Hey Lions fans. Did you know that the #85 is a retired number on that team? Retired 40 years ago for player Chcuk Hughes - who died on the field of a heart attack back in 1971. Strange enough - I notice that a guy named Scheffler is wearing #85. Anyone know the story - or is it just another case of showing everyone that the Detroit Lions Footbal Company has little class???
Died running back to the huddle during the final 2 minute warning against the Bears. But to answer your question... he asked permission from Hughes family.
Please tell me this is not from direct experience?Wish I could say that. Noone was hurt, and damage is left to only a broken axle. I was literally 2 blocks from home and thought it'd be fun. Boy was I wrong. I managed to drive it home and avoid any legal issues. Crazy thing is there are 2 cops on my street and this happened between both of their homes. Glad I didn't hit one of their cars.
Just got out of Silver Linings Playbook thought I'd stop by The Den on my way home.....
