The NFL and B.A.S.S. cross paths again.

In the photo at right, you'll see Mark Zona (left) and Kevin VanDam hanging out with NFL Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson recently after a Lions practice. Both Zona and KVD live in Michigan and are Lions fans (though it is important to point out Zona is a Chicago native and first and foremost a Bears fan). Johnson is a two-time All-Pro, and he's a big fan of fishing. This past March, he signed one of the largest sports contracts ever — an eight-year, $132 million contract extension. No wonder he's smiling!

By the way, Zona and KVD are both tall guys, and Johnson towers over them. The cleats help a little, but Johnson is 6 foot, 5 inches tall.
