Lions win 3rd Straight as Curse begins to Fade

The negative influence of the curse of Bobby Layne seems to be fading as the Lions won their 3rd consecutive “thrilling” victory over an opponent most thought they would lose to. With one game left against a team most figure the Lions should win, there appears to be a wave of optimism sweeping the Lion fans and why not. This has been the worst drought in the history of sports whether you count back ten years or fifty years. The Lions appear to be on the brink but if they lose the last game of the year to a team they should beat, most of this optimism will be lost and the theme “same ol Lions” will return defining a team that does just enough to keep you interested before ripping your heart out.

Let’s hope that’s not the case, go out a winner and build on this for 2011.
