Leave the Lions alone! They belong on Thanksgiving!

I don't care how bad the Lions get and how many media critics and fans complain about their perpetual grandfather clause into early afternoon on Thanksgiving.

They should stay there forever, period. This dude from Detroit summed it up nicely, in a column that ends with this:

"Everybody gets it in Detroit. This isn’t good football. Thanksgiving is just one more occasion when this city stoops over, sticks a bull’s-eye on its backside and coaxes another swift kick. But you cannot attach a price tag — or even a win-loss record — on that bond between past and present or between father and son."
