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.


Obama's prediction could lead to loss of electoral votes in Wisconsin

This shouldn't come as much surprise to Lions fans, but the NFC North is tied with the AFC West for least representation in the Super Bowl since the divisions were realigned in 2002.

Chicago represented the NFC North in 2006 while the Raiders made an appearance in 2002.

That's pretty pathetic in these days of NFL parity. Don't you think?

Perhaps that's why the Packers at Chicago for the NFC Championship is such a huge deal in these parts and across the country -- all the way to Washington, D.C.

President Obama, who calls Chicago home, predicts the Bears will beat the Packers 20-17. So much for those 10 electoral votes from Wisconsin. Think Packers fans will forget? Probably not.

If the Bears do make it to the Super Bowl in Dallas on Feb. 6, Obama plans to attend which will lead to a logistical nightmare at the beautiful Cowboys Stadium.

Perhaps we should add an amendment to the Constitution that no sitting president is allowed to attend the Super Bowl because of the security details and the sure-fire traffic tie-ups.

Just saying.
