Detroit Lions welcome Jim Caldwell with photoshopped birthday card

The Detroit Lions certainly didn’t want to miss the birthday of newly hired head coach Jim Caldwell, so they did what any good employer would – send him a birthday card.

Well, kind of.

Employing their best graphics intern, the Lions decided to take a recent picture of Caldwell and fire up their favorite photo editing software. The end result? This beauty:


Seriously – how awesome is that? The balloons certainly add a nice touch, but the cake is so perfectly positioned in Jim Caldwell’s hands its not even funny. And the blue candles? Very smooth, Detroit Lions intern. Very smooth.

I’m just glad Jim looks so excited. I know when I have a big, chocolate cake just sitting in front of me, I can hardly smile too.

I should also note – I’m completely assuming this is a photoshopped creation. Maybe there’s a bakery in the Detroit area who is known for making cartoon cakes and balloons. And if so, I must see this sorcery.

For now, enjoy your digital cake Mr. Caldwell, who hit the big 59 on Thursday morning..
