Detroit store gets roasted for selling Rams gear ahead of Super Bowl

Detroit Lions fans will be cheering for Matthew Stafford, their longtime former quarterback, in the Super Bowl this year. But one local store may have taken it a step too far.

A video went viral on Friday of Pro Sports Zone, a store in Detroit, proudly selling “Detroit Rams” gear ahead of Super Bowl LVI. The two teams’ logos were spliced together on shirts with a Rams head on a Lions body.

Many fans, including local Detroit fans, were not happy to see it. Some shared their outrage while others cracked jokes.

The Lions faithful will definitely be happy for Stafford, who was their QB for the previous 12 seasons, if he manages to win a ring this season. But it is a stretch to say that they will suddenly be identifying as Rams fans this year, especially since Stafford is the only former Lion of note on the Rams.

At least these “Detroit Rams” shirts are not quite the most insulting thing the Lions fanbase has had to endure during the postseason.
