That’s because Dave Stephens, the frontman for We Came as Romans, was five years old when he first flirted with a Detroit Lions cheerleader. Sadly, the romance died there.

In this interview with Paul Brothers, the Detroit native and Lions fan also talked about his frustration with Ndamukong Suh’s continued idiocy. But Stephens has a different theory for what sparked the defensive end’s latest act of unchecked rage, saying he was just mad that Nickelback played the Thanksgiving halftime show in Detroit.

Makes sense.
