(For those of you who don't follow this sport where grown men put on plastic padding and hard hats and play a metaphor for war by moving an oddly shaped ball up and down a playing field, the Lions are the local Detroit team. Marinelli was their coach. Their 'season' -- that is to say the period of time during the year wherein they play their games -- is over. And for the first time in the history of the sport their local team lost sixteen games and didn't win one.)
And since I am mentioning sporting news, I must note what was so well said in this post titled "An Epic Day For Schadenfreude."
The Cowboys are in the process of being, to quote Emmitt Smiff, “blowed out.” Ben Roethlisberger was hurt (grrrr), the Patriots are on the verge of being eliminated with an 11-5 record. The Bucs lost to the Raiders. Detroit is 0-16. And the era of Favre is drawing to a close.(If you don't follow the sport I can't explain. It is too esoteric.
