Better check that mileage

Detroit cornerback Travis Fisher suffered a concussion last Sunday against New Orleans, but he was apparently clear-minded Friday when he offered this guarantee: If the Lions win Sunday at Green Bay, Fisher said he will walk back to Detroit.

Here's a link to Nicholas J. Cotsonika's blog in the Detroit Free Press, where Fisher said:

"If we win, man, I ain't catching the plane back home. I might walk. I'll walk back. I'll walk back to Detroit."

According to Mapquest, there are 490 miles between Green Bay and Detroit. Of course, Google Maps notes you can carve about 140 miles from the trip by taking the ferry in Manitowoc. But I'm not sure that would be in the spirit of Fisher's guarantee.
