Detroit Lions Big Announcement Not So Big Afterall

So, how bout that big announcement from the Lions?

The speculation ran rampant last night after WXYZ sports anchor Tom Leyden came out with the following tweet last night:

Let the speculation begin about #Lions announcement. I’ll be there at 7 tomorrow when we find out. Something big I’m told. #backchannel.

Sounds like Tom has been hanging out with the weather team.

Just like the hype surrounding the big snow storm last week, the anticipation surrounding the Lions big announcement mostly ends in disappointment.

What was the big announcement? Lions preseason games will be shown on WXYZ in Detroit next season in addition to a variety of exclusive pregame, draft, training camp and interview segments.

Left breathless? Didn’t think so.

The news is a welcomed change, however. WWJ did a generally bad job in bringing Lions preseason games to television audiences last year. Let’s hope that WXYZ’s coverage exceeds the hype surrounding the “big announcement”.
