Yesterday, in the NFL thread on Reddit, a user uploaded an image with the headline, “My reddit secret santa amazed me [sic] this last year, however no one seemed to care.”
After seeing the Cam Newtown-autographed mini helmet, another redditor somewhat sarcastically responded: “Nobody ever sends me signed Carolina Panthers helmets.” And because the internet is (occasionally) awesome, the Panthers’ verified account swooped in a couple hours later, like some sort of summer Santa Claus, asking “how about a signed football? PM us your info.” And they actually sent one!
According to the verified account, it’s “a vintage ball signed by what looks like members of the 2007 squad.”
Hey, Carolina Panthers…
