in full force. I added all of the radio and television feeds that I could find for the Tigers. All available radio broadcasts will be on MLB Gameday Audio. A few television games will be carried by the opposition on MASN and SNY so satellite subscribers with a regional sports network package can watch these games live instead of waiting for the MLB Network replays.
UPDATE (3/3): Sunday’s Red Wings game at New York has been moved from 7:30 PM to 12:30 PM. I have updated the DSC. Thanks to Brendan in the comments for pointing this out.
