Did you see the Detroit Lions game yesterday? Yeah, I didn’t think so. The good news is they won; the bad news is that you probably didn’t get to see them win their first game since December 23, 2007.
If you live in metro Detroit and weren’t one of the 40,896 fans at Ford Field you missed out on watching a Lions win. The NFL blackout rule meant that the game wasn’t televised in our area.
And that really sucks. The fans missed out on the excitement of the win and normal Monday morning quarterback chatter. You won’t hear the normal football talk, “Oh my God, did you see that play?” Nope.
I know, they didn’t win the Superbowl. It’s just one game but it broke a 19-game losing streak. They got the monkey off their back. Let’s move on, let’s celebrate! After all, it has been a long time since we heard the phrase, “The Lions win!”
What better way to celebrate than with free pizza?
Shields Restaurants are giving away free pizza on Tuesday to celebrate the win over the Washington Redskins. This deal is for dine in only, from 5pm-8pm on Tuesday, September 29th. The four Shields locations are in Troy, Southfield, Macomb Township, and Rochester Hills.
So, what do you think of the NFL blackout rule? And how about that win?
