Detroit Lions...

So for the first time since 2007 the Lions won 3 games in a row and for the 1st time since 2004, we won 2 in a row on the road. Some may laugh and joke, but for those of us who have remained positive and steadfast in our love for the Lions, today was just what we needed. Our own little Christmas miracle. Down by 10 with less than 5 minutes to go, we force the Fins to punt, then one play to get a TD and an interception on the next drive to get a field goal to tie it followed by another INT for 6 to go up by 7 - all in less then 2 1/2 minutes.

Damn is feels good to be a Lion.

With a win next week, we'd finish at 6-10 and after you count the two games the Bears cheated in, we are 8-8 - good enough to win the division and make the playoffs. But we'll have to settle for watching the Bears get killed in their first game, and a Superbowl victory for the 2011 season.

Go big. Go Lions.

Just wanted to wish everyone a merry christmas. I posted this on fb, but since fb sucks now, I figured I'd post it again. Also, I plan on blogging a lot more in the next week to make up for my lack of doing so in the past month or so.

Scrooged is my favorite Christmas movie and it seriously gets better every year. In a very close second and third are Love Actually and Elf.

Go big.

A Cold Winter...

You know what was nice? About two weeks ago when it was 65 degrees and I was complaining about global warming. You know what is not nice? Today, rolling through the drive-thru at Burger Kind and my windows not going down because they were frozen shut. Opening my door to order fast food is all kinds of sad. Luckily after hitting it a few times, it finally went down (that's what she said).

I've spent most of my life preaching about seasons and how much I love them all, even winter. Well my friends, I'm going to say something that I never thought I'd say: I wouldn't mind moving somewhere warmer. I don't need SoCal or even NorCal, but maybe something a little more moderate in the winter. Maybe North Carolina or just anywhere below 40 degrees latitude. The older I get the worse it is. My knees hurt and my body stiffens and I'm only 28 which leads me to wonder why my parents don't spend winters in India. I suppose they would have to retire to do that, but when I'm their age, you can find me on a beach in Mexico.

Give me two weeks of snow over Christmas and then head back to wherever it is I docked my boat (apparently in the future I'm rich). Anyway, just something to think about as you wrap yourselves up to brave the winter.

As always, go big. I'm out.

The Lions...

I still have faith that we can win some games. Call me crazy but next year I see us going to the Superbowl. Before we get there, we need to shed the stigma associated with us. We're not as bad as people think, but this Simpsons clip kinda hurts.

Anyway, last time we played the Bears we beat them but then they cheated so we lost. Hopefully this weekend they won't change the rules on us.

RIP Leslie Neilson...

Sad news from the weekend. One of the funniest people on Earth passed away. Leslie Neilson is the first person who ever introduced me to wordplay and deadpan comedy. I still remember watching Airplane for the first time and having my socks knocked off. The world is surely a less funny place without him.

I'm out
