While the Lions are looking for a win against the Washington Redskins, the rest of you can seek out more plausible items in this week’s scavenger hunt.
The game on a TV screen in Michigan. Yes indeed, the game is regionally blacked out. That’s now six of their last seven non-Thanksgiving home games that have received the cold shoulder from Toledo to Saginaw. You’re going to need a satellite dish or some kind of super-strong X-ray vision to witness this one.
A strong arm. Note: if you find it, don’t show it to Fran Tarkenton. He will not be impressed.
The young girl whose adult beverages kidnapped her inhibitions. This scuffle was during the Lions loss to the Vikings last week:
Wait, who was that? And a Roy Williams jersey, of all attire?
I’m not entirely sure if this is the girl, but she looks young enough to be a minor and I couldn’t find anyone else booked on September 20-21 with a disorderly conduct charge except for this girl. Plus, the Wayne County Jail website doesn’t post mugshots, which is a terrible thing.
Someone picking the Redskins. Holy cow, it’s a clean sweep of Lions predictions over at CBS Sports. Now, they are picking against the spread, which is six and a half points in favor of the Gray Pride.
A longer losing streak than the 19-game one Detroit has now. Okay, this one’s a freebie. They still have a couple months of terrible, terrible football ahead of them before the collect all the infamous records.
A playoff atmosphere. The last time the Lions made the NFL postseason was 10 years ago with an 8-8 record. They quickly exited in the first round with a 27-13 to these very Redskins. The quarterbacks at the time? Charlie Batch and Gus Frerotte. The leading rusher? Greg Hill. The top wide receiver? Germane Crowell. God, that was a terrible team.
A politically correct fan complaining that the Redskins nickname is racist and that the Lions nickname is insulting to animals that are actually quite dominant in their own home.
A picture of Marty Mornhinweg that will fit inside this.
The Lions scoring the winning touchdown in the final seconds. Valid only if said touchdown is called back due to a holding penalty.
