Tigers, Lions Mingling at Games Lately
It’s not just Goff getting the royal treatment from the Tigers lately. Other players have Once again this past weekend, that was the case as the Tigers hosted a major party for their fans. They invited players from other Detroit teams to join in on the fun, and the Lions’ representatives were punter Jack Fox as well as defensive lineman Romeo Okwara.

Tigers Playing Well to Start MLB Second Half
If the team asks Lions players to come back in the future, it will be with good reason. The Tigers managed to win with all of the Lions players in attendance this week, and have enjoyed a solid start to the second half of the season with a series sweep of the struggling Minnesota Twins with another strong performance this week against the Texas Rangers. Thus far this season, the Tigers have struggled to a record that is well under the .500 mark, but the team looks like they have some exciting young talent in the pipeline that could provide hope for the future. During the second half of the season, that is what folks should be watching for out of the Tigers. They may not win every game, but they compete. It’s not unlike the same spirit the Lions wish to have for 2021 and beyond when they take the field for a new season.
Goff hopes to bottle up that same spirit and capitalize on it for the 2021 season.
