Detroit Lions Ndamukong Suh is known as one of the fiercest players in the NFL, but the defensive tackle showed he has a softer side when him and teammate Jahvid Best saved a Detroit high school’s Homecoming.
On Monday, Detroit’s Frederick Douglas College Preparatory Academy’s locker room was burglarized. The intruders stole over 20 helmets, pads and cleats, leaving the football team with no equipment to practice with and the possibility of having to
forfiet the school’s Homecoming game.
Suh, Best, Quicken Loans, Boby Max Ford, Xenith Helmet, and two Detroit suburban high schools raised money and donated new equipment for the Hurricanes. The new gear was hand delivered by none other than Suh and Best before the game, which Douglas went on to win, 50-0.
“I was so pleased and thankful … because most of these young men, to have things taken from them, it was very personal,” said athletic coordinator Michael Hamlett.
The Detroit Lions are 4-0 for the first time since 1980 after over coming a 24-point deficit against the Dallas Cowboys. Looks like America’s team was just defeated by America’s sweetheart.
Earlier this morning TJC reported the NY Giants Minnesota Vikings game would be postponed to tomorrow night due to unsafe conditions from heavy snow on the Vikings’ Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome. Well now, the Metrodome has collapsed from all the snow, and the game has been moved to Detroit’s Ford Field, home to the Detroit Lions. One person who is happy about the unfortunate circumstances is Brett Favre, since people are now finally talking about another Metrodome.
UPDATE: Fans who want to attend tomorrow’s game in Detroit can either do so by redeeming ticket stubs from today’s Lions vs. Green Bay Packers game, or tickets will be given away for free at the Ford Field box office tomorrow at 9am.
Athlete Dougie videos never get old. During the Detroit Lions Chicago Bears game, Lions QB Drew Stanton celebrated his first ever NFL touchdown by doing the Dougie in the end zone. Stanton got the start as Matthew Stafford still suffers from a shoulder injury. Too bad for Stafford, the Lions lost to the Bears, 24-20 and sly dance moves don’t count for fantasy points.
LeBron was quick to defend his newly engaged fiance and baby mama Savannah Brinson with whom he has been with since high school. Just like week, Kardashian was linked back with Miles Austin. Kardashian was allegedly in attendance to cheer on Austin as the Dallas Cowboys took on the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Cowboys lost to the Jaguars 35-17 and are now 1-6… with the Detroit Lions having a better record.
