Best Reason to Hope This Year is the Detroit Lions Season 

Because, statistically speaking, this has to happen eventually ... right?

The law of averages suggests a rare random event will eventually play out, so, fuck it: this year has to be the Detroit Lions' year. Why? We don't know! Because! We figure between Matthew Stafford getting married and the Lions getting a new coach in Jim Caldwell, it's a hopeful time. But even if it doesn't come together, Ford Field will remain bursting at the seams with a sold-out crowd for every home game this year. And if our Lions fail, fans will adamantly remain supportive of their cursed favorite team, crying, 'Just wait till next year!'

(Sorry, no information is currently available for other years in this same award category.)
