Hello to all Detroit Lions fans

I was born and raised in Detroit and grew up watching the Detroit Lions. We moved to the upper peninsula 28 years ago; and, I can't believe how many people here choose the Packers over the Lions. I always ask them why they don't follow their own state's team. Anyway, I am so happy to see some Lions fans on MyLot. Write and introduce yourselves. My name is Frances.

Another Lions fan in the UP... Yay!!!!!!!!!!! *giggles* It amazes me too how many people up here seem to believe they are Cheeseheads. *sighs* We're not in Wisconsin, people. I'm actually not from Michigan at all originally, but my husband is from around Cadillac and is a diehard Lions fan, and I grew up in Kentucky, so I didn't really have a team. And after watching with my hubby and learning about the players and the team's history, I've definitely become a real Lions fan myself, not just one by proxy. Mmm, I'm Lecanis, and I'm in Houghton. :)

That's so cool. We are practically neighbors (lol). I'm in Calumet; originally from Detroit itself. Glad to have another Lions fan so close; those Packer Backers are everywhere. (lol)
