Tatum Bell, Still Remembered In Detroit (And Dallas)

Posted in Gridiron at 3:46 pm by

Not to be outdone by John Kitna’s mockery of pantsless Detroit assistant John Cullen, newly acquired Cowboys WR Roy Williams made a cameo appearance at the Lions’ annual Halloween bash Monday night, done up as accused klepto / former teammate Tatum Bell.  From the Detroit Free Press :

The prominent underwear in Williams’ costume is a reference to the fact that Johnson’s underwear was among the items missing from the bag when it was returned to Lions headquarters. The rest of the ensemble is a bellhop’s get-up with a name tag that says his name is “T. Bell.”

Williams told the crowd at Plaza Lanes in Plymouth that he got permission from Bell to wear the costume.

Costume creativity aside, what’s up with the Lions allowing recently traded players to attend team functions?  Does anyone know what Brett Favre is wearing to the Packers’ Halloween festivities?
