A warm welcome? Not so much. Full-on Detroit? Absolutely.

With one half of Super Bowl LVIII decided, it was the Detroit Lions' turn to take the field Sunday afternoon, with their eyes set on the sport's biggest stage.

As the San Francisco 49ers welcomed in the underdog, it was Detroit who came out swinging early on, both on the field and off.

Detroit music icon and legend Eminem was, of course, in the stands for the NFC Championship Game out in sunny California. You wouldn't dare bet against Marshall Mathers missing this one. He was there, and he was as loud and proud as ever.

Early on Sunday afternoon, Jared Goff was seen wearing an Eminem t-shirt to the big game. And to return the favor, Eminem was seen in the stands giving 49ers fans a welcome only he could bestow, and it was absolutely epic.

Eminem embraced all of Detroit with one simple gesture, and fans have to love it.

I mean, why wouldn't they? Lions fans deserve this. For a team that's never been to a Super Bowl and being this close to reaching the pinnacle, the fan base, far and wide, should be allowed a bit of arrogance.

And of all people to lead the way in this effort, it had to be Marshall.

The Lions playing in their first NFC Championship Game in over 30 years calls for more than just a celebration. This has become a movement. The Lions have become, dare I say it? America's team.

These aren't your same-old Lions. America should understand that by now. This team isn't just a fun story. They are legitimate, and I think the nation is finally starting to realize that.

Going from a team that had gone 0-16 back in 2008, to 3-12-1 in 2019, to 5-11 in 2020 and then watching Dan Campbell take over in 2021, these Lions have come a long way. It's been a journey. Detroit is finally relevant again, and this is a much different feel than when the 1991 squad was blown out in that Championship Game.

Embrace it, Detroit. Your guy Marshall is loving every minute of it, and you should be too.
