If you have been paying attention to the world of sports as of late, you have probably at least heard the mention that Golden State Warriors guard Steph Curry does not believe in the moon landing.
Well, since taking some heat, Curry has backtracked on his original comments, saying he was just joking around.
Curry made the national headlines for his comments but we have our own athlete right here in Michigan who also had been saying that the moon landing never happened.
That’s right, according to MLive, Lions tight end Luke Willson had been “talking for weeks” about how the moon landing was staged. Now, in light of the Steph Curry situation, Wilson is also backtracking on his stance.
“Some events happened in my life, and I’m going the other way with it, bro. I might actually believe in the moon landing,” Willson said after a walk-through on Wednesday. “I don’t want to drop any names, but I met someone who knows someone, one of those deals. (I said), ‘You know, I should probably re-evaluate my stance on that.’ So I have. I now believe people were on the moon.”
What was your initial hesitation?
“America likes to lie,” Willson said. “Bay of Pigs, case in point, you know? That’s all.”
And you’re completely sold now?
“I believe that America landed on the moon,” he said. “Put it in the papers, man. Write it down.”
What about Steph Curry?
“I think that he needs to be educated,” he said. “I believe America landed on the moon. You heard it out of the horse’s mouth.”
Breaking down the Detroit Lions playoff chances and why they WILL get in
Ok, I know this is a BOLD prediction but I believe the Detroit Lions will somehow, someway squeeze their way into the NFL Playoffs.
With their win over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, the Lions moved to 5-8 and kept their slim playoff hopes alive.
In fact, following the Minnesota Vikings loss the Seattle Seahawks on Monday Night Football, those hopes actually improved as the Lions playoff chances, according to FiveThirtyEight, went from 1% to 3%!
You are probably thinking one of two things right now. 1) This guy is a complete clown if he believes the Lions are going to make the playoffs, I am not reading any more of his BS or 2) I may as well see what this clown has to say since he took the time to write it out.
Well, my hope is that you are still reading because I am about to tell you exactly why I believe the Lions WILL make the NFL Playoffs.
Lions chances…in a vacuum
Believe it or not, the Lions could find themselves in the playoffs even if they lose one of their remaining three games but the chances of that are VERY SLIM. So, my focus in this piece will be predicated on them winning out and letting the chips fall where they may.
First, let’s look at how the Lions playoff chances increase (in a vacuum) with them winning each of their remaining three games.
*Note: This does not take into account what other teams in the league do, we will look at that later. Also, I am not going to get into tie games because all of our heads would explode.
