My fiancee´ is driving back with her family after spending a week camping outside of Montreal. She just sent me a text saying she tried stopping at 2 gas stations and Wal-Mart while passing through Michigan in an effort to surprise me with some Lions gear, but she was striking out. See, we recently moved to Southwest Florida so now our merchandise selection is pretty limited to Dolphins, Bucs, and Jags. I told her that was sweet, and she certainly gets big points for trying. The girl gets double points, however, because her family is from outside of Chicago (Rockford represent!) and that means she just made an RV full of Bears fans stop 3 times to look for Lions gear. Nice.
With Preseason in full swing, I'd like to read other POD tales of epic fandom. Share away!
