[dropcap]T[/dropcap]his Thanksgiving week, we here at DSN will be celebrating the Detroit Lions all week. Yes, I know they are coming off of 2 losses, but we are Lions fans, and this is tradition. We bleed blue and silver, through good, and bad and oh how we have endured bad. Thanksgiving is our week. No matter what, we gather around the glow of the television and we root on our boys – Forward down the field, to a Lions victory (Hopefully)!
One shining light in all that bad however, is one of the greatest to ever play the game, Barry Sanders.
I grew up watching Barry. It was the best part of every Sunday. Watching his tree trunk sized legs twist and turn, his jersey slip through a defenders hands ( I heard more than one time an accusation that he greased his jersey), and he would run 40 yards to gain 5. But damn were those 5 awesome.
How many times Barry did leave us all wondering – How did he do that?
