Fan Walks Across State To Support Lions
Some 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.
