Several (OK, more than several) Lions fans have pointed out to us over the past two days a new Facebook page that serves as a petition for the franchise to honor long-time beat writer Tom Kowalski with a uniform patch.
And so in order both to do the right thing and to stem the tide of emails asking us to mention the petition, we’re mentioning the petition.
We’ll even go one step farther: We encourage all of you to click on it and “like” it.
We also encourage the Lions to think of a fitting way to honor a man who spent 30 years covering a team that hasn’t been very good for many of them. The ultimate honor, of course, would be to win the Super Bowl.
We’ll settle for a helmet decal.
