An(other) open letter to Cam Newton…

Posted: November 19, 2015 in Uncategorized

Dear Cam,
There has been a lot of silly, distracting talk about your touchdown dance this week. I wanted to step on the dance floor and share my own silly steps…
I love to watch you play, you play with passion and joy!
Don’t let the critics and cynics steal your joy!
Haters will always try to silence celebrators.
Don’t let those who have forgotten the dance steps keep you from dancing.
People who can’t hear the music always try to shut down the song.
Don’t listen to them.
You play with the enthusiasm of a kid…a 6’5″ kid!
That is beautiful and refreshing and contagious.
But it’s unacceptable to a lot of people who take themselves too seriously.
It makes them nervous because they can’t control it.
They would much rather you play like a businessman or a thug.
Don’t listen to them.
The best role models are those who can be themselves, make the world a better place and inspire others to do the same, you are doing that!
Keep pounding,
Keep dancing and…
Dab on them folks.
