Calvin Johnson is transitioning from life as an NFL player to a life of wedded bliss this summer as he celebrates his retirement by getting married on June 4.

Those wishing to get the longtime Lions receiver and his bride a gift may find something pretty surprising on the registry in the form of a bunch of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle items.

Detroit’s WXYZ-7 News discovered the Macy’s registry online for the couple and found a bunch of items featuring the crime-fighting reptiles alongside the more traditional items like flatware, towels and bedding, possibly for Johnson’s young son.

That Michelangelo bath rug is pretty awesome, but I do not think it will match the neutral color palate that the couple seems to be going for.

The newest Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film hits theaters the weekend of Johnson’s wedding, so he already has a perfect post-wedding activity for himself and his wife.
