Lions notes: Ziggy Ansah makes most of trip to London

Lions notes looks at Ziggy Ansah, where the team practiced this week and much more.

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports
  • Ziggy Ansah has certainly made the most of the Detroit Lions' trip to England.
  • The Lions practiced at Pennyhill Park Hotel & Spa this week. It's located in Bagshot, England, and it's the home of England Rugby. More than anything, though, it looks like a pretty nice place to spend a few days.
  • Jim Caldwell had a pretty great line about the hotel:
  • The Lions really put a lot of thought and extra preparation into their trip to London.
  • With the Lions in London, Jim Brandstatter won't be able to do color commentary on the Lions' radio broadcast on Sunday. He'll be in East Lansing on Saturday to call Michigan/Michigan State, and he will be replaced in the Lions' radio booth by Rob Rubick on Sunday. Brandstatter will at least contribute to the Lions' radio coverage, though.
