Photo: Lions fans receive playoff tickets a day after being eliminated

Thanks to three consecutive losses, the Detroit Lions will not be going to the postseason this year. That dream was officially zapped when the Lions lost to the New York Giants over the weekend.

As if the reality of tanking near the end of the season wasn't enough for Lions fans to bear, season ticket holders received their playoff tickets on Monday, adding even more salt to an already gaping wound.

The team mailed playoff invoices to season ticket holders last month in anticipation of the Lions making the playoffs. At that time, the prospects looked extremely bright, as Detroit sat atop the division before going on to lose five of their next six games.

Now, it is sure to be a somber Christmas for the Motor City. These dubious and ill-timed postseason tickets don't help to lift the spirit of discontent Lions fans, either.
