Ep: 245 – Detroit Lions & Minnesota Vikings Post Game Show – The Detroit Lions Podcast

In this live episode of The Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris is joined by YouTube Slowlights hero, Andy “Sandman” Morse for a tough show about the Detroit Lions to the Minnesota Vikings. As always we take your calls, and this week the callers bring a lot to the show. Don’t miss Ken’s call at the end – you might think the show is ending, but don’t tune out, you’d be all wrong to miss that call.

Detroit Lions Podcast Talks About The Late Season Preseason

This was finally a game where everyone seemed ready to accept that the team that we were putting on the field wasn’t healthy enough to compete against one of the better teams in the NFL.

We also discuss a little bit about Lions fandom and what motivates people to watch a team that is likely to continue doing poorly this year. Chris tells a funny story about escalation of commitment, and more. We don’t excuse the team or its leadership, but we make talking about the Lions a lot more fun than anyone else. There’s something good for the soul in that…

With a mixture of pre-recorded shows, live & recorded phone-ins, and live post-game broadcasts - this is his slice of Honolulu Blue heaven.
