Detroit Lions rookies come to play football, catch the Red Wings bug along the way | Freep

Detroit Lions cornerback Amani Oruwariye and linebacker Jahlani Tavai may not be well-versed in hockey rules, but as budding fans of the sport, the two rookies are trying to brush up on the finer points now that they live in Hockeytown and hope to attend a Red Wings game soon.

Awesome. I love when Detroit players from all the local teams are fans of each other. The Wings should absolutely invite these guys to a game soon.

If you’re not interested in football or the Lions, well, enjoy your Sunday morning coffee and get to know Wings defense Madison Bowey.
