Around these parts, when we think of Thanksgiving Day, we almost automatically think of the Detroit Lions. And when we think about the history of the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving Day, it does not take long to think about the GOAT, Barry Sanders.
If you were lucky enough to watch Barry run the football, consider yourself blessed because he is the best to ever play the game. Period.
Despite being retired for over 20 years, Sanders is still a fan-favorite and in honor of the Lions Thanksgiving Day tradition, Barry surprised a few fans the only way he can in 2020.
A Zoom meeting.

Can you imagine being on the other end of one of these Zoom calls?
Even though I am well past my ‘idolizing athletes' days, I have to admit that it would be pretty cool.
