It looks like Operation Sellout was a huge success—the Lions have announced they’ve already sold out Sunday’s game against the Jets, without the help of an extension! Admittedly, I have no idea how many tickets were snapped up by TLiW readers who weren’t going anyway—but if even one of you out there was inspired to purchase tickets by yesterday’s post, I deeply, deeply thank you. I cannot wait for Sunday!
If you missed The Knee Jerks on Monday night, Greg and Big Al were kind enough to have me on as a guest! I talked about the Lions, what inspired me to start the blog, and we also went a little bit meta about blogging, online sports reporting, and where people are going to get their sports news. I had a ton of fun—and as always, wish I had more time! Greg, if you don’t recall, kicked off Barry Week with his awesome contribution.
Finally, crucial thank Big Al, Zac at the Sidelion Report, and Phil at Mlive.com for helping spread the word about Operation Sellout. I can’t say how proud I am of this fanbase that they put their money where their heart is. The world is going to get its best look yet at just how big the bonfire’s gotten!
