Panthers Kicker Shoves Marching Band Member Who Got in His Way During Halftime Warmups (Video)
Marching bands gonna march. Kickers gonna kick.
Yesterday in Tampa, Carolina Panthers kicker Graham Gano came out to take some practice kicks during halftime. This is not an uncommon among NFL kickers, who want to warm up and get a feel for the wind conditions.
Unfortunately, it’s also not uncommon for NFL teams to have halftime entertainment down on the field. And it just so happened that yesterday’s halftime entertainment—the Bethune-Cookman University marching band—was not finished with their performance when Gano took the field for his warmups.
So what happened? Gano took his warmups anyway. Right in the middle of the marching band. And he even gave one kid what he later described as a “playful shove.”
Take a look:
Unfortunately, Gano’s practice did not pay off, as he missed his next kick.
Come to think of it, maybe it was karma.
