Lions Fan So Excited About the Playoffs He Gets Hit By A Bus

When the Giants won the 2007 NFC Title, I was so excited I jumped on top of a table in my apartment. I’m possibly the least athletic person alive so there was serious threat of injury. I could have hurt my knee or faceplanted but I was so excited I didn’t care. I like to think it was the same situation when a 21-year-old guy in Detroit was killed when he ran in front of a bus after the Lions clinched their first playoff spot in 12 years with their 38-10 win over the Chargers on Sunday.

I don’t want to make light of anyone’s death but that’s some way to go out, huh? You know the Lions were bad when their fans are so excited about making the playoffs that they’re completely disregarding their own safety. Personally, I would have waited until they advanced to the second round before I ran in front of a bus, though. Unless it was the Booty Bus.
