Today I went to a mall in Sterling Heights to get my helmet signed by Denard. The special thing about this helmet is that Mike Hart signed it back in 2008. The place was packed. Not only because Denard was signing but Barry Sanders made an appearance before him. The line stretched all the way around the mall for Barry.
Denard was scheduled to arrive at 5:30pm. To be safe and avoid being cut off in the line like fan day 2011, I came to the mall the signing was at at 2:30pm.
Denard is such a nice guy had the huge Denard smile as soon as he walked into the store. The thing about this helmet is that is signed by the All-Time Leading Rusher, Mike Hart. And the All-Time Leading QB Rusher, Denard Robinson. Whoever breaks those records in the future, I will have them sign the helmet. I highly doubt Denard's will ever even be in danger of being broken given the offense going back to the pro style.
Anyways, in the back room of the store where both Barry and Denard exited through, they were hanging out for awhile in between the layoff from Barry's signing to Denard's. The store, Detroit City Sports, tweeted the picture of Denard and Barry. Just thought I'd post this pic if anyone is a big Lions fan as well as a Wolverine fan. Pretty cool pic, of some pretty amazing stars IMO.
