Coach treats Lions to “field trip”

The Detroit Lions were bussing to Cleveland yesterday in preparation for tonight's preseason game against the Browns. Unknown to most of the players on the busses was the fact that they were taking a detour to Canton, located just one hour south of Cleveland.

Lions head coach Jim Schwartz had secretly arranged for the team to have dinner at the Hall of Fame and then tour the museum. The visit was a hit for the players, coaches, and team personnel as the departure time for the trip to their Cleveland hotel was extended twice.
