Lets be honest. There wasn't much to cheer about if you're a Lions fan. From the opening kickoff, returned 105 yards for a touchdown, the Vikings sideline was filled with perma-grins. Jared Allen was his normal laughing and joking self, and even Adrian Peterson, who is usually all "game face", was smiling.
From a heckling standpoint, it's hard to poke fun at the other team when they are winning. So, you have to just pick a player and have fun. Unfortunately for Chris Kluwe, we chose him. Now some may know him as the bassist for Tripping Icarus, or the NFL punter who made recent headlines in his open letter to Maryland state delegate Emmett C. Burns, Jr. in defense of same-sex marriage. After watching the attached video, you will now know him for his butt.
Now that's how you stay loose during the game. 'Til the next time we head Forward Down The Field…GO LIONS!
