Detroit Lions

The Detroit Lions are a professional American football team based in Detroit, Michigan. The Lions compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league’s National Football Conference North division. The team plays its home games at Ford Field in Downtown Detroit.

Originally based in Portsmouth, Ohio, and called the Portsmouth Spartans, the team began to play in 1929 as an independent professional team, one of many such teams in the Ohio and Scioto River valleys. Despite success within the NFL, they could not survive in Portsmouth, then the NFL’s smallest city. The team was purchased and relocated to Detroit for the 1934 season.

The Lions have won four NFL championships, tied for 9th overall in total championships amongst all 32 NFL franchises; however, their last was in 1957, which gives the club the second-longest NFL championship drought behind the Arizona Cardinals. They are one of four current teams and the only NFC team to have not yet played in the Super Bowl.

In addition to professional football, on two occasions, they have entered Major League Baseball as an organization. Once as a corporate sponsor during World War II with multiple other teams during a temporary wartime merger known as the All-America Football Conference and once again during baseball’s 1960 expansion when they attempted to purchase a franchise

Detroit Lions Matthew Stafford

Matthew Stafford is an American football quarterback for the Detroit Lions of the National Football League (NFL).  He was taken as the first overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft by the Detroit Lions. He played college football at Georgia, where he won the Heisman Trophy in school history. From all indications, Stafford fits Detroit’s mold, which seeks a good-sized quarterback who shows exceptional arm strength and accuracy. The former high school baseball star turned down a five-figure signing bonus to play minor league baseball with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays out of high school and start his career on road to becoming an NFL QB. Locking up Stafford is another key step toward stability, although Lions GM Martin Mayhew cautioned that this doesn’t mean Detroit won’t take Texas Tech’s Graham Harrell early next month.((detroit lions matthew stafford))

Detroit Lions Hoodie

Sure the Detroit Lions have not been very good in the recent years, but they are still my favorite NFL team. I was fortunate enough to get a custom hoodie with their logo of a lion with his head cut off and a blue background that says Detroit Lions. The Detroit Lions logo makes me happy because it reminds me of when I used to live in Detroit, Michigan. The city looked so beautiful and I loved visiting the downtown area. Today I’m still proud of my boys and enjoy sporting their new hoodie from National Football League Shop.
