Hello, My name is William and I'm 37 years old. I got interested in football when I was 12 years old, my mother signed me up to atom weight football at the city run Oshawa Hawkeyes football club. It instantly was my favorite thing in the world. The closest club to me at the time was the Buffalo Bills. This was perfect timing for me to watch and cheer for them as they dominated the league and made four Super Bowl runs. My mother then got transfered to Windsor Ontario and the new Sunday game that was televised every week was the Detroit Lions. After seeing Barry Sanders break a few and leave defenders feeling and looking stupid standing by them selves as he made it look so easy, I never looked back. That was 22 years ago. I have been to Ford Field to watch games a dozen times. My brother bought us 50 yard line front row two years ago when we played the Bengals and lost in the final seconds to a field goal that one hurt as my brother let me hear about it all night at Casino Winsor Hotel. After that game we went to a bar downtown and I finally met and got Herman Moores autograph on my Lions hat. Which im proud to say is hanging up in my newly finished man cave which has a Stafford Jersey (best pick ever), Calvins jersey and all the Lions stuff I've picked up over the years, complete with Honalulu blue on my feature wall. I watch as much football as I can and celebrate two Thanks Givings every year as I book the American one off months in advance and have went to see one in person (best tail gaiting ever with great hospitality from the home fans inviting me into their own hang outs before each game). I'm writing this post (which I've never done before) because I feel like we have the best team in football right now. Coach Caldwell has done an amazing job, and with Tate III, Suh, Bush (Barry like), our veteran line backers, and secondary, as well as emerging stars I'm hoping.... praying that management can keep this team together. One more off season of gelling and we are going to be amazing. Oh ya Mathew.... first time in 22 years I've seen a PI call walked off and then taken away. NOT to mention in probably the most important game in franchise history considering our talent. Keep them together Ford family!!!!! GO Lions!!!!!!!! I'm not sure how it works but would love to be ableto communicate with the players somehow. The seven people in my house know when the Lions play because I'm your loudest fan and never say quit.
p.s. I bought a dodge Chellenger Ralleye Red Line with red stripes down the middle. Not a Mustang. But if we win next year I'm changing those stripes to Honalulu Blue. Lol.
Sincerely, William Cusson
