It’s been a whirlwind past year for Matthew Stafford. The former Lions quarterback took the L.A. Rams all the way to the Super Bowl- and won.

Even though Stafford is in L.A. now, he was back in Detroit with his wife, Kelly, in honor of their expansion of SAY Detroit’s SAY Play Center, called the “Kelly and Matthew Stafford & Friends Education Center.”

At the ceremony, Kelly told Matthew – in front of all to see – that when his contract is finished with the Los Angeles Rams, he’s coming back to Detroit to play for the Lions. Second time is a charm, right? Check out a tweet about the exchange from Jeanna Trotman here. After Kelly made her comment, everyone laughed, so it was obviously a joke. But, hey, you never know, right? Either way, it’s nice to see the Staffords still so involved with SAY Detroit.
