Your kid loves the Lions, just like you do. It’s only natural. They watch you cheer and want to be just like you, cheering on Detroit week after week hoping for a winning season. But they might not really connect with the game just yet. Do they know what downs are? What a neutral zone infraction is? Probably not. But none of that is important when you’re a fan. What’s important is a kid loving his team! So how can he truly connect with his beloved Lions? Well with his very own uniform, silly!
But how can he pick the player for his jersey? Is he old school and has a great love for Dick LeBeau (Probably a bit too old for your youngster)? Or is he still sad over the retirement of Calvin Johnson and wants to immortalize Megatron forever? Or maybe he pins his hopes on the new blood like hot rookie Taylor Decker? Or maybe your kiddo wants to forge his own path into greatness! He doesn’t want someone else’s number, he wants his own. Because he’s the one who’s going to take the Lions all the way to the Super Bowl. That might be the best answer of all. And when he’s holding that MVP trophy over his head and they ask him where he’s going next, he’s going to say “I’m going to Disneyland, and I’m bringing my wonderful parents who helped me get here.” Okay so maybe that’s a stretch, but you can dream, right? In the meantime, this Lions uniform will be the first step to greatness!
