One thing that can always be said about Detroiters is that they will ride and support anything Detroit until they can't anymore.

Detroiters are a very loyal and dedicated people as made evident by all the Detroit Lions fans who have simply decided that the Los Angeles Rams Super Bowl appearance is really a Detroit Super Bowl appearance.

Former Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford will make his first Super Bowl appearance during his first season playing for a team that's not the Lions. To make things even more Detroit, 8 Mile's own Eminem will be performing during the Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show.

While some of us feel Stafford's success is like watching our ex get married after a bad breakup, others are celebrating this as a moment for Detroit.

The D Line, a lifestyle brand that makes witty Detroit-inspired merchandise, dropped a line of merch that says Detroit Rams and features a modified Lions and Rams logo.
Even the Detroit Cookie Company got in on the action. The bakery took to social media to show its support for Stafford by giving way 900 of its PB Volcano cookies, apparently they're Stafford's favorite from the cookie company, if the Rams secure the Super Bowl win.

If the phrase "take what they can get" were a city, it would be Detroit.
