Ezekiel “Ziggy” Ansah took the stage with a pair of eye-catching lensless 3D glasses when he was selected by the Detroit Lions in the first round (No. 5 overall) in the 2013 NFL Draft on Thursday, April 25. While it may have started out just as a dare from the folks at BYU, it has now turned into a pretty sweet perk for Ansah, who picked up the glasses when he went to see the 2011 film “Thor” in theatres. Photo Credit: DetroitLions.com   Brian Manzullo of the Detroit Free Press reports Ansah has been offered free admission to IMAX movies for a year. “We, at IMAX, couldn’t help but notice your keen sense of style at the NFL draft this year,” the company said in a letter. “You made quite a fashion statement with your pair of 3D glasses. As a member of the Detroit Lions, you share our love for the color blue and we would like to add an IMAX silver lining for you – we would love to celebrate your first year in the NFL with the opportunity to see all IMAX 3D movies on us for the next
PLAYERS: Ezekiel Ansah
