Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford and wide receiver Calvin Johnson picked up another award this weekend. Out at the Hall of Game Awards, which is an awards show put on by Cartoon Network, Stafford and Johnson earned the nod for the category of best "Dynamic Duo."

Kelly Hall, Stafford's girlfriend, tweeted a picture of the award winners after the show.
The Dynamic Duo! Megatron and...? (needs a name). Congrats boys! :) twitter.com/kellybhall/sta…— Kelly Hall (@kellybhall) February 19, 2012
According to Wikipedia, the other nominees for the Dynamic Duo award were the Los Angeles Clippers' Blake Griffin and Chris Paul, the Miami Heat's LeBron James and Dwyane Wade and the Los Angeles Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw and Matt Kemp. Interestingly enough, Stafford went to high school with Kershaw and played football and baseball with him. I'm sure Stafford will have some fun with him over winning the award.
