Matthew Stafford surprises Lions fans from a fortress made of cans

Wednesday October 29th, 2014


Some Detroit-area shoppers got a very big surprise when they went to the grocery store recently, as they were greeted by Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford, who had set up residence in what he was calling his "can cave," a fortress made out of cases of Pepsi.

Stafford has a pretty strict door policy for his supermarket hot spot, only letting in Lions fans and cheerleaders to start, before eventually relenting and inviting everyone in to enjoy some pizza and dancing.

The quarterback even lets one fan run a route, which almost leads to disaster because he nearly takes out a neighboring case filled with sausages.
