MNF Open

Barry Sanders Intro to MNF

The Detroit Lions made a triumphant return to Monday Night Football last night after a 10-year absence, defeating the Bears 24-13 and improving their record to 5-0 for the first time since 1956.

The ESPN telecast kicked off with a powerful opening video voiced by Lions Hall of Famer Barry Sanders and featuring a local gospel choir, Selected of God. The video, voiced by Sanders, highlighted the resurgence of the Lions and the entire city of Detroit. Some fans asked if they could see the video again, so Front Row is happy to oblige here. We hope you like.

  1. Proud to be a native of Detroit. Our Lion cubs are finally maturing. Scaring bthe heck out of the rest of the league. Great Job Barry ! You still da man. Detroit Dave

  2. When I moved to Texas back in 1991, the one thing I promised I would never do is forsake my Detroit sports teams. But Barry’s video has me thinking about going back.

  3. I’ll be honest, I did not think I would see this time happening. I have been a season ticket holder since 96′, and have been supporting the Lions long before that. I am happy for the players and coaches, and for all of the die-hard Honalulu Blue and Silver fans that live and die with this team. Way to go Lions, and welcome back, Barry!

  4. I live in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan all my life, I have been a Lions fan all my life. unfortunately we are surrounded by Packer fans. It makes me ill actually to talk about it. im proud to live in Michigan and support all the teams here. But the Lions have my heart, Barry Sanders, my all time favorite player what heart, what class, there will never be another like him. God bless the Lions and thank you Barry Sanders for all you gave on the field and for being the class act that we can tell our children about.

  5. Barry,

    Everyone in Detroit would love to see you back on the field. That would be the icing on the cake. Loved watching you for those 10 years. The shortest 10 years of my life.


  6. Moved to Oregon in 1985, yet my heart is always, always with my Detroit teams. As native Detroiters’ it is who we are. We thank our parents and relatives for that. Imagine all the events in our lives since the Lions last made a run like this. Maintain the passion, Go Lions’ and Go Wings.
