Jimmy loves his Lions

Jimmy Fallon virtually commits to Detroit Lions

If Matthew Stafford and Ndamukong Suh make it big with the Detroit Lions, general manager Martin Mayhew might want to consider bringing in Jimmy Fallon as a talent scout.

Fallon, the veteran star of such comedic smash hits as The Entrepreneurs,Taxi and The Grungy Clementine – OK, that last one was completely made up, but really, would you have known had I not told you? – has had a knack for hosting future Lions draft picks on his late-night show … before they even become Lions draft picks!

Happy to be the beneficiary of Stafford last year and Suh this year, Detroit head coach Jim Schwartz sent a Lions jersey to Fallon with his name embroidered across the back.

Fallon was thankful, but quick to point out, “Maybe this is an invitation to play for the Lions. I don’t know what this is, but I’m not that good at football. I’m pretty awful. I’m good at Madden football. So if they need a virtual video game guy who plays football, I can do that. And I can tell you right now, because I do love Detroit, my team on Madden ’11 will be the Detroit Lions.”
