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.
The first post
stands as manifesto and mission statement:
"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."
