Detroit Lions

Detroit Lions

I know it’s early, but being a long time Detroit Lions fan (grow up in Michigan), I feel that this is the year for the Lions!! I know it’s the first week of the season, but the Lions won this past weekend.

Growing up in Michigan, you always hoped when football season started, that it was the year for the Lions. But each year, they would come a little or a lot short at the end. I remember the years with Billy Sims and Barry Sanders, those were good years. And then there were the years with Wayne Fontes… I would rather not talk about those years.

I also remember tailgating at the old Pontiac Silverdome… how did those people bring their dining room table to the parking lots?? Standing out in the cold and waiting for the hot dogs to heat up. Then heading into the Silverdome for the game and waiting for them to score so we could all sing the Gridiron Heroes song.

The Victory Song of the Detroit Lions

(Verse)
Hail the colors Blue and Silver let them wave.
Sing their song and cheer the Gridiron Heroes brave,
Fighting for fame, winning the game,
Dashing to victory as they go.

(Chorus)
Forward down the field,
A charging team that will not yield.
And when the Blue and Silver wave,
Stand and cheer the brave.
Rah, Rah, Rah.
Go hard, win the game.
With honor you will keep your fame.
Down the field and gain,
A Lion victory!

GO LIONS!

So hopefully the Lions will do better than last season and maybe make it to the playoffs. But if they don’t, I will always be cheering for the Lions till the very end.
