During its annual Rookie Training Week, Detroit Lions newbies gathered to learn how to tie a tie. While most of these men are over 250 pounds and can send a round object millions upon millions of yards through the air, very few can actually properly tie a necktie. Who is your favorite*?
The one looking around to see if he's doing it right?
