The post to get off 666 posts

My last post was post number 666 on this blog. While the debate will rage that 666 isn't really the number of the beast, it is an ominous number none the less and must not be tampered with in my opinion. Unless that is you want to make a deal with the Devil, and it appears that maybe I do.

Just have a gander at what my last post was about. IF you are even too lazy to do that I will tell you. It was my optimism for the Detroit Lions off-season. Yup...I inadvertently have set myself up where I have to decide if a deal with the Devil is the way to go, or to anger him mightily by saying no.

This could prolong the curse for 50 more years if I do not make the right call here. After a positive end to the season we may find the NFL gets a lockout and the Lions lose a precious rebuilding year. So many things could go horribly wrong if I do not make the right decision.

I may just need this waterproof digital cameras in the coming year because I will be ON FIRE.

I think we all know what I will choose. >:)

Haven't Been This Optimistic About a Lions Off-season In My Life

Obviously, I wasn't this big of a sports fan that I paid this much attention to it more then that last 10-15 years or so. I remember Barry playing and yes I have always been a huge fan, but I was never a sports freak until about the mid 90s. We didn't have access to the kind of coverage we do now with the internet either before that so information was based on pretty much crappy newspaper articles and weekly magazines.

Now I can get news whenever I want and ever outrageous rumor I hear actually sounds somewhat feasible this year for the first time. Things like Killer Kowalski saying "I wouldn't be shocked if the Lions went after Albert Haynesworth". Sure we all know he's Shaun Rogers with even less interest in playing most series, but the thing is still out there and it actually makes some semblance of sense now.

People talk about free agents like Champ Bailey possibly, and I think "why not?" The media is gonna be in love with Detroit this off-season and all we have to do is make it happen.

I shall be talking crazy this off-season so be prepared. You will have to take it with a grain of salt and you may begin to wonder if I am sitting here in wedding dresses and drinking out of a cowboy boot. I am just genuinely excited for the first time about the Lions with reasonable degree of actually having something positive happen that I don't think is a ridiculous move for a team that has no chance.
