Detroit Lions: How to handle the wait for Monday night
College games, Sunday day, and Sunday night games
This article is a Friday primer for the weekend. Luckily, your football distraction starts with a Friday night game, albeit a TCU-SMU matchup. TCU is ranked, maybe that helps???
Obviously, Saturday is packed with college football, including watching for quality ESPN GameDay signs. No??? I’m the only one who likes that part? Nah!
USC-Stanford looks like the best game on Saturday, but it’s not until 8:30 pm. Sheesh…
Both in-state teams, Michigan and Michigan State, are both ranked and playing throughout the day, too. Michigan is even playing Western Michigan University, to add some interest.
After the Sunday day games, we can watch two of our rivals kill each other; the Packers and Bears play at Lambeau, which gives us our first look at this year’s competition. The Vikings are at home versus the Forty-Niners.
Here is a big chance to fill clock and still get enough football to tide you over until that Monday, 7:10 start time! Make sure to take pizza breaks every 45 minutes, or so …
To be honest, when I want to see Detroit Lions football, sometimes video games help.
I like a game of Madden to fill in some dead time, now and again. Madden ’19 just dropped; try your hand at taking Matthew Stafford to an opening night win, or maybe all the way to a Lombardi. I guess it depends on how much time you have on your hands … This usually just makes me want to see the real thing, though.
