I can live in a world where I'm honestly happy that gas is "down" to $3.40 a gallon. But I don't know if I can handle a world where the Detroit Lions are good. Matt Millen, the GM of the Detroit Lions who was hired despite no experience in the front office was expected by William Clay Ford to be the idiot savant of drafting. He got half of it right, the guy was definitely an idiot. Now he's fired.
More importantly, let's ask the hard hitting questions that C&P.com is known for - A) Has anyone seen the word "savant" anywhere but part of "idiot savant"? B) Has anyone bought a Ford car or truck, driven it off the lot and thought to themselves "Wait a minute, the same guy who runs the Lions runs this car company? Did I just buy a Ford Millen? What's that clunking?"
I'm a little disappointed because this may be the beginning of the end of our automatic 2-0 record every year. True, there's no indication that the Fords will figure it out and hire someone competent, but still, they could accidentally make a good decision somehow.
The Lions are so bad that the Minnesota Golden Gophers would schedule them for their homecoming game. A team that had to hang on to beat Division 12 Montana State by the way. Seriously. I give the college game a lot of crap because I consider it to be the minor leagues of football and because of the cupcakes on the schedule, but given the two automatic wins every year the Lions give us maybe it's time to reconsider.
I'd write more but I have to go now. I've got an interview with WC Ford about an opening in his organization. He heard I talk about them footballs and thought I'd be a good fit. So don't sweat it Packer fans, I'll make sure the Lions keep on giving us what we need. Sure they may figure me out, but it'll take 7 years. Now if you'll excuse me I need to go pick a wide receiver in the top 10.
