No, you weren't seeing things. Jason Day was on the sideline in Detroit on Thursday night at the Lions took on the Green Bay Packers in an NFC North matchup.
The PGA champion may have looked out of place, however, as Day was wearing a red media vest reserved for camera crew members and photographers with field-level access for the games. We're still not sure if Day was actually doing some media work as part of a bit, but he did get an up-close view of Calvin Johnson's impressive first quarter touchdown grab.
Day, who has a home in Ohio, was supposed to be in the Bahamas for this week's Hero World Challenge. However, he pulled out of the event after his wife Ellie gave birth to the couple's second child, Lucy, in November.
