view - The Ice StormDetroit Lions Stadium
On October 14, 2006, four brave souls neglected travel bans, snow advisories, and fuel shortages to venture forth from the City of Buffalo as it was pounded with twenty-seven inches of snow.  At the time I was resting comfortably in my apartment awaiting their arrival, but these young men would not be deterred from watching their beloved Buffalo Bills LOSE (what an embarrassment) to the lowly Oh and Five Detroit Lions.   Who knew we could be this bad?

Ford Field is a fantastic, indoor, state of the art, facility.  The seats are spacious, the concessions are reminiscent of Old European delis, and the Detroit Lions fans have a kick-ass Detroit Lions fight song.  I have to admit, I thought it was very corny the first time I heard the announcer's baritone voice over the loudspeaker belting out the words to "Gridiron Heros". However, by the fourth time the Detroit Lions scored on the horrendous Bills Defense, I was humming the tune and screaming "Go Lions" at the end of the Detroit Lions Fight Song with the rest of the fans.  Gridiron Heros actually dates back to the late 1930's and is one of the oldest fight songs in the NFL. 

Arrive early before the game as there is very little tailgating in the city of Detroit.  Fans seem to gather at the Hockey Town Cafe for pregame libations or at one of the other local watering holes dotted throughout the city.  The Hockey Town Cafe is located just across the street from the stadium.  It features an open air rooftop porch for you to enjoy the company of locals and some decent food as well, but it's no replacement for the days of old, tailgating outside the Pontiac Silverdome.   Hopefully, as the team improves, things will pick up in downtown Detroit on game day as well.

The Food
Ford Field's stadium fare is not much to brag about.  Fans enjoy the standard overpriced concessions available throughout the rest of the league.  But for those interested in inebriation, Detroiters recommend the $12 yard of layered frozen margarita and Strawberry daiquiri mixes.  One is all you need to weather the storm of the inevitable loss.
