    Two Bats Had Sex In The End Zone During The Lions-Ravens Preseason Game

    …and people think preseason games are meaningless. On Saturday, two bats did something the Detroit Lions couldn’t do in the end zone and that was score against the Baltimore Ravens.

    Calvin Johnson: ‘Retirement Would’ve Been Hard If Lions Were Contenders’

    Retired Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson is beginning to open up about why he suddenly decided to retire this offseason at age 30. His reasons on retiring sound a lot like what former Lions running back Barry Sanders said when he suddenly retired. In an interview with ESPN’s Michael Smith, Calvin Johnson had this to say: “If we would’ve […]

    Former Lions WR Calvin Johnson: “I’m Not Coming Back” (Video)

    Former Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson abruptly retired after just nine seasons in the NFL, much like former running back Barry Sanders did way back in 1999, both at the top of their game.

  • Detroit Lions Draft DT Who Can Tackle a Tree (Video)

    Detroit Lions Draft DT Who Can Tackle a Tree (Video)

    I’m not sure if his ability to tackle a tree is why the Detroit Lions chose to draft Penn State defensive tackle Anthony Zettle, but I’m sure this video didn’t hurt the 6’4″, 258-pounder’s cause: Meet the Lions 6th round pick, @anthonyzettel (via @dudas_5, H/T @houseofhighlights) A video posted by Bleacher Report (@bleacherreport) on Apr […]

    DeAndre Levy Responds to Jim Irsay’s CTE Comments With Swift Instagram Jab

    Yesterday, we were treated to Jim Irsay‘s ridiculous comments regarding the issue (or, as he believes, non-issue) of brain injuries in football—you know, the one where he compares CTE to taking aspirin. Today, we’re treated to DeAndre Levy‘s rebuttal, which came via Instagram and was pretty great: Frequent trips to the pharmacy makes you a […]

    Pizza Hut Sent Calvin Johnson a Retirement Pizza (Pic)

    Despite being one of the best wide receivers of our time, Calvin Johnson has never been a very flashy guy. While his many touchdowns were featured on many highlight reels, his touchdown celebrations rarely received the same attention due to their tame nature. And when he decided to retire from the NFL last week, after nine […]
