I joke out of love . . .

I may be going through a good run with my teams right now, but I know well the shoe will be on the other foot soon enough .. .

Over the course of the last three days, I have been thinking of Blott's GeekBadge a lot. For I, like Blott, happen to be a fan of a deeply undeserving team.

And as I look back over another season lost (after the first week of the season), I feel a kind of kinship to the Blotts of the world, a kinship that people rooting for decent teams simply cannot know.

Yes, for only the truly trampled upon can understand what it is like to see your team pull ahead with only 38 seconds left in a game and still fear for the outcome of the game ("Marvin! Why are you smiling on the sidelines!?! The game IS NOT OVER YET!!!'" he screams at the television).

And I did fear, and sadly, for good reason. cry

The anger, frustration, depression, the microcosm of a Bengals season, played out in 38 ticks of a clock. I made a promise, a solid vow in a moment of passion, to my wife that I would not watch another game (this season, anyway) until the Bengals were better than .500, so perhaps this, the 2009-2010 NFL season, is already at its end.

So, I say to you Blott,

angry Let Them Belittle, Let Them Click Their Tongues And Have Their Laughs! angry

For they, they shall never know what it is to cheer for a really sucky team.

One of the stages in Scribblenauts features a brown bear and a polar bear. I conjured a lion to eat them. He handled the brown bear easily enough, but didn't fare so well against the polar bear.

I think this tells us the Lions will beat the Bears October 4th, but not January 3rd.

How do you keep lions out of your backyard in Detroit?
Erect some goal posts.

How do you count to ten in Detroit?
Oh-and-one, Oh-and-two, Oh-and-three.

You know, these "jokes" about the Lions are really starting to get old; as is "kidding" with Ben about his favorite team. Perhaps it's time we move on...

30+ years of being a Lions fan makes for really thick skin.

I remember a story from last year, when during the playoffs a guy went to a pub wearing the Kitna jersey. The patrons were so overwhelmed by his bravery that everyone got him one beer.

I need a Matt shirt.
