During the national anthem prior to yesterday’s Lions-Packers game, the camera landed on Lions DL Kyle Vanden Bosch, and an entire nation shivered in terror at the sight of his blood red eyes.  

Apparently, Vanden Bosch has been sporting these red contact lenses for a little while now in an effort to psych out his opponents … but the colored Nike MAXSIGHT contact lenses are also said to help reduce glare and contrast, and VandenBosch has said that they “help to block the sunlight”.

Green Bay Packers feast on Detroit Lions

Part of me wants to dwell on the mistakes made by the Lions that cost them a shot against the Green Bay Packers.  The other part of me simply wants to dismiss the 27-15 loss because the Packers are really that good.
