Lions win, 20-16. Against the Bears. In Chicago. This means the end of the inauspicious 24-away game losing streak. This means breaking out the song.
Forward down the field!
A charging team that will not yield!
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!
That said, it was a messy, messy win. Everyone had turnovers galore, and the big Lions touchdown was not a lovely Harrington toss or an acrobatic Pinner run. It was a freaking blocked field goal return by Bracy Walker. Hooray, good for Bracy Walker, very neat play. But it would've been nice if OUR OFFENSE WAS ABLE TO GET INTO THE ENDZONE. Granted, we did eventually get there, but I rather wish we would've had more than one actual offensive touchdown.
Also. Charles Rogers! Did I not address you directly in the last blog? Wasn't THE ONE THING I SAID TO YOU 'Don't Get Hurt'? Did you not just BREAK YOUR COLLARBONE? AGAIN? Yeah, you and Dre Bly. I am disgusted with the both of you.
I heard what happened to the Red Sox today, and I have to admit I'm kind of happy that it wasn't televised here. I watched the A's/Indians game, for the simple reason that it was on. I am now watching the Chiefs/Broncos game, for much the same reason. And I should now go pack up the ol' art supplies for tomorrow and hope that my teacher doesn't chuck out my homework in rage.
It's not my fault... the assignment was 'half black'. That was it. No instructions as to medium, paper size, WHAT WE WERE SUPPOSED TO BE DRAWING, nothing. So I copped out and wrote the word 'BLACK', with the bottom half of it black letters on white and the top half white letters on black. I am fully prepared to be embarassed in class tomorrow.
A final note: much as I despise the Hummer as a useless and almost infinitely annoying vehicle owned by almost infinitely annoying people, I do rather like their new ad campaign.
edit: Heh, just checked my stat service. You know it's back to school time when your hits from college towns finally start edging out the hits you get from your hometown. That apparently means you, Tufts kids. :)
