It was a packed house at Ford Field yesterday.
We had an awesome day at Ford Field yesterday! It was the American Thanksgiving Holiday and the Patriots came to Ford Field to play the Lions. And let me tell ya it sure didn't hurt that Kid Rock was the halftime show!
Yep, that's the "Kid"
How great is that shot!
Sure the Lions lost 45-24, but they played great, it just seems that they always tend to fizzle out during the second half of the game. They come out like roaring lions and then turn into pussycats. Oh, the trials and tribulations of being a fan. I still think it was a great game. Heck even Shaun Hill started to make his own tackles. Of course though all the NFL and news does is talk about Tom Brady. They are forgetting that it takes two teams to make a football game and the Lions definitely made it a game! They don't mention that Ndamukong Suh sacked Tom Brady giving him 8, which breaks the team rookie record set by Tracy Scoggins in 1992. Maurice Morris had an awesome game carrying the ball 9 times, getting 55 yards and 2 touchdowns. Calvin Johnson and yes even Shaun Hill got touchdowns. Anybody can be a Patriots fan, but it takes a lot more heart and compassion to be a devoted Lions fan. My confidence will not sway in these guys 'cause the potential is there!
That's right the Lions did have the lead a couple of times!
And had tied it up a couple of times. Notice the quarter. They're contenders, I tell ya!!
Another great shot.
Now I just feel like having turkey. I think I will start celebrating the Canadian and the American Thanksgiving Days!
