When did you become a fan?

 

I thought it would be cool if we shared some stories about how we became fans of the Detroit Lions. Maybe it happend over time, or maybe there was a special moment in your life that you can look back on and say "thats where it started"...

When did you become a fan of the Detroit Lions?

There were two times in my life that really came together before I started following the Lions. The first one: Thanksgiving! My entire family (uncles, aunts, cousins, grandma's grandpa mom dad, ect ) would get together on Thanksgiving and watch the Lions play. It brings back memories of seeing my whole family together, which is a lot harder to do as everyone gets older. 

 

My second one would definitely be the 0-16 season. I was one of the people that were rooting for the Lions to make history by going winless. But it wasnt because i wanted to see them be completely pathetic, it was because I wanted to see them become the greatest turnaround story in sports history. 

 

Thats my story of fanhood....Whats yours?
