We still have a ways to go till Thanksgiving. That’s the day the Detroit Lions annually offer up their gullets in ritual sacrifice to another football team for all of America, plump with turkey, to see. But after this year’s awful season beginning, even cheesehead fan Adam Underhill is already saying enough is enough. Will someone please step in and save the Detroit Lions? Is it possible? The Giants came back from 0-2 to win the Superbowl last year. Maybe Fanzine’s rant here will be enough of a psychic prompt to turn the tides for the motor city’s beasts of burden. Uhh…yeah…

Instead, he bows out graciously like the champion he once was. Drawings by Danny Jock.

M.S.G.: Stop Calling it The Basketball Mecca

Adam Underhill


With the Nicks screwing around for yet another season as NCAA championship history is being made throughout March Madness with cinderella upsetters like George Mason knocking off one big name seed after another, Adam Underhill asks why do we still hold Madison Square Garden in such high basketball esteem?
