TMZ has an interesting one here. According to them, a former member of the Detroit Lions—they don’t know who—was hired as a hit man by a “celebrity skin specialist.” Yes, you read that correctly. Also, don’t worry. The murder never happened. Here are the details, via TMZ : A former Detroit Lions football player is suspected of the being [...]
And the chips continue to fall. According to Adam Schefter, the Lions have hired Jim Caldwell, currently of the Baltimore Ravens, to be their head coach.
