Taste of the Lions 2016

First of all, this was the best Detroit Lions event I have ever attended. It was not cheap almost as much as the tickets but worth every penny.


Met up with Detroit Lions President Ron Wood. I told Mr. Wood the Desire of the lion fan for a winner. He seemed to agree.

I talked to Personnel man Kyle O'Brien he was shocked I knew who he was.

Met Jerry Ball. Told Jerry one of the most bitter of the many bitter days I have had as a Lions fan was when he got hurt. He agreed.

Talked to coaches Jim Bob Cooter, Kris Kocurek and Bill Sheridan. Great guys.

Best conversions- Anthony Zettel about exit 202. Deonte Gibson. I asked him about his height. He said he would overcome.

Met alum Maurice Harvey. He was shocked I knew who he was.
