Being undefeated is an uncommon occurrence in Detroit Lions football. How you view the 2-0 start says a lot about what kind of a fan you are.
In a previous article, I dared you to ask yourself if you are a Kool-aid drinker, or a Same Old Lions fan. I think this is a good time to check in with you, Detroit Lions fan. Although I posed the question in a tongue-in-cheek manner, the fact is that the fast start to 2017 has probably made it even easier to tell which fan you are.
Kool-aid fans are completely sold on anything the Lions franchise says about itself. They wear the rose-colored glasses, so to speak. Only they’re Honolulu blue, and come with a funny hat.
Same Old Lions fans are negative about anything. A win streak is just a chance for a bigger letdown, later. When that happens, they’ll say, “Same old Lions…”
Maybe you are checking “for a friend.”
Using the current state of the franchise, further diagnose yourself, or some unlucky soul who’s a Lions fan. How are you/they handling the 2-0 start? Ask your friend these questions.
I will give my ‘tweener response, to assist you in judging whether or not to have said fan committed this season.
When the Lions won the second game against the Giants, your immediate response was more like which of the following two responses?
“Quarterback Matt Stafford didn’t even have to throw for us to win, and our defense was awesome! Super Bowl!”
Remember their answers. Write them down if your friend is laying on the couch confessing at this point.
