Detroit Lions Golden Tate went into "hero mode" during a recent trip to a ski resort in Canada.

The wide receiver posted a video of himself — decked out in an American flag-themed snowsuit — catching a beer tossed from a fellow skiier over the heads of onlookers. Tate, who had 93 receptions for over 1,000 yards last season, then chugged the beer and tossed the can off into the crowd because that's what heroes do.
