Though I'm an avid supporter of Detoit's basketball team, I never really got into watching the NFL and so never really had anything bar a passing interest in the Detroit Lions. Right about now
, I'm fairly thankful for that.
Imagine that. A whole season of getting beat. I'm fairly used to being in teams that aren't successful but I wonder what something like this does to the ego of a professional athlete.
It made me think about this boxer who recently retired after 300 fights
. He lost 256 of them. Jesus. For me, these are the kind of stories that need to be told, those who strove with every ounce of their being to reach a level so high that they could be paid to do a sport they loved and ended up going down in history for being a bench mark in crapness.
