It's not a blaze of glory, folks.
After their disastrous 0 for 16 season, Detroit Lions management figured out that the only way to end their misfortunes was with a sign of great contrition to the gods of football fate -- cheerleader human sacrifice! (Of course, this was the kind of thinking that got them to a 0 for 16 season in the first place.)
Seriously, check out the tape gag on the cheerleader. The image is from a soap opera called "One Life to Live" and involves two cheerleaders bound and gagged in a burning building. The important thing is ... that's a wraparound tape gag, look how it goes all the way to the nape of the cheerleader's neck.
Happy New Year to all and our condolences to Detroit Lions fans!
