Being a Detroit Lions fan is painful. It’s hard work. It’s a disease. Ever since Barry Sanders retired after the 1998 season, the Lions have played 239 regular season and playoff games to date. Throw in another 50-some preseason games in on top of that.
At three hours a game (on the low end), you’re looking at roughly 900 hours wasted watching Lions football. What has it amounted to? This video of Joe Lionsfan, created by The Second City pretty much sums it up.
Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson are doing their part to squash my next business idea is going – a brewery right outside Ford Field.
