Former Detroit Lions running back Barry Sanders is having a little fun with the craziness over fans who mistakenly thought country music star Garth Brooks was supporting Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders when he wore a Sanders football jersey at a Ford Field concert. It was really a Barry Sanders tribute.
On Friday, Sanders tweets:
Earlier, one Brooks fan wrote on social media: "If this is truly Garth, very sad. You just lost a fan. Trump 2020."
Also on Friday, the Detroit Lions tweet of Barry Sanders: "He's got our vote."
