Detroit Rejoice!

This morning I got an email from my husband regarding a hot rumor. The subject line:
:-D :-D :-D I hope this is true!!!!
What could reduce my plentifully manly husband to the emoticonography of a 14-year-old girl?

The rumor, soon proved true, that in a glimmer of hope that in response to the cries and prayers and public displays of agony of many, Detroit Lions General (mis)Manager Matt "31-84" Millen has at long last been fired.

Hope is restored that the Curse of Bobby Layne may finally be coming to an end.

The season, however, probably remains lost. (See, I am finally learning to lower my expectations.) But we still feel a lot better!

Ahh, memories . . .

How'd all that work out?

Oh yeah. Joey got fired (again) today too. Mmm, irony.
