Santa and his reindeer showed up in Motown early. It has been a rough decade in Detroit, so Santa had to double and triple check his list to make sure that Lions should get some sparkle over coal. Despite all of the naughtiness from Ndamukong Suh, Santa decided that overall the Lions were nice.
I agree. The Lions are really nice. They only needed to win on Saturday to clinch their first playoff spot since 1999. With that in mind, they demolished the San Diego Chargers and extinguished their hopes of going to the playoffs. Lions QB Matthew Stafford, had three touchdown passes with three different receivers, tight end Brandon Pettigrew, running back Kevin Smith and super star wide receiver Calvin Johnson, known as Megatron. The Lions are so nice that Megatron matched a single-team record with 15 touchdown receptions.
So, after years of coal in December, Santa finally gave Lions fans a little sparkle during the holidays. It must feel like the most wonderful time of the year in Detroit.
