Lions on a bye, No Basketball, Baseball Done...What am I to do?

It has been a rough month or so for me following all the Detroit teams. HAd such high hope for the Tigers to make it at least to the World Series. Texas ended that dream. I give them credit. Their bullpen shut us down. Of course we couldn't hit bad pitching either so that is a double whammy.

Right aroudn the time the Tigers got knocked off the Lions showed that they still have a lot of work to do. After a 5-0 start they immediately lost 2 straight. San Fran was a good team and appears to be headed towards the playoffs. Still a game they played poorly in and the old Lion fan mentality began to creep back in. 2 straight losses and we're hearing chicken littles everywhere. Good thing we have that pool safety fence or I may have jumped into the pool with the cover still on it.

Then they go on to rape Denver right before the bye to end up at 6-2 in the first half of the season. Denver looked awful, and God Tebow looked even worse.

Taking a lot from that beating may not be all that impressive. That was the second time this year (KC being the first) that the Lions put a serious beating on a time, however. This is nothing common for us Lions fans. Last year they whooped on St. Louis with the rookie Bradford at the helm, but before that it had to have been several years since we have seen one. While the opponents in all these games were clearly not having good days it says a little bit I guess about where we are. We can actually beat teams we should now, and do it convincingly. It's nice to see.

OK...enough rambling. I guess I just wanted to say that it was a rough month, and that trouncing of Denver gave me a little hope back at least. :)
