Well another Sunday, another episode of "you can't make us win" at the Silverdome/ Ford Field O' Dome. Locations, years, coaches and quarterbacks are all meaningless distractions that comprise the undefinable blur marketed as the Lions.
Officially, I quit rooting for them about 1985. But I must confess they are still my team. I know it's twisted, but I love the way they deliver. They give me what I'm expecting every time I invest three hours of my Sunday couch time.
I'm there to see my team do ANYTHING they can to not win a game. Today, once again I witnessed a masterpiece painted on the big green canvas. My guys unwittingly stumbled into a come-from-way-behind 1-point lead with seven minutes left in the game.
For a guy that is used to losing by missed field goals or opposing team's field goals in the last five seconds of the game, this was an amazing display of determination to deliver what I expected. They just never dissapoint
Thank you Lions! Thank you Matt Milen. See you next week.
