Loving the Lions: Fans in downtrodden Detroit believe this could finally be breakout year


From the Washington Post:

ALLEN PARK, Mich. — From fired-up fans in Motor City bars to bookies in Las Vegas, the long downtrodden Detroit Lions have people believing that this could be their breakout season.

Finally.

The Lions closed last season with a four-game winning streak and kicked off this year with an impressive win at Tampa Bay, ratcheting up the buzz for Sunday’s home opener against Kansas City.

“I’ve been a Lions fan for 50 years and I want to live long enough to see them win the Super Bowl — and this might be the year,” 58-year-old Rick Steciak said between sips of beer at Oakwood Grill and Lounge near team headquarters. “People are so pumped up about the Lions like they were when Barry Sanders was playing."
