It was a cold October night in 1958 when the late, great Bobby Layne was sipping on a tall glass of whiskey and heard the news. The hall of fame quarterback was being shipped out to the Steel City. After bringing home three championships, he foretold the future of the franchise with these parting words, “the Lions will not win for 50 years.”
The 50 year curse still lives on to this day. Every year, on opening day and the night of the draft we will craft a cure for our misery. We will lay down one barrel of bourbon that will rest until the day our city becomes champions once again.
