Shortly after the beginning of the war in Afghanistan.....
...the news showed a clip of a young Afghani man in the midst of a battle in a city. The young man grabbed a grenade and hurled it some 70 yards into the fifth-floor window of a building, blowing the building up and saving several American soldiers.

A scout for the Detroit Lions happened to be watching the news that night, and saw what the young man did. The scout spent the next two years tracking down the man, and finally found him, signing him up to a contract with the Lions.

The young man proved to be a stellar quarterback, and he led the Lions to their first Super Bowl victory. After the game, the young man called his mother. "Mom," he said, "I've won the Super Bowl!"

"Go away," she replied. "You are not my son!"

"What do you mean, mother? I've won the biggest game of the year. I've accomplished so much."

"Look at us: I can't walk to the market without getting mugged. There are gun shots and sounds of violence round the clock. Your brothers must escort your sister wherever she goes to keep her from being raped. Life is hell!

 Why did you ever make us move to Detroit???"
