Detroit Lions 2008 Season

What do you say boys?  Time for a little bit of Football, by far my favorite sport.

Since the Lions are my hometown team and I have followed them since I started playing football when I was 10 yrs. old, I decided to start a blog.  I will talk about the past weeks game as well as the upcoming game.

Feel free to chime in with whatever you boys want, good or bad.  I am a big boy and can take it......plus, the Lions have been bad for some time now, so I am use to hearing from all my friends.

When going into this season I saw a team that went 7-9 last year and did absolutely nothing to improve on their team.....then training camp came. 

Their D looks so much better than I thought it would.  Their O looks more balanced (even though they only avg. 3.4 yds. per carry in the pre-season), they ran the ball an average of about 23 times per game last year.....this pre-season alone they averaged 31 carries.

Pistons Playoff Blog

I am going to keep a running blog going and recap and talk about the games/series as the Pistons try to march for the title.


Could it be a rematch of 04' with the Lakers and Pistons meeting in the Finals?


Boston will be tough to beat, but the Pistons have fresher legs and a world of playoff experience behind them, should be fun.


Feel free to chime in as I spend the next month and a half cheering on my home team.
