Wants Lions on TV

To the Journal editor:

OK, I know that the Detroit Lions haven’t won anything since the mid 1950s. But the last time I checked, the Upper Peninsula still is a part of Michigan, and not Wisconsin.

And I know that typically people up here want nothing to do with downstate and vice versa. But Detroit is our team, not the Packers. I think it is a travesty that the networks in this region have chosen to ignore the Lions fans while falling over backwards to accommodate the Packer fans up here.

Even though they are perennial losers, there are still die hard fans up here that would like to see all the games on TV like the Packers are.
