On Sunday, we went to Ford Field in Detroit for the Lions season-ending loss against the Dallas Cowboys. Yeah, they played hard. Yeah, they finally uitlized T.J. Duckett. Yeah, Kitna didn't fumble and he only had one pick. Yeah, the Lions secondary virtually immobilized the great T.O. But when the chips were down in the fourth quarter, Hansen muffed a field goal and a live fumble couldn't be fallen upon to change possesion and win the game. No surprises here... Another losing season will be on the books for The Roar.
On the bright side, we did score some sweet field passes (thank you Ford Field's Tom Lewand!) for pre-game and we also had some sweet suite passes so we could fly between our regular seats and the box. Some kid wearing a Notre Dame sweatshirt got all excited during the game and thought it would be a good idea to rub my head. I told him that he shouldn't do that to a grown man that he doesn't know.
Yes, of course I'll be here next year to watch the Lions with a small rice-grain of hope in my heart. And yes, again I will be the sucker. Wait, I live in NY too... GO GIANTS!!!
