It's well past time for Lions fans to start looking ahead to 2013. With injuries, ineffectiveness, dirty play, and Titus Young just fucking up everywhere, it hasn't been a season to remember in Detroit. So here's to future sucess! This holiday season, buy the Lions fan in your life this 2013 wall calendar...with Titus Young on the cover.
The creators of the calendar didn't have many recent images to choose from, since the highly touted Young only has 33 catches all season. In May, he was sent home after sucker-punching Louis Delmas. Last month against the Packers, he twice purposefully lined up in the wrong position, then got into a shouting match with OC Scott Linehan. The Lions sent him home for the Thanksgiving game, and when he returned to practice the next week, he was forced to do his stretches in the back row. After being sent home again, the Lions finally put him on injured reserve, ending his season and, presumably, his time in Detroit.
But the good thing about wall calendars is that when you put it on your wall, you don't have to look at the cover anymore! Unfortunately, the inside isn't much better. Mr. January is Aaron Berry, who was released during training camp. Mr. February is Jahvid Best, who hasn't played all year with concussion issues, and may never play again. Mr. March is Nate Burleson, who is almost a lock to be cut after the season. Same for Mr. November, Kyle Vanden Bosch. As CBS Detroit points out, it probably should have just had photos of Calvin Johnson and Matthew Stafford over and over.
There's more! Despite being a 2013 calendar, it features the Lions' 2012 schedule. And as an added bonus, there's a section on Super Bowl history; the Lions have never been to the Super Bowl. This is the perfect gift for Lions fans who hate themselves. So, this is the perfect gift for Lions fans.
