Fan Walks Across State To Support Lions

lions new logo Fan Walks Across State To Support LionsSome Detroit Lions fans have marched wearing the colors of opposing teams. Others have attended games with bags on their heads.

Two wins in two seasons make some mad, but it’s motivating one fan from Michigan’s Upper Peninsula to walk more than 400 miles to support his downtrodden team.

Joseph Paquette left his Munising home Sunday and is trekking a little east and good deal south to the Lions’ practice facility in Allen Park. The 63-year-old tells The Mining Journal of Marquette he aims to walk between 25 and 50 miles daily and arrive in late August at the team’s training camp.

Paquette says he’s walking to show dedication, not gain fame. But he wouldn’t mind a few fans joining him for a stretch.

    Does WWJ have any video they can post of the pre-game show with Joe “Sisu” Pacquette? Would love to see it and I hear none of it got on the NFL Network presentation of the game. Oh and Charlie Sanders drop me a line I haven’t seen you since training camp 1968 at Cranbrook (I was a a wide-eyed 8 year old camper). You rock! Darrel Doehr
