I suppose that if I was a Lions fan and my team had never won a Super Bowl, hadn't won a division in 17 years and hadn't broke .500 since Y2K, that I might consider walking some to support my team. But 425 miles? I love the Bears, but this guy is insane.
Joseph Paquette would walk a million miles for his favorite team, the Detroit Lions.
not quite a million, but at least 425 -- the distance from his home in
Munising, Mich., to the Lions' training camp in Allen Park.
63, departed Sunday on his Munising-to-Allen Park walking journey to
show support for the Lions, according to the Mining Journal of
"It would be nice for Lions fans to get word of what I'm doing so
they could come out and walk a mile or so with me to show their
support," Paquette told the Mining Journal about his favorite team,
which has won just two games the past two seasons.
Paquette's goal is to walk 25-30 miles a day, and he estimates that he will complete the journey in 16-21 days.
Paquette is also still hoping that Barry Sanders changes his mind about that early retirement, still thinks Joey Harrington will be a good NFL QB and swears that Scott Mitchell was a great acquisition.
Cutler started 7-on-7 drills completing 5 of 6 passes, including a deep
one down the sideline to Earl Bennett. Cutler ended practice 6 of 8
running the two-minute drill out of the shotgun from his own 35. The
drive ended with a 2-yard end-zone hookup with Greg Olsen on the fade, a nice one-handed catch.
Mr. Personality: As Olsen was surrounded by reporters after practice, Cutler casually walked by and said, "Two hands, two hands."
