So Yeah, Detroit lost to Green Bay at the Thanksgiving Day game 27-15. They actually set a franchise record for losing eight consecutive Thanksgiving Day games. Yipee! No. Not really the kind of records you want them to be setting but, oh well. There's worse things in life. Right? But lets start at the beginning. First there was the long 2 1/2 hour drive down the 401.
It was a great day for a drive. I love seeing all the windmills as we get closer to windsor.
They look so majestic; there almost mesmerizing!
Then, ya, we made it.
Such proud happy fans! I think it's funny when I catch people in the background stuffing their faces. hehe!
I love it when they bring out that huge flag. It really does make your heart go all a flutter. I mean we're Canadian and I still get all choked up!
As for the game; I have to say that watching Aaron Rodgers play was just unbelievable. That guy is awesome! No wonder Green Bay is on top with that guy as their quarterback. Nothing phases him, he's right on the money every single time.
Detroit.....well.....I don't know where Matthew was throwing half the time, but in spite of his three interceptions they still managed to get some points on the board.
This little guy just down from us couldn't take it any more.
Aaaand passed out!
Detroit had lots of injuries..........
and just killed themselves with penalties. Then that stunt Ndamukong Suh pulled in the third quarter was just bad sportsmanship. It got him ejected from the game and hurt the team. Bad Suh! Bad, bad Suh!!
Okay enough with the reprimanding.
All in all it was a great day! The halftime show with Nickelback was awesome!
The song they did was so fitting for the United Way campaign.
Then Calvin Johnson even got a touchdown with 11 seconds left in the game.
We got to see some sports celebrities.
Like Howie Long and Terry Bradshaw.
Hey, is that Jimmy Johnson?
I love that guy!
And I got to see my Nate Burleson. Life is good!
Yes, it would have been great to see the Lions beat Green Bay but I still love the Lions and I love to watch them play at Ford Field. It's a great stadium, a great experience and we always have a great time!
Did I mention it was great?
Win or lose, that's my team! As Steve said on the drive home, "It could be worse, they could be like Seattle!" Poor Stevie, the Seahawks really suck this year. Goooooo Lions!!
And yes, the hounds survived just great with their sister Brandi coming over to furrysit!
They waited in the window for a bit.
Then gave up.
Freddie was mad at me for awhile when I got home and wouldn't talk to me.
But he got over it!
