Barry Sanders wore a bemused expression on his face during Saturday’s annual Shenandoah Apple Blossom Festival Sports Breakfast.
It was the same somewhat surprised, slightly touched look Sanders had displayed just a night before in front of a packed house of NFL football fans at Radio City Music Hall in New York City as he announced the Detroit Lions’ second-round pick.
Detroit Lions: The Lions needed help on the offensive line and the secondary, and added another first-round defensive tackle, Nick Fairley, with the No. 13 pick. On paper, pairing Fairley with Ndamukong Suh on the defensive line seems scary for opposing QBs.
Zac Snyder got hooked on the Lions after his dad took him to a Monday Night Football game against the Los Angeles Raiders in 1990. The show put on by Barry Sanders and Bo Jackson that night was only surpassed by what Zac could do with Barry in a game of Tecmo Super Bowl.
