Warrendale Burns the NFL

The Detroit Lions got screwed this past Sunday when what should have been Calvin Johnson's game winning touchdown catch was ruled an incomplete pass. It was one of those moments that truly makes me think that those in the NFL are lawyers and not athletes.

Yesterday, a group of Warrendale residents organized a protest on Facebook. We gathered at Chick's Bar (18550 W. Warren Ave.) and burned the section of the NFL rule book that was cited as the basis for overturning the touchdown catch.

While this doesn't undo the injustice that was done to the Detroit Lions, nor guarantee that it won't happen again, I have to admit that it was a lot of fun.
