Detroit Lions: Shopping for Swag During the Lockout

0 of 13

    OK, gang, we are in the midst of the great lockout of 2011.  We Lions fans are starved for news even when there is news.  Without free agency, OTA's, Mini camps, and the possibility of no training camp, we are getting rather restless these days.

    With literally nothing to write about these days, I decided to go through my Lions swag, and do some shopping on the internet.

    I wish to thank Edward Novelo, a Dallas Cowboys Featured Columnist for his inspiration.

    That Joey Harrington Jersey has to go.

    Here's the Lions swag that no real Lions fan can do without. . . .

    That Double "0" means business!

    Now this little gnome would look good on the front porch, or patio, wouldn't it?

    Don't be fooled by appearances.  This is no ordinary Gnome.  That "Double 0" status gives him a license to kill.

    He's killing me.
