One thing you can count on with the Detroit Lions is that they are never, ever boring. Follow the latest news including injuries, roster moves and more here daily from Oakland Press beat writer Paula Pasche. Plus you'll find regular commentary about the team.


Every day should be Memorial Day

While it’s the Lions we follow day to day, it’s the real heroes we salute today.

Memorial Day is the perfect reminder of how thankful we should be each and every day for the brave men and women who fight so that we can remain safe and live with the freedom that is the trademark of the United States. In war, many lives are lost and many are changed drastically. There is no good way to thank them all, but on Memorial Day we try.

The Lions, along with many pro sports teams, don’t forget. At every game at Ford Field they invite members of the Armed Services who are introduced to the crowd. Most have returned from duty in Iraq or Afghanistan. Often they receive the loudest cheers of the day. And, it’s not because the Lions have been struggling, it’s because we all know who the real heroes are in our lives.

God bless them all.
