Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.
1930-33 Portsmouth Spartans, 1934-present Detroit Lions
After three seasons in a small river town in Ohio, the Portsmouth Spartans relocated to Detroit in 1934 and became the Lions. Beginning that first season in the "Motor City" the team hosted a game on Thanksgiving, a tradition that has become synonymous with Detroit. The Lions' long history has been filled with dynamic personalities including 14 members of the franchise who were elected to the Hall of Fame.
