The Detroit Lions have been a part of the NFL since 1934.

Starting out in Portsmouth, Ohio, they moved to the corner of Michigan and Trumbull at old Navin Field (later Briggs, later Tiger Stadium) until moving to the suburbs in 1976 at the Silverdome in Pontiac.

Moving back downtown to Ford Field, the Lions have been a great burden and brought little joy to the Greater Michigan sports landscape.

Now you can celebrate the Lions long futility by purchasing a Detroit "Conference Participant" Shirt!

Show your support for the Kitty Cats involvement in the NFC North since it's inception! How can you not enjoy the fact the Lions have played (poorly) in the NFL?

;) This story at SBNation.com spells out the fun and sarcasm. And there's a link to buy said shirts. As another Super Bowl is being played with Michigan representation, here's one way to throw support for the team that used to ahve Matt Millen as their leader. Another shirt idea? #DetroitFootballFail...since 1957.
