They are stil cooler than the packers.

CRAP-TASTIC! I was going to submit this link, but I figured Fark would never run it.

I love the guy with the bag on his head.
He thought he had problems back at 0-3!

I think some people are having difficulties with cause and effect and how logically valid inductive reasoning is here. While its certainly interesting that this case has turned up true so far, it does not mean that this pattern will always continue.

Still weird though.

In an unrelated note..
The Detroit Lions today traded Quarterback Charlie Batch
to the Buffalo Bills for a snowblower and 48 lbs. of
rock salt.

Golucky, LMAO, good one.

I predict that I will continue to NOT watch the Lions play football this season, or any season in the future.

Two Michigan guys go to Hell and Satan (not the Buffalo Sabres Forward) greets them by asking them how they like the weather down there.

They both agree that it's not too bad and that angered the dark lord, so he turned up the heat. This seemed to delight the Michigan guys even more, so Satan turned the heat even higher. This just made the Michigan guys take off their shirts.

This caused Satan to try another approach, so he turned the heat off and put on the air conditioning. So the Michigan guys put their shirts back on, and Satan makes it even colder, and the guys shiver a bit, but otherwise don't seem too bothered. Satan just can't seem to make hell miserable for these guys.

As a last ditch effort, Satan cranks the temperature way down and it's snowing in hell, in fact, hell has indeed frozen over. All of the sudden, Satan hears great cheers from the Michigan guys, who are giving high fives and dancing around, yelling. He goes over to them to see what's going on. One of the guys says to Satan, "The Lions have just won the Super Bowl!"

i am still trying to figure out how the Lions keep making news. if the WIN a game this year, that WILL be news.

It's 50 degree's today here in Michigan, in December. I'd rather have this than a winning season.

Notice the station name: Wood-TV. They have a radio station as well, Wood-FM, and one of their tag lines is "Wake up with WOOD." Nice.

And wildgolfer2: Of course the Lions will keep making news if they keep losing. An 0-11 streak is MUCH more notable than 2-9 or something. Winning would actually ruin the magic, you're not thinking like a Lions fan :)

Certainly a weirds study but proving true so far.......yesterday it was so warm here in Kalamazoo that I was driving with the windows down in my car.......on December 3rd I tell you......with the windows down......un -farking-believable

"So forget the wooly worms, forget the Farmer's Almanac and forget the fancy computers and just watch the Lions. The way this season is going, we may have palm trees growing in Grand Rapids by January."


The Lions couldn't boil an egg if you spotted em the water & the egg
2001-12-04 02:51:34 PM  
I am not proud of the Vikings this year but at least we are bette than those farking lions.......damn the packers
2001-12-04 03:31:35 PM  
Maybe The Lions should change their name to The Groundhogs.
2001-12-04 04:44:55 PM  
And I say, damn that Metrodome. Here's hoping the Bears and Vikings have humiliating games in Lambeau.
2001-12-04 05:13:39 PM  
I think it's due to the fact that, if the Lions win 10 games a season, Hell has to have frozen over. And we all know Hell is in Michigan.

Wow, I feel depressed suddenly. Desire to live...dwindling.

Charlott's Driver, at least we have a WINNING team and, well, our team doesn't practice in a glorified tent in the parking lot.

Heh, Mariah Carey has more talent then the 0-fer Lions.
2001-12-04 08:57:30 PM  
You can have negative talent? Is that kinda like antimatter? Will it destroy any talent that it comes in contact with?

My favorite image of a Lions fan was on Thanksgiving when John Madden circled a guy in the crowd with a sign that said in big block letters: "REFUSE TO LOSE"
Underneath in much smaller lettering it said "10 in a row." And look what they did. At least there's an easier target in the NFL than my Bengals this year. Who, by the way, can still make the playoffs despite a 4 game losing streak.
2001-12-05 12:38:20 AM  
Haw haw. :) Having lived in Michigan for my first 20 years, I've found out that the weather can be a bit UNpredictable at times, at least in the Detroit area. :)
2001-12-05 03:58:53 AM  
I'd make fun of the Lions, but I'm a Colts fan

I'm gonna go puke now.
