Fan's 2006 Predictions

This page is dedicated to my favorite football team, the Detroit Lions.
For better or worse, I have pledged to root
for my team regardless of their actions.
They may not always win, but they are always entertaining.

Introduction: 

It's a good thing I like challenges because there is nothing more challenging than being a Lions Fan!  (Those of you reading this who are also fans know exactly what I mean).  But I got to tell you, I think that Matt & Marty Mooch Marinelli (hey, I have the right to change my mind, don't I?) are building a quality team, but not everyone agrees and that should make for some diverse estimates of their abilities.  I thought it would be fun to post the beliefs of fellow forum members before the season begins just to see how well we can foresee the unforeseeable, hence the prediction contest on the right.

Lions Humor?

What happens when you have

1) nothing to do
2) a sharp knife
3) a large lime
4) a patient cat
5) too much tequila
6) and it's football season?

.....

....

...

..

Someone sent me this by email, I don't know who to credit for it.

Will the Lions look good this year?

Or will they have a slightly different look about them?

 
(every time I look at this poor cat I crack up laughing)
