Barry Sanders, a legendary Detroit Lions player, feels emotional about having such a fan as Eminem.
Marshall has given personal commentary on a recent documentary about this outstanding running back, where he talked about the impact Barry’s majestic style and mysterious retirement had on the Lions following and Em personally. Eminem expressed pure adoration for the football player and subsequently surprised Barry Sanders.
The NFL legend posted on his socials:
There is really no way to describe hearing @Eminem say he was fan. Scoring major points with the kids on this one.
Marshall reposted this response without as much of a comment but an eyes emoji. It looks like he just had his own fan moment, learning that his opinion might have weight in the household of a man he respects so much.
