whatwolverines: (Griff go to bed you're ridiculous)

[Oh yeah. You see that right. Most of the state is completely snowed in (and not so long after this picture was taken off the radar, the remaining counties got it too). It's just been one of those moments where it's snowed on and off in little pockets of frigid weather, until the gods of all things meteorological decided that the Great Mitten needed something extra.

Is Griff complaining? Not a bit. In fact, if anything, today should be a holiday! Next to the glorious blizzard--and drumroll please--
]

THE LIONS BEAT THE PACKERS

Indeed, yet again, you are seeing that correctly. No, no one here is ridden with the flu (well, maybe you are), or on any hallucinogens (excluding some). The Detroit Lose-All-the-Time Lions beat the Dream Team Green Bay Packers and all on the first huge snowfall of the season.

Naturally, like he should, Griffin celebrates with drinking beer en masse, wearing a Lions shirt for the first time in what feels like centuries. Detroit was already a shrieking, near-sobbing mess when the news was announced (Griff doesn't watch the Lions anymore, but he might have to now) and then hugged his dad, also for the first time in proverbial centuries. Even though he doesn't look more than seventeen or so, Detroit's drinking as well, and laughing, and generally being good-natured about something that slowly drained his vitality even more than the economy has.

Feel free to join the Michiganders in their snow-and-football celebration! They're a fun group when they're not miserable about sports!

He can relate. The Falcons who are NEVER anything to really talk about have been kicking ass and taking names this year. (... Maybe the apocalypse IS coming.)
As a matter of fact he just beat the Carolina Panthers, maintaining the best record in the National Football League.

As such he's wearing a nice red sweater. (http://www.swordfishingcentral.com/images/store/250698232847.jpg)
... yeah... That's Vintage. That's just how often Will roots for the Falcons.

Either way, Will's found his way over to Griff's with a specific point in mind. He plans on doing something special for Sven this Christmas, but he wants ideas. Gabe scares the shit out of him... He... kinda forgets about the Dakotas... Iowa well... he forgot Iowa touched Minnesota. Illinois's a dick, Indiana doesn't talk to to Will on a good day.

So that leaves Griffin. Have a nice knock on that door.

He nodded, and well... he's not half wrong. Southerners aren't so very used to it and some form of bodily injury will happen.

He made his way into the apartment, still rubbing his hands together.


Ain't he yers anyway? He waves at the boy before turning back to Griffin.
A-ah was wonderin' if ya could... help me decide on somethin'.

Hey, no worries. Wish I coulda helped more, but, y'know, I ge' referred to as the 'peninsula who thinks it's an island' sometimes. Hell, I grew up with Gabe an' Vince an' I hardly know 'em.

Not crows or doves. There's literally nothin' about a dead city bird tha' says 'I love you'.

Maybe rabbit. Ya can make him a little rabbit fur ha'! Migh' be kinda cute.

Sure ya say that. It's only a game if ya lose right?

[ Green Bay is in a mental crisis right now. A panic how he's going to have a team now one of his best players out of it with a concussion. It's a case of "FUUUUUUUUUUUU--" ]

[ Alan is imagining himself running at Tony right now, jumping up lifting him up above him and ripping him in half down the middle while his blood pools ontop of him in victory while Griff looks on in shock, awe, and horror.

Of course Green Bay just kicks at the floor. He doesn't have the strength for something like that.

[ Yeah. The used to part is the issue I imagine here with both of them. Given Green Bay was never exactly a city of class like Detroit as much as a city built on a lot of hard blue collar work. With a little stealing from all the ports in the Great Lakes as a side business.

It'd probably be the biggest sissy fight ever. Just them both leaning back and slapping each other like crazy.
