I have never had a bagel bite in my life lol
But in that same realm, why are hot dog buns in packages of 8 and hot dogs in packages of 10?
You have to buy a lot of those to come out even lol

Since when lol, or is that just a Texas thing at this point? Hot dogs and hot dog buns in the north have matched numbers for a very long time, at least since the mid-90s in Michigan and Illinois...

Bingo. He's most likely going to have to go through yet another GM/coaching change, and it sucks. He says all the right things like he never wants to leave here and still wants to try to build a winner here (he'll always have my admiration and respect for that), but if he turned around and demanded a trade tomorrow I'd still be happy for him. He's a gamer, and absolute joy to watch play, and seems a standup guy too. As usual, the Lions for the most part have wasted him.

Pretty much in the same boat as far as social interactions go. I've gone out to a restaurant once, and we sat outside-it was alright and planning on going out again but once the colder months hit I think I'll just stay in. It's not me I'm worried about, it's the rest of the morons out there (it only takes one). As much as I want to see Tenet in a movie theatre that's out of the question at the moment. Maybe in a few weeks and a mid-week matinee when hardly anyone else goes.

It's rare in Chicago but I don't hesitate to call out someone for not wearing a mask or wearing it incorrectly in a grocery store...if they want to get pissy about it, fuck 'em lol. I'm not there to make friends and I can defend myself just fine. If someone thinks I'm being too cautious or "afraid" of a virus, I really don't give a shit haha

I've hung out responsibly with friends a couple times when I'm back in Michigan (friend's deck, we're at least 6 feet apart, etc.). But other than that, I just chill out a lot. Gyms have been open here a couple months and as far as I can tell have been safe...but I haven't gone back. Just working out in the condo (lot of bodyweight stuff, plyometrics), and have thankfully lost most of the weight I gained in Peoria during quarantine. Always forward.

Lions made some history today.


Also saw the Falcons blew a big lead and lost...at least it didn't happen in the Super Bowl. That would be embarrassing.

Hell of a QB you boys got there, Norm.

Saw him kneeling last Sunday and was damn proud of him for doing so. He'll be the kid I'm most gonna miss watching play until Quinn and Patricia are gone.

I celebrated when the Lions drafted him because it meant the Jets wouldn't. I thought Sanchez was the better QB.

I'm a terrible evaluator of talent.

Lol, I was wrong about him too. I honestly can't even remember who I thought the Lions should've drafted, but it wasn't a QB. Pretty sure I felt they should go defense or line. I was going to write what I posted on FB the day he was drafted, but their search function sucks.

FB, in general, sucks.

F*ck if I know lol. I didn't even realize putting your preferred pronoun in your bio on twitter was supposed to be a thing. Unless she stated specifically she hates trans people I don't get the hate.

I remember on a previous version of this board back when Matt Millen was still GM of the Detroit Lions that I finally hit my breaking point and said ďfuck itĒ, Iím not watching this team again until Millenís gone.

Itís now 2020, and Iíve hit my breaking point once again: until Bob Quinn and Matt Patricia are fired, Iím out. Not wasting my time on Sunday, not spending another dime on merchandise, Iím done.

I'm intrigued by this one. Saw the original take when it was released and it put me to sleep; since then I've had no desire to rewatch it and hadn't read the books either.
