Barry Sanders Gets Involved In Garth Brooks Jersey Confusion
In what is now being called the "jersey scandal of 2020", country star Garth Brooks has gotten the attention of the former Detroit Lions running back Barry Sanders. Confused outrage was the reaction as Brooks showed up wearing a Sanders jersey on his recent stadium tour stop at Detroit's Ford Field, making some people believe that it was for the presidential candidate and not for the Hall of Fame running back.
An angry fan even took to social media to write, "Good grief. Can't you just do what you get paid to do???? Why why why does it have to involve politics!!! So sad. We don't pay good money for anything other than to watch you perform. Thought you were different."
Of course, the hilarious part is that politics was never intended to make its way into the performance in the first place! Plenty more angry and confused voters also took to social media to express their opinions.
The story only became funnier when Barry Sanders got involved in the hilarium, tweeting, "Hey @garthbrooks, want to be my VP?" with a hashtag, "#Number20for2020". Even the Detroit Lions football team got involved, creating a mock election poster wth a picture of Sanders and everything.
