I've been riding that Detroit Lions train for the past few years and it hasn't paid off yet. Hopefully this year...

I think Carolina will win it all.
But no one expected the Steelers
to win last year, did they? So
we'll just have to watch the games.
Won't that be fun? I can't wait!
Let the games begin!! Finally,the
NFL is playing again (I don't
count the preseason.)
