Forward down the field.

Good morning, Sports Fans. In case you haven't heard, the Lions are 3-0 for the first time since 1980. That's right. I was negative 7 years old the last time it happened.

So dust off your mid-drift cut Lions jersey and get on the bandwagon before it's too late. You don't want to be accused of being a fair-weather fan.

Though to be fair, if you can't say you had season tickets the year they went 0-16 (like some of us did) and attended every single home game with extreme dedication, abandoning all despair and remaining hopeful all the while (like some of us did) then you're still a fair-weather fan. Sorry.

Gooooooooooooooooooooooooooo, Lions!!

Will you follow the yellow brick road, already?!!?

I'm pretty sure all children have obsessive personalities. They pick one movie that fits their style and become so passionate about it they'll watch it eight-thousand times until they know every single line and their mothers are singing "You've got a friend in me" while washing dishes.


I can't say I'm exempt from this rule either. The Wizard of Oz was a Little-Lo-lo fave back in the day. Maybe we find comfort in hearing the same lines over and over and over.

That must be why kids are disobedient: they like hearing their mothers say the same thing over and over and over and over.......
