This Compilation Of Cam Newton Schmoozing With Kids Before His Games Is Goddamn Adorable


Cam Newton is so bro. Not only is his team one of the only two teams left in the league that remains unbeaten, the way he has carried himself on and off the field this year has been nothing short of exemplary. Everything from scoring five touchdowns against the Redskins to giving away each of the balls to little kids in the stands to providing 900 Charlotte-area kids a hot meal this Thanksgiving, the guy looks like he genuinely gives a shit–a rarity, it seems, in the NFL. Every penny of that 5-year, $100+ million contract is well deserved.

Let this video compilation of Cam giving his young fans a lifelong memory take you into the holiday weekend.

Happy Thanksgiving, bros.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
