LMAO! Metro Detroit family begs for attention by ‘divorcing’ Detroit Lions



The Detroit Lions have not been a great football team this year. Hell, the Detroit Lions have not been a great football team for my entire life.

But no matter what, I will always be a fan of the team. THAT is what a true fan does.

Unfortunately, that’s not the case for one family from St. Clair Shores, MI as Nathan and Christy Carpo have made the decision to ‘divorce’ the Detroit Lions.

[After you are finished shaking your head or laughing, feel free to read on. After all, these people need your attention]

The family claims they have had enough of the Lions and they do not want their children to have to suffer as they have.

From Click on Detroit:

“Enough is enough,” Christy Carpo said. “Football wasn’t fun anymore.”

She said the dating phase was lovely.

“Barry Sanders era, all that good stuff — I got positives,” Christy Carpo said.

But the relationship took a turn and became a vicious cycle.

“It’s the same old stuff over and over and over again,” she said.

The Carpos said the 0-16 season was a low point, but the 2018 campaign has been the breaking point.

Nathan Carpo has been a Kansas City Chiefs fan for awhile, so the family is switching allegiances from Honolulu blue to red. The couple said it’s best for the children.

“We don’t want them to have 28 years of disappointment,” Christy Carpo said.

On Monday, she posted on Facebook that she had decided to divorce the Lions and sell all of the family’s gear.

From Facebook:

My heart is heavy as I make this announcement. We’ve hung on for years and tried to improve this one sided relationship but its come to DIVORCE, that’s right Lions. We’re done. We’ve made the steps to commit to THE KANSAS CITY CHIEFS! I had to give up my side piece Brady as well to go into this relationship with no strings. Here’s to this new journey! GO CHIEFS!

“I posted that we’re divorcing the Lions and it went crazy,” Christy Carpo said.

To the Carpos, it’s not about the money. It’s about a better quality of life.

“I want my happy back with football,” Christy Carpo said.

The couple said the divorce is real. They won’t jump back on the bandwagon even if the Lions make a run in a few years.

Wait, Nation, this gets better!

Not only is the ‘divorce’ official [MORE LAUGHING!] but the Carpo’s are even selling all of their Detroit Lions gear on Facebook!

No, we are serious, look.





















Mr. and Mrs. Carpo,

You are 100% free to do whatever you please when it comes to rooting for the Detroit Lions, but please do us a favor.

It’s the holiday season, instead of selling your Lions’ gear, donate it to a local shelter or the Salvation Army so those in need can have something nice.

One more thing…

Enjoy rooting for the Kansas City Chiefs, a team that has one win in their last 11 playoff games.

For me, I will continue to support the Detroit Lions, even during a difficult season like we are currently witnessing.

Detroit Lions ‘All-Local’ 2019 NFL Mock Draft



This coming Thursday, the 2019 NFL Draft will officially begin.

Over the past few months, if you are anything like me, you have read literally hundreds upon hundreds of Detroit Lions’ mock drafts.

So, I figured it would be fun to think outside the box (but inside the state) to come up with what an ‘All-local’ Lions draft could look like.

Check it out.

Round 1 – Devin Bush Jr. (LB) Michigan or Rashan Gary (DL) Michigan

Round 2 – Justin Layne (CB) Michigan State or David Long (CB) Michigan

Round 3 – Sean Bunting (CB) Central Michigan or Chase Winovich (DL) Michigan

Round 4 – Maxx Crosby (Edge) Eastern Michigan

Round 5 – Khari Willis (S) Michigan State

Round 6 – Xavier Crawford (CB) Central Michigan

Round 6 – Karan Higdon (RB) Michigan

Round 7 – Zach Gentry (TE) Michigan

Round 7 – LJ Scott (RB) Michigan State

Now, I know there is a .0000001% chance of this actually happening, but those players should be available when the Lions are on the clock in each round.

Bunting, who is expected to be drafted on Day 2, had 104 tackles and nine interceptions in 35 career games with the Chippewas.

Detroit Lions’ Perfect 2019 NFL Mock Draft: Final Edition

It has been a marathon but we are almost to the promised land which is the 2019 NFL Draft!

After hours and hours of research, all of the so-called “experts” will soon be unveiling their final mock draft of the season and none of them will end up being correct.

I, on the other hand, do not claim to be an expert. Instead, I am just a huge fan of the Detroit Lions who happens to believe to know what the Lions’ biggest needs are and which available prospects can fill those needs.

That being said, here is my final crack at what I believe the “perfect” Detroit Lions’ draft would look like.

*Remember, this is NOT what I think Lions’ GM Bob Quinn WILL do in the upcoming draft, it is what I think he SHOULD do.

Round 1, Pick 8

Ed Oliver (DL) Houston

I absolutely LOVE Ed Oliver if he is available when the Detroit Lions are on the clock with the No. 8 pick in the first round of the draft. Whether or not he will be available is the big question.

Oliver is an absolute beast and he could come in and make an immediate impact for a Lions defense that should be greatly improved in 2019.

From Dane Brugler (The Athletic):

STRENGTHS: Fluid body control to wriggle off blocks…excellent foot quickness and change of direction skills…shot out of a cannon with his first step…forces holding penalties due to his gap quickness…creates knockback with his speed-to-power skills…ball awareness to track through blocks…uses natural leverage to stay underneath the pads of blockers…better than expected play strength as a run defender…highly aggressive motor and effort never wanes, chasing down plays near the sidelines…dominated from the moment he stepped onto campus and leaves as a three-time All-American, collecting 54.0 tackles for loss over 33 career starts.

WEAKNESSES: Lacks desired frame and length…needs to continue and develop his body and stay in the 280-285 pound range (weighed 274 for most of his final season at Houston)…relied more on motor than brute power to overwhelm blockers in college…not a bull rusher…undeveloped approach with his hands…below- average counter measures once locked up…faced inferior competition in the AAC…several immature moments in college, including an on-field altercation with head coach Major Applewhite regarding a coat issue on the sideline — Oliver has a “young attitude” and has “growing up to do,” according to an NFL scout…missed five games as a junior with a right knee bruise (November 2018) and was limited at the combine with a strained hamstring (February 2019).

SUMMARY: A three-year starter at Houston, Oliver was one of college football’s most disruptive players over the last three years, spending most of his time at nose tackle for the Cougars. With his football flexibility and natural biomechanics, he has rare athletic ability for the position with the backfield vision to recognize play designs and disrupt from different angles. Oliver still requires time to develop his body, mind and technique at the next level. He will struggle with long-armed blockers who get to his frame and control his chest, but his energy and motor are both elite. Overall, Oliver won’t be a natural fit for every NFL scheme, but he is an ideal one-gap penetrator due to his athleticism, instincts and relentless nature, projecting best when he is lined up closest to the football.
