This fella walks into the bar wearing a Detroit Lions jersey, Lions hat, face painted in the team colors, and toting his dog along on a leash - who, incidentally is wearing a doggie sized Lions sweater and a Lions doggie helmet.
The bartender looks at this duo and tells the guy, "Hey pal, no dogs allowed in my bar."
The guy says, "Aw c'mon buddy - we're just here for the game - you're the only place around that's open and showing the game on the big screen. My dog doesn't bother anyone - he's a big Lions fan just like the rest of us. He won't cause any trouble I promise - he'll sit right next to me and watch the game - no harm at all."
"Well...alright...but the first sign of trouble out that dog and you're both out the door - no ifs, ands, or buts," said the barkeep.
"Thanks mister," replied the fan, "my dog and I really appreciate it."
So the two pull up a chair to the table and watch the kick-off. The Lions receive and take it toward the end zone for 60 yards.
Everyone is cheering when they notice the dog jump up on the table and start doing a little victory dance. The dog swings around in circles, wiggles its hips, starts shaking some pom-poms, then jumps up on the bar - running down, giving everyone 'high-fives' before doing a back flip into his seat.
"Oh my god!" said the bar tender, "That is amazing! Your dog really is a big Lions fan - WOW!. What does he do when they actually score a TOUCHDOWN?"
"How the hell am I supposed to know," said the dog owner, "I've only had him for three years."
