Forward down the field
a charging team that will not yield,
and when the Blue and Silver wave,
stand and cheer the brave!
RAH! RAH! RAH!
Go hard win the game!
With honor you will keep your fame!
Down the field and gain,
A LIONS VICTORY!
Ha ha, haven't had much opportunity to break that out lately. I've got it as one of my away messages, but I never get to use it. I got to dust it off today though! 23-13! Take that, you nasty little penalty-riddled Raiders!
Holy cats that made me so happy. Not only a win, but a legitimate, skillful win. The Lions picked off so many balls that it was beautiful. Our defense was a joy to watch. The offense was solid, with a much higher emphasis on rushing than they'd been doing. Ah, and it worked. Two touchdowns, a slew of field goals by the joyous Jason Hanson. So good.
And, of course, we beat State! 27-20. Close, and it came down right to the end, as it generally does, but a win for us! Chris Perry, our big runner, carried the ball a school-record 51 times, for 219 yards. Navarre didn't stink this game up either. And it was an away game, which makes it doubly sweet, since we've had trouble winning away games lately. Thank cats we beat State. I don't think I could've stood it if we hadn't. The shame would have been crushing.
Yup, just thought I'd make sure everyone knew of the joy which I am experiencing. It is marred only by the fact that the Dolphins lost to the Colts, making me frowny-sad. Pats play tomorrow, we'll see what we will see. But! Happiness! Michigan wins, Lions win! Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet.
