Detroit Public Square: Critics' Picks
Best Reason to Hope This Year is the Detroit Lions Season
Because, statistically speaking, this has to happen eventually ... right?
Published: April 9, 2014
The law of averages suggests a rare random event will eventually play out, so, fuck it: this year has to be the Detroit Lions' year. Why? We don't know! Because! We figure between Matthew Stafford getting married and the Lions getting a new coach in Jim Caldwell, it's a hopeful time. But even if it doesn't come together, Ford Field will remain bursting at the seams with a sold-out crowd for every home game this year. And if our Lions fail, fans will adamantly remain supportive of their cursed favorite team, crying, 'Just wait till next year!'
