Oh yes. It is time again. Time for 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!
With luck and skill and Joey Harrington, we are going to hope that this song appears here every time that the Lions have a game. Because I will be posting it every time they win. Oh yes. So that all the world (or the miniscule portion of it that reads this thing) will share my boundless joy.
The first half was pretty awful-looking. No one was scoring on either side, turnovers were rife, etc. etc. In the second half suddenly both teams turned on and started driving for points. Harrington didn't look spectacular, but he looked solid. He made some good completions, he kept his head, he ran when he had to. The announcers kept saying that our defensive secondary was really weak, and there were indeed some poorly-covered plays back there, but we also recovered what seemed like a ridiculous number of fumbles.
Eddie Drummond returned a kickoff 99 yards for a touchdown. I love him. I love him to little, tiny pieces. No relation to Brian and Stephanie, by the by. Although, as Stephanie pointed out, he is exactly the same height as her, and (according to the Lions website) enjoys dancing and swimming. Maybe they're secret namemates.
Anyways, I was so ecstatic about this win, I made another desktop image. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want it full-size for your own use.
The Red Sox game was on, but I didn't watch it because it just got depressing. The Patriots are playing right now, but they're not on TV here... ESPN is showing golf, ESPN2 is showing some kind of drag racing thing, ABC is showing some horse race or other, FOX is showing Seahawks/Bucs, and CBS is showing the Cowboys/Browns. Bah. Clearly the Patriots are more important than any of those things.
Happily, the night game tonight is Dolphins/Bengals. So I will be watching that while hurriedly scrawling something passable for my drawing homework. And studying for bio. Oh, how I will be studying for bio.
Hum. My RA, Ryan, just popped in to say hi and ask how his Cowboys were doing. I guess he likes the Cowboys. *cough*freak*cough*
I was going to just make a sandwich or something in the dorm tonight for dinner, since I have all this homework that needs doing, but I just talked to Leslie and she wants to venture out into the great big world of Ann Arbor for dinner. So I guess I'm doing that. Yay. Food.
But for now, homework.
edit: I watched the Dolphins game. I don't want to talk about it. Defense. The whole. frikking. game. was defense. And you can't, you just can't have a team without an actual quarterback. That's all I can say. It was painful. Painful.
