Lions Hall of Fame running back Barry Sanders was a guest on “Moving the Chains” with Tim Ryan and Pat Kirwan on Sirius NFL Radio to talk about the Lions’ success, going to a fan’s house for charity and plenty more.
Said Sanders on the Lions, “We’re excited. We’ve come a long ways, obviously, and had some real difficult times with so many things going wrong. Now, getting back on track, seeing the team pull out some victories (is great). Of course this is football country out here. They love the football, love the Lions and we’ve been waiting for this for a while. It’s nice to see.”
As far as what Sanders is doing for charity, he will participate in a “homegate”. Fans can bid through ebay to benefit the Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund (GGAF), a non-profit organization providing financial grants and medical assistance to retired football players in dire need.
“I’ll come to your home, I’ll bring all the food and drinks (for) the game coming up this week against the Raiders for a great cause, of course, the Gridiron Greats Fund,” said Sanders. “You can find out more about it at ebay.com/millerlite. It should be a lot of fun.”
