plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose
...in black and white . Five years and one day ago, I had to go to work. The temperature was bone-chilling, the snow and ice encrusted everything. Ten soul-searing minutes of bitter cold and grunty sweat, chipping and chipping away at the entombed, lifeless...

Three Cups Deep: Sailing the Gravy Boat
It is December 2nd, and the Detroit Lions are in sole possession of first place in the NFC North. They have a one-and-a-half-game lead over the Green Bay Packers, and a one-game lead (with head-to-head tiebreaker) over the Bears. The Lions face only one tea...

A Detroit Lions blog featuring passionate discussion, intelligent analysis, and statistical breakdowns of the Detroit Lions.
Introduction
The Lions in Winter started at the end of 2008, the day after the Lions finished their 0-16 season. The little blue flame of Lions fandom was almost completely extinguished, and something had to be done.

"This morning I knew that today was the day. I've pulled my hood tight, I've loaded up the sled with wood, and I've got fuel and spark to spare. I'm going to reclaim my Lions pride. I'm going to fan that little blue flame into the great big bonfire it ought to be, and nobody's going to be prouder than me when thousands are once again carrying torches to rally behind this team."
