Week 17: a little family, mostly football

Why haven't I posted in over a month? Am I channeling Princess? Nope, it just turns out that I have been busy. First we had to clean the house and reorganization of stuff. The my parents and brother came out for a visit. After my parents left, I made sure that I wouldn't have any more children. Then my brother stopped by for one last weekend and now I am here. It was good having family visit. It nice for the extra hands with Miranda. It is nice seeing family.

But what I want to complain about is the Detroit Lions. I sorely wish that they will win today. I don't see it happening. They have not won since their win against the Kansas City Chiefs back before Christmas last year. So now it has been over 12 months since the fans (myself included) have seen your team win. It is different than when the Buccaneers went 24 straight losses since they were an expansion team and had yet to have a firm fan base. You have a large (shrinking) fan base with tons of history. Filling the stands no matter how many losses we have had (minus this year). You have a set of fans that drooling for mediocrity.

So if we lose today, I will buy a Lions jersey to commemorate the occasion. I will make no list of things that the Lions need to do to improve. Why bother? Ford Sr. will do what he always does. He will keep the majority of his front office and grab a weak GM to head the organization. Marinelli will leave as the scapegoat that he desperately wants to be. The curse is a hoax. Its supposed end will not change this organization. Now these are not things I want to happen, just things that are likely to happen.
