Post HARD CORE FOOTBALL FANS
I have lived in Florida long enough to qualify as a " cracker " < 53 years >.
My root, however, lie in Michigan and my home town, Detroit . We lived on
Lake St. Clair and virtually everything in sports was indelibly etched in that
young mind. Everything meant Michigan, Michigan State, Lions, Tigers, Red
Wings, and Pistons !
That still holds True today. There is no other explanation for " Hard Core
Fan " than to still proclaim your soul as a Lions fan in the midst of those
who smirk. " They " are all pulling for Super Bowl winners past and present.
You tend to go from religious believer to ''Ugghhh, not again '' !
New stadium FF, new uniform, .... but just another LOSING YEAR from Mr.
Ford's tax write-off.
Who would believe it is so difficult to win the North Division ? Jeeeez,forget
that.... what about a ' Wild Card ' spot ?
Even THAT is asking for a miracle. Not that anyone really cares, but I will be
pushing up daisies before the Lions have a winning team. No joke .
You can take the Lion out of the jungle .... but he NEVER stops being a LION .
And you know: THERE IS NOTHING LIKE THE GAME OF FOOTBALL, on
Saturday, Sunday, Monday night, or Thanksgiving Day ! God Bless that
struggling crew !
GO LIONS

I live over here in the Tampa area and left Michigan in 77.. I still remain as a Tigers/Pistons/Wings/and Lion fan but only lived in Florida since 99 and not classified as a "Cracker" yet. I feel your pain!!! watching the Bucs go to the SB was just too hard to take..

Go Lions

Post Pathetic
or very disheartening at the least.
WHEN IS IT GOING TO END ? Just about every team has at least made the
playoffs a few times.
Personally Ford should let hard core Lion fans own and operate our team.
Its yet another thing I doubt will come to pass. The small town of Green
Bay has produced plenty of winning seasons for the PACK and their fair
share of Super Bowl Championships. That speaks volumes to me !
