Hey, theres not a thing wrong with detroit! Everyone has a bad time. Look at the Cowboys
My favorite team is the Pittsburgh Steelers. Don't ask me why, I've like them since I was little.Of course, that's AFTER the Cowboys
And yes, I remember Jason Tucker, my husband always said he's a bad mother, shush your mouth!

Jason is a bad ? Really? I guess he might be, but I have to say I think he is one of the few receivers out there with some class. After he makes an amazing circus catch there is no grandstanding or carrying on, just drops the ball and moves on to the next play. Sigh, I guess that means I am old, I miss the days when there was no crap in the end zone. It gets tough to teach the kids I work with about sportsmanship when they see so little of it displayed.

The show in the end zone is getting pretty sad. We see games of past when they played for the love of the game not the money. How they got hurt, and still played!
It's still fun to watch them play!
Hey I know a player ya'll can have, his name is Terrel Owens

Well, there's a bad time, and then there's the Lions.

Dallas, 3 Super Bowl Rings in the last 15 years.

Detroit, One playoff win (at least I was there) in my lifetime! (34 years and counting...)

As I used to tell the folks in Dallas when I lived there and they complained about the Cowboys - folks in Dallas don't know what bad football is!!

If he promises to catch the ball, we'll take him!!

(BTW - we fired another coach today, I think that now puts us at 3 coaches in the last 36 months...)

You know what they say....third time lucky! (I know it doesn't look like a Lion, but hey, it's the closest emoticon I could find. )

Cameron and Grace,

You would probably like it around here. We live in the middle of the Nascar triangle (Charlotte, Rockingham, and Darlington). I am definitely not a Nascar fan, but it is neat to watch their cars going through town on the way to a race. Of course we don't see the cars, but most of their trucks are beautifully painted and look really nice. Some have elaborate pictures painted on them, and others have simple pictures on them.

Congratulations on your team winning Ken. If James and I are going to build that log cabin (ask Alix, LOL), I guess we will have to become Edmonton Eskimo fans!

Barbara
