Some Detroit fans opened their mailboxes on Monday and saw something unusual mixed in with their Christmas cards: Lions playoff tickets.
One problem: The Lions were eliminated from playoff contention on Sunday.
The Lions began selling playoff tickets when they were in first place in the NFC North late in the season, and the team mailed out some of the tickets last week. Now those tickets are collector’s items, worthy of a place alongside the Lions’ 2013 calendar as a memento of what a lousy existence it is to be a Lions fan.
Fans who bought playoff tickets will have the money credited toward their 2014 season tickets. Of course, some fans will be so disgusted by the Lions’ late-season collapse that they no longer want 2014 season tickets.
Lol at the lions sending us playoff tickets hahahahaha http://t.co/Cm4GFsXO4E—
