Here’s some interesting news for a slow Saturday night.
Per this video at, the weather could be a factor on Sunday when the Redskins square off against the Lions.
At Ford Field.
“Winds will be gusting upwards of 20 miles per hour,” says the weather lady.  “That could play a big role in the kicking game at Ford Field.”
Yes, it could.  If they remove the roof from the place between now and game time.
We realize that everyone makes mistakes.  But more than one or two people surely had their fingerprints on this video.  It’s amazing that it didn’t occur to at least one of them that Ford Field is a domed stadium.

    The strength of the kicking game at Ford field may get debacled in those 20 mph winds.

    Thank you, Florio, for sharing that. It just brought some much-needed comedic relief to this Lions fan.

    She also says, “…the Redskins need to get off to a good start to stay in the hunt in the AFC East.”
    Guess what? She’s hot. I forgive her.

    old man ford’s farts go a long way.

  5. empty13 says: Oct 25, 2008 10:16 PM

    that field was another mistake. they should have built an outdoor stadium.
    it would have made even these crappy lions teams tougher for late season games at chicago/green bay. and for teams like this year’s visitors… jax, tb, tn, n’awlins.

    They better keep the doors shut then.

  7. LiveNBreath Football says: Oct 25, 2008 10:20 PM

    So, basically, the incompetence in Detroit is not confined to field?

  8. jarfitz says: Oct 25, 2008 10:21 PM

    Thats exactly the reason I go to Jillian Barbieri for my football weather information.

    Further proof as to why women should only be seen and not heard.
    If she looked like Sandra Bernhardt she wouldnt have a job…
    Somebody tell this chick to make me a sammich…

    Just makes you shake your head.

  11. Spinner721 says: Oct 25, 2008 10:42 PM

    Did anyone else notice that she put the Redskins in the AFC East….This video should be taken town immediately. It’s completely inaccurate in almost every aspect.

  12. CameraMan says: Oct 25, 2008 10:44 PM

    Perhaps she was inferring that the roof could get blowed off.

  13. proof says: Oct 25, 2008 10:48 PM

    That’s not a gust of wind, that’s the sound of the Lions sucking.

  14. flik44 says: Oct 25, 2008 10:49 PM

    Florio… she said the “windless Detroit Lions”… sheesh… can’t you hear???

  15. MIBucs1982 says: Oct 25, 2008 10:53 PM

    Hey, give her credit, at least she’s still trying to come up with excuses for why it’s not the Lions’ fault they’re losing. That and I agree, she’s HOT, so she gets a pass as far as I’m concerned.

    is it a doomed stadium… or a domed stadium ?

  18. spyboots says: Oct 25, 2008 11:51 PM

    Not a very nice regarding women, there!

  19. sporkdevil says: Oct 26, 2008 12:10 AM

    Wow. Who has links to her other weather reports? She is HOT.

  20. Shackman says: Oct 26, 2008 12:12 AM

    I didn’t pay any attention at all to the forecast. I couldn’t tear my eyes away from staring at her…..assets.

  21. Three6Mafia says: Oct 26, 2008 12:24 AM

    she’s hot.

  22. gogobroncos says: Oct 26, 2008 12:27 AM

    She WAS really hot… what was she talking about again?

  23. vdezagiacomo says: Oct 26, 2008 12:31 AM

    Maybe Millen got to keep all the doors as part of his severance package.

  24. ehatem says: Oct 26, 2008 12:37 AM

    A couple of weeks ago she had rain and wind being a factor for a home game for the Saints. Again…Dome. They must get paid by the report and to not report on teams with domes would lose them money.

  25. packers2337 says: Oct 26, 2008 4:23 AM

    We all know these football weather ladies aren’t hired because they know anything about football.

  26. Enrage says: Oct 26, 2008 5:29 AM

    Tatum Bell took the roof when he left Detroit.

  27. DanSnyder says: Oct 26, 2008 5:54 AM

    You’d be suprised to know the most reporters dont know what they are talking about, they report, not give opinions. Unfortunately for her she can’t even do the simple job she has of reporting. Ever watch the local news or off hours? They pick reporters on charisma and not intelligence or knowledge. Its terrible when reporters start talking about any issue because most of the time you realize you know more about almost any subject they are reporting then they do.
    She’s cute and if you didnt have a clue what she was talking about she would sound really well informed, but shes not.. shes just cute
    I’m not sure which is worse, talking about how a 22 mph wind gust will affect the kicking game in a domed stadium or claiming the redskins need the win to try to stay AFC East playoff race

  28. Torc says: Oct 26, 2008 6:14 AM

    Well, the Lions suck badly enough that the fans might not let them building.

  29. brian_21 says: Oct 26, 2008 6:30 AM

    I saw her, and I fell in love.

  30. Sock_Puppet says: Oct 26, 2008 6:54 AM

    Pfft, her clothes don’t even fit right. Her jacket is waaay to big.

  31. inmymind says: Oct 26, 2008 9:52 AM

    Back to basics. WHERE IS MY DINNER!!!!?!!!!?!!!

  32. CanadaBob says: Oct 26, 2008 9:55 AM

    You guys need to get out more!

  33. Seabass417 says: Oct 26, 2008 10:18 AM

    That’s pretty funny. She may not know anything about football, but she’s reading a memorized script so the blame can only go to her producer.
    On a side note, I noticed a couple years back while I was playing Madden that I had wind in Ford Field, maybe 05 or 06. Thought that was pretty funny.
