Detroit Lions: 'Twas the night before training camp, when all through Motown ...


’Twas the night before training camp, when all through Motown
Every Lions’ fan was wondering, will Delmas be up or be down
The helmets were hung in the lockers with care
In hopes that Ndamukong Suh would soon be there

The fans were all nestled after taking their meds
While visions of the playoffs danced in their heads
And Nate in his LionBlood tee and Matthew in his Tigers cap
Had their brains hard at work, it was no time for a nap

Then out on the practice field there arose such a clatter
Mayhew sprung from his office to see what was the matter
Away to the window he flew like a flash
To see 90 Lions he was paying lots of cash

The sun on the breast of the early morning dew
Gave the luster of wonderment to every fan, not a few
Then who to his wondering eyes would he see
But Calvin and Riley, Darius and Zigggg-gy

With a new back named Reggie so lively and quick
Mayhew knew in a moment this team could click
They stretched and they ran and they sweated all day
He didn’t whistle or shout, he had little to say

Now Fairley, now Calvin, now Tulloch and Houston
On Ryan! On MIkell! on Dom and Burleson!
To the top of the North, to the top of the NFC
Hang on for a wild ride, it’s the norm you see

After strolling the sidelines and chatting with Jim
Mayhew knew camp was key, his hopes were not dim
I heard him exclaim as he walked off the sod
“No comment today” - then he gave a nod

It's the koolaid thing, Darin. The good ship Paulapop has sadly become addicted. A pity. She once showed such promise. Alas.
