Sundays in our house we get up early. Steve gets any yard work done (grass cutting, dog poop cleanup)and makes sure the fridge has some cold beer in it. I get any housework done and plan our football snack menu. On this menu was nacho chips with cheese and deep fried wings. Yummy! We put on our football garb and get the hounds walked so they will be tired for the game. Then Steve goes downstairs to warm up the big screen and watch pre-game shows while I apply my blue nail polish and Lions tatoos.
And we are football ready!
Fred and I assume the position in my/his chair while Steve assumes his. As you can see at the bottom of my chair Gloria takes her position on her bed at my feet.
Now since Seattle Seahawks are Stevies team, it is a little weird when watching Detroit with him.
Here he is in his Lions Gear, sitting in his Seahawks chair with his buddy Matt Hasselbeck (who now plays for the Titans)beside him. After the Lions game he runs up stairs and changes into his Seahawks gear for their game. What a fan!
The Detroit Lions proved just how good they are this year on Sunday when the played against the Vikings in Minnesota. Losing 20-0 at half time they came back out, changed things up, tied the game and then won in overtime with a field goal. Now that's a team with confidence! This is the first time they have been 3-0 since 1980 and their first win in the Metrodome since 1997!
Matthew Stafford threw for 378 yards completing 32 of 46 passes. Just 64 of those yards were in the first half. Coming back calm, cool and collected in the second half he threw another 314 yards. Amazing!
Look how excited Freddie is!
Calvin Johnson had seven catches for 108 yards and 2 touchdowns. This was Calvins career first of at least 2 touchdowns receiving in 3 straight games.
Everyone played great. Brandon Pettigew, Titus Young (keep your eye on this rookie), Jahvid Best, Nate Burleson:), Kyle Vanden Bosch, Cliff Avril and Suh all had a good game. If something doesn't work they switch it up until it does and Matthew has learned to throw the ball away if there is no play available. They look like a real team!! This Sunday they're in Dallas. Really? If they pull that off then I think we may have ourselves a Superbowl team!
