Housekeeping: What’s up at SideLion Report


I wanted to touch base, let everyone know what’s been going on, as I’ve been posting irregularly here at SLR. I’m sure you’re asking, “Big Al, why so quiet when it comes to the Lions?”

1. There’s very little in the way of Lions news right now. By very little, I mean absolutely none. Seriously, there’s not a thing to report, or comment upon. If there is a dead time in the 365/24/7 NFL, we’re in it.

2. Ian, a very good friend, put his trust in me to run his popular Detroit Tigers blog, Bless You Boys, while he’s out of the country.  Ian’s done a great job at building readership, and I don’t want to screw up his hard work. As you might guess, it being in the middle of baseball season, ByB takes a fair bit of my attention in writing posts, and participating in game threads. I’ll be helping out there through this weekend.

3. The Red Wings and Pistons are in the middle of epic playoff runs, and hey, I am a big fan of both teams! (As I write this, both are losing in their respective games, DAMMIT!) I’m watching both series closely, and commenting upon them often at TWFE. In other words, 3 of Detroit’s pro teams are going gangbusters news wise, while the Lions are essentially dark.

4. I’m rolling around some ideas as to how I want to write about the Lions as we get closer to camp.

So there will be activity as SLR, as the Lions warrant coverage.  Right now, they don’t warrant much, save for when they insult their fans or do something else insanely stupid. Give it time, it’s not a matter of if the Lions will do something idiotic, it’s only a matter of when

    Al, a friend made a frightening observation this evening. He asked who the is best QB in the NFC North. I thought for a moment and said A. Rodgers of the Pack. He said no, Jon Kitna. After he picked me up off the floor and administered the Heimlich I disputed the conclusion. But he stuck to his guns (he’s a died in the wool Packer fan, by the way.) Would you like his e-mail so that you can properly educate him?

    How’s this for Lions news…both of their first two picks have recently been arrested in what appear to be alcohol related incidents.  I’m glad to see that Pound the Rock and the Moron are bringing in character guys.
