What did I get for Christmas? My long-suffering fandom for the Detroit Lions was finally rewarded with … wait for it … a playoff appearance.
Yes, playoffs. They won on Christmas Eve, which meant I was in a bar drinking beers on the day before Christmas. It was my duty, people, I didn’t want to do it. I even took a picture after the game (at right).

ARealGirl and I are thrilled you hang out on this site and spend your time with us. If we were with you, we’d swallow your soul, but since your not in our living rooms we will have to settle for wishing you all the best during the holiday season.
