It has been just over two months of rest since the last season ended and Sundays have not been the same for Lions that were used to connect with their old boys and have a good time every Sunday. "Sundays have been weird, I would wake up sometimes and wear my kit to go play football only to be reminded minutes later by my wife that the new season has not yet began" one Lion (name withheld) told the reporter.
