You would think that a bunch of burly men would have no interest in Dragon Ball Z, let alone anime. But that's not the case! Take for example, Lions defensive tackle Mike Daniels, who had this badass mural of him painted as a Saiyan warrior.

Look, Daniels even does the Kamehameha in a 2017 game against the Seahawks!
Daniels isn't the only DBZ fan in the NFL. Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett is also a Dragon Ball Z fan, even naming his dog Gohan. Steelers wideout Juju Smith-Schuster is a fan as well as Falcons wideout Mohamed Sanu.

The fandom has even translated into some awesome touchdown celebrations in the NFL. Check them out!
As a fellow Dragon Ball Z fan, this warms my heart to see some of the biggest NFL stars share in the fandom. Like Goku, they push their bodies to the limit in hopes of becoming better and it pays off. It makes you want to go Super Saiyan!
My life! Food, sports, school. It's what it is!
