Panther Love

The rumor is that the Carolina Panthers are going to sign Colin Kaepernick. At this point, it’s no more than that, I couldn’t find any official confirmation so it might not happen.
But, if it does, I will instantly become a Carolina Panthers fan. I’m generally not that interested in American football. I live in Europe, so I’ve seen Romelo Lukaku play more than Colin Kaepernick, and that’s a whole different sport. Even back when I still lived in the U.S., I didn’t have a favorite team. People from Iowa go in different directions. Some Vikings fans, some Bears fans, some people root for St. Louis or Kansas City teams. It’s a pro sports wasteland.
I lived in L.A. for a long time, a city where the most important sport is movies, and never developed a love for any of the sports teams there. Oh, I would watch the Super Bowl, or a playoff game, or a college game if friends were watching it. It’s easy, then. You just cheer for whoever everybody else is cheering for, and everybody’s happy. Unfortunately, that’s how many people form their political opinions.
I am sure there are people from the other side, who will be furious, but screw them. They will have a whole league full of teams to root for, who didn’t sign Kaepernick.
I’ll be cheering for them every game and hope they make it all the way to the Super Bowl and win. Yeah, just to watch the right wingers heads explode.
But, it’s still just a rumor.
