In a matter of months, NFL fans around the globe will be spending their Sundays with the tube turned off, their office computer used for business and not fantasy trading, and (gulp) losing their excuse to avoid Sunday work. Bottom line, it will be a somber fall in 2011 if there is no professional football, but it won’t be as bad for some teams, like the Detroit Lions.
The Lions are one of the few teams that could actually see some light in this year’s lockout (what was that? Light for the Lions?!). With these five reasons Lions fans all over the nation will have justification to take this football-less fall a little less lightly.
