A Day in the Life of a Lions Fan: Their Last Win in Wisconsin

 

We all know it’s been ages since the Lions last won in Wisconsin. The Packers coach for that game is now dead for God’s sake. Here is an actual account of a Lions fan who went to that game on December 15, 1991.  He was young and full of life at the time but is now a bitter old man.

and knew better than to wear it to Port Plaza, because gangbangers would beat you down for the Starter zipper piece.

Even though Lambeau Field was only a few miles a way, he still used a

to get around this city of 96,000.

Luckily, he had a sweet
