Lions' Ndamukong Suh Tours The ESPN Campus

Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh went through the ESPN car wash in Bristol on Tuesday, talking to virtually every platform the network offers. ESPN.com's NFC North blogger, Kevin Seifert, ran through Suh's day in Bristol.

Of course, a primary topic of conversation was Suh's hit on Jay Cutler last Sunday that drew a personal foul penalty. Here is some of what he said on The Scott Van Pelt Show:

"As far as I know, the explanation that came from Mr. Hochuli was that I gave him a blow in the back of the head. We looked back at film, and I hit him on top of the numbers on his back. We can't really get too nitty-gritty into it, but it's what he saw, and his interpretation, which I totally understand. And it may have looked at first glimpse, when he has an opportunity to throw a flag, it looked like I hit him in the back of the head." 

Suh also did an interview with Page 2, discussing his involvement with a charity campaign correlating with the release of the "Michael Jackson The Experience" video game for Wii. Suh wore a single, sequined glove on his right hand, a la Jackson, during his TV appearances. 

"Pretty much any time we were stuck in the house, we put the video on, dance to him, watch him. 'Thriller,' 'Beat It,' 'Bad,' just being able to go back and reminisce to those things. … Definitely a huge Michael Jackson fan. Now to be older, to still be a fan of him, being able to work with that estate, not that many people can say that they've had an opportunity to have some connection to Michael Jackson."

The glove will be signed and auctioned off for charity. Proceeds from Suh's auction will benefit the Detroit Medical Center. 

Suh also participated in a SportsNation chat, which you can read here.

UPDATE: Here is video from Suh's appearance on ESPN's First Take:
