Every week, Free Press sports writer Carlos Monarrez asks one very special Lions player three questions that reveal everything about his hopes, his dreams and his character. Quarterback Matthew Stafford is on the hot seat this week, with guest questions provided by right tackle Jason Fox.
What was your favorite childhood boy band and why?
Stafford:“Hanson. Right? Isn’t that a boy band? I’m going with Hanson to spice things up. Why? Like, my aunt or uncle got me a Hanson CD when I was young. It was ‘MMMBop’ or something like that.”

Stafford: “$5 for lack of a favorite WNBA team.”
