Matthew Stafford Attends Pistons Game, Throws Some Passes

With the Miami Heat in town on Wednesday night, quite a few big names were at the Palace to watch them take on the Detroit Pistons. In addition to Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson, who grew up less than an hour from Miami, Lions center Dominic Raiola and quarterback Matthew Stafford attended the game. Actually, Stafford didn't just attend the game. He got involved with the festivities during a timeout, as did Robinson.

I think catching passes from Stafford would have been much more fun than watching the Pistons. Then again, Detroit actually did put up a fight for a change and nearly pulled off the upset against the Heat. In the end, Miami won 101-98, but it was a pretty entertaining game.

It also would have been entertaining to see in person just how differently Stafford and Robinson throw the ball. While Stafford is known for his powerful, highly accurate arm, Robinson's known more for his legs than anything else.

In any case, it sounds like it was a pretty cool experience at the Palace with two of the state's quarterbacks getting involved during a break in the game.
