Lions, Millen call upon ‘media darling’ Iron Sheik


With season ticket sales sagging, the Detroit Lions have brought in wrestling great the Iron Sheik to take over the teams strength and conditioning program.

The Iron Sheik, who takes pride in being the biggest draw in the history of the Pontiac Silverdome, was introduced to the media by the always competent Matt Millen at a strange press conference held in the team’s weight room.

In a bizarre twist, the press conference ended abruptly after the Iron Sheik began ranting about the division rival Chicago Bears, "Fugh da Lovie Smith, he eaze fayg. Rex Grossman iz agh peez of sheet,  no good modder fahker."

Millen said the team’s immediate plans did not concern signing lone hold-out Calvin Johnson, but finding proper office space for the wrestling legend.
