Rod Marinelli And Rob Parker Give Us An Amazing Lesson

The NFL’s Detroit Lions are the worst team in professional history.  I can say this and not feel like I will incur the wrath of any die hard Detroit Lions fans out there, because I am a lifelong one myself.  They lost their 15th game this past Sunday and are one win away from doing what no other team has ever done in the modern era – go winless in a season.  Probably the most un-manliness thing in pro-sports.  Good times.

Profiles In Manliness:  Gordie Howe
