Monday was my first night attempting to be a Denver Broncos fan. They played really well. But, as an abused Lions fan during the entire game I kept waiting for them to fall apart. Surely there's a fumble coming. This is where they throw the interception, right? Here comes the prevent defense that prevents us from winning. But, they just got better as the game went on. I'm not sure what to do. I feel dirty.
So am I a traitor to the Lions? Well, let me put it this way. I still root for them, but it's like watching sports on ESPN Classics. What's the fun if you already know the outcome?
As a current Lions fan said to me this morning... "...take away the first quarter and we win 21-13".
I don't want to go back to that kind of abusive relationship.
