That fact, apparently, isn’t universally known.
As featured in the latest Monday Morning Quarterback article, Lions rookie cornerback Darius Slay confused the Packers’ longtime home with a luxury automobile.
“Lambo? Like the car?” he asked during a defensive backs meeting this summer.
Slay’s veteran teammates were said to be “flabbergasted” that the first thing to come to his mind was a Lamborghini.
“I knew what a Lambo was, but I didn’t know it was Green Bay’s stadium. They said, ‘Man, that’s the stadium!’ I said, ‘Oh man . . .’ ” Slay recalled.
Fortunately for Slay, who’s in line for significant playing time, his football acumen is much sharper.
“This kid knew the game coming in. I kept quizzing him. He knew things that a lot of coaches don’t know,” Lions defensive coordinator Gunther Cunningham said.
Cunningham continued: “He is one of the most gifted guys I’ve seen in a while. I don’t want to put too much on him at this stage, but he’s got the raw skills you need at that position.”
Slay seems like someone you wouldn’t want to go against on the football field. But in Trivial Pursuit? Game on.
