  • Hello Larry

    This man SoB is probably one of the happiest men in the world his Giants are rolling going into the playoffs and the team he probably hates the most in the NFL my Lions just keep on losing and are going to go through one last primetime embarrassment on Saturday and get their asses kicked right out of the playoffs. I gotta give it to him he’s winning right now.

    • I wanted Detroit to win last night so the Giants would face them.

      Also, my most loathesome teams are (in order) Cowboys, Eagles and Patriots. Lions nowhere nearly as dissliked.

    My dislike teams, the Packers there the evil empire, Redskins, Pats, Vikings only root for them when they play the Packers.
