ive been a fan of this team since 2001. I never got to see Barry play, Ive never seen a lion playoff birth and Ive never seen a winning season. Ive seen Joey Harrington, Ive seen Rod Marenaili, Ive see Millen and all the number 1 WRs picks and all the dissapointing drafts.
But every year I tune in knowing that the lions will probably lose or find a way to lose.(cant blame me) But this feeling deep deep down in my heart says this games gonna be different, this seasons gonna be different. But year after year game after game that feeling dies a little inside.
So than why watch? Why go threw the heart ache? Ill tell you why, because one day MY LIONS WILL WIN THE SUPERBOWL and that feeling deep deep down will rise like a phoenix from the ashes. A overwhelming crippeling joy will emerse me and i will know the many years of waiting were worth it.
The people that stuck with this team threw all the record losses, and the embarrasment of being the laughing stalk off the league. WILL BE THE ONES LAUGHING AND THAT DAY WILL BE THE PROUDEST DAY that any fan could have, lions or not. How many people can say they stuck with a hopeless team for decades, with all the losses and blackouts ,in a city in desperate need of a good story and a good feeling. THE DAY WILL COME WHEN WE BRING PRIDE TO DETROIT. Hang in guys are day is coming.
I wanna know what you guys will do, when the lions win a close superbowl?
Im gonna pee my pants with joy.
