Lions’ Ugly Christmas Sweater Revealed

By Christy Strawser

DETROIT (CBS Detroit) Ugly Christmas sweater parties are all the rage at the holidays.

Usually these knit beauties feature reindeer, grimacing Santas, tiny ribbons, glitter snowflakes, and 15 different garish colors spread across a disproportionately small space.

And now there’s something else: The Lions.

That’s right, an ugly Christmas sweater featuring the Detroit Lions logo and team colors has been unleashed on the world. Thankfully you have time to buy one before the holiday rush.

Will someone get me this Detroit Lions ugly Christmas sweater?

Judging from the comments on this Instagram post, there are at least a few Lions fans who can’t wait to slip one on. We think they go best with pleated khakis.

You can buy one at the NFL Shop for the low, low price of $64.95. As one would expect, it’s 100 percent genuine acrylic.

The description says buyers can “show off your Detroit Lions spirit with a little zany style in this Wordmark ugly sweater.”

Does this say “Lions spirit” to you? Let us know in comments below.
