The Detroit Lions and eggs Benedict

We all are doing what we can to bring the Detroit Lions their first playoff win since 1991.

For years and years, we have awaited a Detroit Lions team worthy of winning a playoff game. Needless to say, we’re all hoping this is the year that finally happens. The 2023-24 Lions have shown us determination, strength, passion, perseverance and most importantly, how to bite kneecaps off. We may be down, but we’re never out.

On Saturday, Alex Reno revealed his superstition and I wanted to share mine ahead of the game.

Eggs Benedict. The Detroit Lions are 8-0 since I’ve ordered eggs Benedict on game day. While Jim Caldwell prepared his 2017 team to finally sweep the Packers for the first time since 1991, I was ordering eggs Benedict. Remember when Golden Tate flipped into the endzone for a game-winning touchdown against the Vikings in overtime? You’re welcome! That was mostly on Tate, but maybe it was also my breakfast.

Do superstitions work for certain? Nobody really knows. But think to yourself, what if they do? Well, this is the time to find out. I think they do, and I’ve finally discovered my power for the Lions. Let’s see if my eggs Benny can go 9-0.

Side note: I’m still searching for powers for the Wings, Tigers and Pistons. I think making my youngest child doing jumping jacks during second period intermission is helping.

The point is, I’m using my superstitious superpower to help the Lions claim victory, and I’m calling on all of you believers to do the same. This is possibly the best Lions team we have ever witnessed. We have the ability to give them the edge and make dreams come true. The Lions need you, the fans need you, and the city of Detroit needs you. Let’s restore the roar once and for all, whether it means eggs Benedict, your favorite Amon-Ra shersey, blue ski masks, sitting on your favorite couch cushion, or wearing your lucky underwear. We can win this!
