But unbeknownst to those who read me on Bleacher Report, I have been closely following the Detroit Tigers' unsteady rise to the World Series all season.
I'm no baseball writer, and despite a halfhearted effort, I have yet to grasp the significance of the WAR statistic, but I do know that the Tigers have done some things right to be four wins away from a championship, despite none of those things going right in Game 1.
By contrast, the Lions have yet to win four games all year. Perhaps the team struggling now (the Lions) could learn some things from the team that found success after struggling throughout most of the regular season (the Tigers)?
After all, one of those teams worked out of its funk. The other just scored seven points on Monday Night Football.
So what can the Lions pick up from what is currently the most successful team in Detroit sports?
