Sports For Chicks: Moms should consider Lions Kids Clubs
Okay, so this might be a reach for Sports For Chicks, but since a lot of our Chick Readers are moms, I thought it would fit.
There is SO much excitement taking place in the NFL with the Draft this week/weekend. For those of you who read me, you know I am a die-hard Detroit Lions fan...no pausing for any negative commentary here, not on my blog...Anyway, the Lions first four round picks have been substantial. Ndamukong Suh is the number one pick for Defensive Tackle, and we got him! Jahvid Best from California, is yet another dynamic Running Back. Building up the depth of the team Jason Fox of Miami and Amari Spievey from Iowa. And there are still three rounds to go. I am so excited for the new season!! Woo hoo!
While spending time on the Lions website, keeping track of all this excitement, I came across the info on the Detroit Lions Kid's Club. I'm not sure why I've never checked it out before, after all, we've been taking our kids to games for years. It's so cool I wish I could join it...ummm, but I'm a little over the age limit. (Shhh!)
For $20 bucks, your kid gets quite a bit if they are a Lions fan. It's even more beneficial to the ones who often go to games, or if you're on a budget like us and try and catch a pre-season game. Don't forget, Ford Field has a family section now too without cigarettes, alcohol or that colorful crazed-fan language.
Here's some of what you get: A welcome letter from Roary, a Free 2010 pre-season ticket, video birthday greeting from a Lions player, tee shirt, membership card, Lions pencils and other goodies, a Lions Yearbook or Program, automatic entry into the Educational School Assembly Contest (a visit at school from Roary and the "Lions Leaders for Life" assembly), quarterly newsletters, an opportunity to watch a 20 minute warm-up from the sideline, a chance to form the Lions tunnel on the field and a pre-game Tailgate Party just for kids club members. That's a LOT for $20 if your kid is into Lions Football.
Anyway, just wanted to share the Lions love with all the mom Chicks out there. Go Lions!
