On Friday, CBS Mornings aired a segment on Team Agar, a father-son team that takes on incredible races with 400 pounds of equipment to get it done. The reason: son Johnny has cerebral palsy, so the team has gear to complete the challenges connected to each other.
The Agar family, from West Michigan, runs a handicap accessibility ratings website called JohnnysPass, and recently they published their story in a book called The Impossible Mile.
Former Lions wide receiver Nate Burleson, who is now a co-host of CBS Mornings, found out that Johnny Agar also happens to be a Detroit Lions fan:
When he learned @agar_john is a huge @Lions fan, @nateburleson recorded a special message for the inspiring triathlete — and his reaction is priceless: “He was always somebody that I strive to be like.” pic.twitter.com/PLut17bRxd— CBS Mornings (@CBSMornings) November 18, 2022
CBS’ David Begnaud is right, that’s just the type of dude Nate Burleson is. What a great guy. Now, on to the rest of your weekend Notes:
- ESPN’s Eric Woodyard wrote about the lessons that Lions head coach Dan Campbell learned during his time with the New York Giants franchise.
- Former Lions offensive lineman TJ Lang visited Two James Spirits for a Lions Radio Network feature:

- Kyle Meinke from MLive has a story up with reactions from Lions players to the emerging issue of the safety of the artificial turf at Ford Field (spoiler: they are not pleased).
- Meinke also has an article detailing how rookie Aidan Hutchinson is outproducing other rookie pass rushers taken in the most recent draft. This is kind of interesting, given the low grade from Chris Trapasso we pointed out in Friday’s Notes.
- Rookie Kerby Joseph at the end is the best:
