hopeful.

Standard

to say that the detroit lions

have not played like a top tier team in a long time

is an understatement. 

I found this display

in the middle of a big box hardware store

with no explanation

and loved the artistic statement it made. 

this still somewhat hopeful

and ever loyal fan

has been waiting quite a long time for a win.

that is strong and that is funny.

team spirit.

Standard

first game of the year

and lots of excitement buzzing around town

most everyone embraces it

even the new arrivals on campus

on sorority/frat row

and the car wash

that stays open and works

while also hosting tailgaters

complete with

buses, games, food, and mini bar

now that’s team spirit.

on the night before

the Barcelona – Napoli soccer match

takes place in the stadium

the streets close to cars

and open 

only to people

who celebrate  

with food and drinks

and especially music

 as martha reeves

belts it out

under the stars

for the happy crowd.

who knew that ordering

a new grocery delivery service 

would lead to a commercial

and

a visit from

detroit lions’ player, golden tate

when he turned out to be

the surprise delivery guy?

another fun life adventure

for my middle daughter h, and her family.
