First, Go Lions! Some people are calling me a band wagon fan just because I never talked about the Lions before they started to do well (Except in hilarious jokes of course) That is TOTALLY inaccurate! I think this point is best made by giving you a sample of every conversation I've ever had with a person who asked what my favorite team was.
Random Idiot: Who's your NFL team?
Me: The Lions
Random Idiot: What do you think about (insert NFL player, rule or game here)
Me: I don't know. I don't watch Pro Football.
Random Idiot: What? Why?
Me: I just told you! I'm I Lions fan!
THIS IS WHAT I PICTURE THE "RANDOM IDIOT" IN THIS SCENARIO LOOKING LIKE
NOTICE THAT HE IS A COLTS FANS. MOST COLTS FANS ARE IDIOTS. I LIVED IN INDIANA FOR 5 YEARS. TRUST ME ON THIS.
You see, since the Lions have always.....how can I put this delicatly?....Sucked in the past, it was just too painfull to turn the TV on Sunday. BUT, I've never rooted for another team. I was so dedicated to the Lions that I would rather give up on the sport than choose another team to follow.
That is why I say, I am NOT a band wagon Lions fan. I'm a band wagon NFL fan! And I think that a lot of people out there are in the same boat.
