At long last, the secret of why anyone would root for the Detroit Lions is revealed!

I feel I'd be remiss if I didn't post at least one of the hilarious Pure Michigan spoofs on Flint Expatriates. Warning: Very Strong Language. And if you're a Detroit Lions fan, I just wouldn't watch this.


  1. I dont like strong verbal language that suggest gross sexual acts and suicide. That offends me and I think you should take it down from your site. Maybe i am a little bitter.

  2. Rob, thanks for the comment. I was unsure about posting this, given the largely successful attempts to keep swearing, personal attacks and, more or less, almost all over-the-top political attacks off the site.

    I've had about 20 different people email me links to the Pure Michigan spoofs, so I decided it would be good to run one with a warning. I picked the Lions because it was a Sunday and they were playing. Not sure if it was a great decision.

    On the other hand, they beat Washington the day it ran! Maybe I should run it every Sunday.

  3. I am sure people have worse ways to get the Lions to win.. lol


Thanks for commenting. I moderate comments, so it may take a while for your comment to appear. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at
