DETROIT (WXYZ) - Diehard Lions fans have endured one disappointing season after another but this time Danny Metzger knew things would be different. Six months ago he placed a $100 bet in Las Vegas and if the Lions go all the way, that $100 will turn into $4,200.00 for Metzger who now lives in Dallas, Texas.
On Saturday, the Lions claimed a spot in the playoffs with their win over the San Diego Chargers.
Chris Turner took relatives down to the pro-shop at Ford Field on Monday, looking for items to show their dedication to the Lions. Turner said, “It's an outstanding time to be a Lions fan. It’s been a long time coming, hasn’t it?”
