Seven Reasons to watch the Ford Lions Report Live: 11 a.m. Sunday on Channel 7

We kick off a new season of the Ford Lions Report Live at 11am this Sunday from Ford Field.  It's a labor of love for all of us involved as we get to mix the resources of the Lions with unprecedented access and the production expertise of WXYZ – on both sides of the camera.

Seven reasons to tune in this Sunday for the 2013 Kickoff Edition:

1. An Updated Music Library: We're marrying the magic of NFL Films footage with a new music library that will help set the tone each and every Sunday. It's majestic, it's big, it's moving and you don't want to miss it.

2. Live On Location: You can't beat the energy of the fans as they enter the stadium. Former Lions Herman Moore and Rob Rubick will join me in the Atrium at Ford Field just inside Gate A. We'll interact with the fans as we broadcast live and get you set for the season opener.

3. Jim Schwartz Wired For Sound: The Lions head coach was wearing a microphone on the sidelines during the Lions 40-9 win over the Patriots in week three of the preseason. Get an inside look at how Schwartz thinks and what he says during the game.

4. Reggie and Nate Signed a Ball: Every week during the season, Nate Burleson will interview one of his teammates and we'll feature the conversation on the Ford Lions Report Live.  This week, he chatted with Reggie Bush and after the interview, Nate and Reggie signed a football that one lucky viewer will win.  You have to watch on Sunday to get the keyword to enter.

5. Lions Legends: Jason Hanson will be honored on Sunday as he enters the Lions Ring of Honor.  He'll visit the Ford Lions Report Live set to talk about his 21-year career and what this latest acknowledgement means to him.  Also, Billy Sims will join Rob Rubick in the Bud Light Pride Plaza on Brush Street with his thoughts on the season opener.

6. Fantasy Fix: In the final moments before you finalize your fantasy rosters, Brad Galli and David Solano tell you who's hot and who's not – who you should definitely play and who should hit the bench.

7. Free Tickets: Every week, Bud Light is awarding a pair of free tickets to Lions fans. You have to watch Ford Lions Report Live to find out how to win.

We're excited to bring you the excitement of Lions pregame every week throughout the year.  Matt Shepard, Charlie Sanders and Tim Twentyman join us from field level and you never really know what might happen any given week.  Join us this and every Sunday at 11am. 

If you like the show – tell your friends.  If you don't – tell me.

See ya Sunday.
