Didn't notice that - but if she is she seems to be enjoying it.

"I wish not that many would be," he said Tuesday during a light-hearted moment in an interview with ESPN's 'Mike & Mike.' "It's kind of disappointing, honestly. We walk around, I see guys trying to find Pokemon in the hot tub or the cold tub or whatever that is. I have no idea what that is -- I don't have any social media or any of those apps or any of that kind of stuff -- but it's a disappointing amount.

I'm trying to decide if I start the season cheering for the Lions or not. I gave up on them early in the season when it was clear they'd given up on themselves before 1/4 season was done. Problem is, I just couldn't find a team to adopt. Wife is from NE and wanted me to become a Pats fan. NFW. I think it's going to DET or nobody.

I adopted the DET and nobody policy after the 2007 season. Finally decided after 40 years to call it quits and the timing obviously could not have been better. Stress-free Sunday afternoons. Probably have not watched more than five quarters per season since then. I highly recommend this approach to that sad franchise.

Doesn't mean I don't have a general sense of what's going on with Lions organization, but I bet I couldn't name more than five players on the roster anymore.

I watch and root for the Lions, usually on DVR or while napping. But I don't care if they lose and my day is not planned around their games (it was when younger). I lost caring interest after Barry retired. And more than that, lost most of my interest in the NFL to college football. NFL is background noise on Sundays.

Same with the Red Wings. I grew up watching/listening to every game. I remember shootin' pool with my old man in basement listening to Bruce Martyn on the radio.

Grew up on the Lions, Red Wings and Spartans. As I get older the less I care about the first two.

I grew up on the Tigers - Lions - Red Wings - Spartans - Pistons. It quickly flipped to Spartans - Tigers - Lions - Red Wings - Pistons. I'm pretty much still there, I know the Lions will be a train wreck but I can't turn away.

Supposedly the Lions have contacted no FA Tight Ends so this may be true....Wags? You've got the tightest end of all, have you heard from them?

Dave Birkett ‏@davebirkett 2h2 hours ago
One Lions player believes Eric Ebron came away with just a minor ankle injury yesterday. Still waiting on firm word.

The only new information we have about Ebron is he's walking, which while not providing answers, is a good sign.

I'm only posting this here because it's something to bitch about.

NFL Fan Base Rankings: Cowboys beat out Steelers, Packers fans for top spot

24. Detroit Lions

If you see a Lions fan this week, give them a hug because they probably if they've been cheering for Detroit their entire life. The Lions have the fewest playoff wins of any team during the Super Bowl era, which is pretty bad when you consider the fact that three of the teams (Jaguars, Panthers, Texans) didn't even exist before 1995 (2002 for the Texans). If Lions fans eventually give up on the team, you can't really blame them, Detroit has only won one playoff game since 1958.

There is no way Lions fans deserve to be ranked that low.

First, nothing of what was written about the Lions is inaccurate, but what the hell does the success (see: lack of) have to do with actual Lions fans?

Second, the fact that more than five people show up every week means they should easily be in the top 10.  As it is, published (and fraudulent)  attendence figures for 2015 show that Ford Field is filled to 94.4% of capacity.

Are they just calling Lions fans bad because they actually bother to show up?

Yep. It's easy being a fan of teams who make the playoffs. It's amazing the lions sell out so many times. Loyal to a fault.

Where to start?
I mean, the first thing with pea soup is the texture, okay?
I've had watery pea soup, it's AWFUL.
Uh, I've had gelatinous, thick pea soup, it's TERRIBLE.
Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.
Uh, number five: Pea soup is best made, uh, by hand, not out of a Campbell's can. And the key to pea soup, you want a ham bone, uh, for the stock you make, uh, to, to boil your peas.

My dumbass brother is flying in from California this fall to go to a Lions game. Why the eff he wants to do that is beyond me. I told him there's no way in hell I'd drive from St Johns to Detroit to watch the Lions get beat, let along flying 2/3's of the way across the country. He's a scUM grad so that helps explain it a little bit but wtf? Needless to say, I'm not going to the game with him. If I want to watch the Lions get beat I'll turn on the TV in the garage and work on something else at the same time so as not to waste a perfectly good fall afternoon.

He's going to be harder to replace than thought. He also had two bad throws last year, one over throw against Utah and one agains us where had he connected, michigans season would have been an OSU game away from magical.
