The Detroit Lions, like many residents in the suffering city, were robbed yesterday. The first Sunday of the NFL season featured the Detroit Lions facing division foes in the Jay Cutler Era, the Chicago Bears. The game was surprisingly good, until a blown call ruined what should have been a comeback win breaking a 20-game road losing streak.
Part of baseball is the margin of error brought on by the human error of the human officials. Friday night’s Twins at Yankees ALDS playoff game was dominated by calls so bad that it was only fair to assume the umpires were on a kamikaze mission to kill the game and their careers in the process.
