If it works, you can call it a “once in a blue moon” occurrence.
Lions center Dominic Raiola has been in the NFL 13 years, and he’s never enjoyed a win at Lambeau Field. And after so long, he’s grown a little weary of one of the Green Bay traditions — fans mooning opposing buses on their way out — and is thinking about a little payback.
“Going there — I go before the buses go there — maybe I should go moon somebody this week on the way there in the car that we take early,” Raiola said, via Carlos Monarrez of the Detroit Free Press.
“Well, usually you’re [ticked] off when you leave there because you don’t win. ‘Let me out of this [bleeping] bus.’ Yeah, you get mooned. It’s like, ‘Get me the [expletive] out of this bus so I can go put my hands on somebody.’ ”
That last part was a joke — lest anyone think the Lions to be “thugs.”
But you have to wonder if Raiola will celebrate Randy Moss-style if the Lions can break a streak that’s been going since 1992.
