The sweet, sweet sounds of Motown’s NFL fandom are thanks to radio exec George Richards, who mounted the charge and brought the Lions (formerly the Spartans) to rock Detroit in 1934.
More than 80 years later, the team makes fall Sundays in Detroit the best day of the week. And when it comes to traditions, no team does Thanksgiving better than the Blue and Silver, taking Ford Field for 76 years and counting. That makes the tradition older than any across 24 NFL franchises. Pay homage.
