Celebratory headlines finally used for Lions

Few words describe the joy of a Lions playoff berth better than "Hallelujah," which was our headline on Sunday's sports front. I believe we also used it when the Lions snapped their losing streak stemming from the epic 2008 season. Cliff Avril's touchdown celebration says it all, as the Lions snapped snapped a 10-year playoff drought. 
At left, you see how the Detroit Free Press played on the holiday angle and at right is their front page. (The Detroit News and Free Press publish a shared Sunday edition.)
