Superbowl Lion King Meme
Adam Rifkin stashed this in Memes!
That shadowy place is the Superbowl.
No lion has ever been there.
*sigh*..... so true.. :-(
Variation on the theme:
Btw a lot of people are surprised that the Lions have never been to the Super Bowl.
Found a Wikipedia page on the subject:
As of the 2011 NFL season, every active NFL team has qualified for, and won a game in, the playoffs at least once. Teams that have never made it beyond each successive milestone are listed under the year in which they began NFL play.
Of the 14 teams that have never won the Super Bowl, 5 are expansion franchises younger than the Super Bowl itself (Bengals, Seahawks, Panthers, Jaguars, and Texans). The Falcons first season was also the start of the Super Bowl era. The 8 others (Cardinals, Lions, Eagles, Oilers/Titans, Chargers, Browns, Bills, and Vikings) all won an NFL or AFL championship prior to the AFL–NFL merger. The longest drought since a championship of any kind is that of the Cardinals, at 65 seasons.
It has been 55 years since the Lions have been to an NFL Championship.
Longest drought in the NFL.
Only 4 teams have never been to the Super Bowl: Texans, Jaguars, Browns, and Lions.
Coincidentally, the Texans, Jaguars, and Browns had three of the worst NFL records in 2013.
The Lions started 6-3 and finished 7-9. I will never forget Megatron in the snow:
THIS year the Lions have started 7-2 and are currently the #2 seeded team in the NFC.
