Meh, in the fall and winter you can watch a bunch of lions wandering aimlessly in the dark every Sunday.

Do you know why I hate perforated paper towels? Because they're tear-able.

THEY'RE TEAR-ABLE, CORAL

I suppose that they will now put lion crossing signs up. I would not want to be that guy on the little motor bike, if those lions got mad.

We don't have lions here, But a few days ago I saw a Bobcat/Cougar just outside of DC, in Virginia!  Most people don't care but that's pretty cool (around here).

These were asiatic lions, which I was prior unaware of such a species existing. It's a shame they are endangered, plus confined to a single region of India. Maybe a few of the good ones can be traded away, enabling a few to reach a Superb Owl, or even stuffed and enshrined in Canton.

That's not even close to a good joke man.  Lions, and NFL?  You nerded out on the "Superb Owl" part.

The Lions haven't sniffed A "Surerb Owl" in what? 70 years?

One day Lions fans.  This isn't a knock on you.  It's a knock on this moron.

There is a LARGE difference between a Bobcat and Cougar (aka Mountain Lion).  A Bobcat maxes out about 20-40# (a large, compact, muscular house cat).  They are related to the Lynx -- a cold-weather cat mostly found in Canada -- which is almost twice as big.   Both have a spotted coat and very pointed ears.  Cougars (at least the 4-legged kind) are between 120-200# as adults with a coat that is generally tan with a white underside and more rounded ears.  It is pretty easy to tell the difference if you get a decent look at them at all.  Chances are that it was a Bobcat as cougars rarely come east of the Rockies (although it has happened) and Lynx rarely come south of Canadian border states in the east.

I'll accept the punishment for the poor attempt at humor. I really wanted to comment on how I never knew India had their own lions, different from those in Africa.

I grew up outside Detroit, later moved to Ohio. Neither state appears to have a pro football team most years. Living in San Diego now, we got the team to pack up and move. I'm content with hockey and college football, as they generally treat fans better than the NFL (my opinion).

HeHe -- I realized shortly after posting that the description could describe some 2-legged cougars too.  I was wondering how long it would take for someone else to share that observation.  Fark -- you didn't disappoint.

I was just alerted to something about a 120# tan cougar on all fours in this thread so thought I'd mosey over to see what's up.

Never, actually. They won an NFL championship years back, before it became the superb owl.

They need to do what they did up in Canada when they had a problem with lynx crossing the road. They built cat bridges and tunnels.
