Oh That #9 Jersey Looks Good

11/23/2019 at 6:30pm EST

Carlos Monarrez of the Detroit Free Press,

Justin Coleman had no idea who Gordie Howe was.

But somehow, before the Detroit Lions cornerback had any idea he would end up playing in the same city as the late Red Wings legend and hockey icon known as Mr. Hockey, he was drawn to Howe’s jersey.

This happened in Seattle, where Coleman played for the Seahawks from 2017-18. Coleman grew up in Georgia and he isn’t a hockey fan. He’s never even been to a game....

The funny thing is Coleman never bothered to investigate whose jersey he was wearing before he arrived in Detroit. He freely admits he’s a neophyte and barely knows anything about hockey or its players. Just imagine how fraught with danger his uninformed purchase was.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
