The "Spirit of Detroit" has donned many a jersey to support it's Michigan sports teams during the playoffs... Red Wings, Tigers, Pistons. Heck, he even wore a tuxedo when the Three Tenors came to town.

But today marks a first for the big guy... Michigan State Athletics says the "Spirit of Detroit" will wear, for the first time evera Spartan Football jersey. He's reppin' green and white in honor of the Big Ten Champion Michigan State's first appearance in the College Football Playoffs.

I'm so excited, I can't wait to head to Detroit this week and take a picture with the "Spirit of Detroit" rocking green and white. And I'm not the only one who's excited... check out what Director of MSU Athletics, Mark Hollis had to say HERE.
