Well, rather on how the loss made me feel.
Before the loss, I admitted to friends and family that this was the most optimistic I’ve felt about the Lions in MANY years. However, being a " true" Lions fan (read:cynic) I thought they would play great for a few games and then Stafford would break a leg or some other important cog would be lost for the season.
But this being the Lions they always find a way to lose that you don’t expect and I truly didn’t expect them to lose by just standing around waiting for someone to hand them the win.
Well, I tried on the optimistic crown for a week, and it turns out it just itches too much. I’m going back to being the grumpy Smurf, whatever the heck his name was. At least for now, lol.
