But if you weren't paying attention to the player introductions during the Dec. 8 game between the Carolina Panthers and the New Orleans Saints, you missed something wonderful.
The Panthers' #76 defensive end, Greg Hardy, popped up onscreen to introduce himself in the established "Name, college attended" format. Hardy was, for some reason, wearing sunglasses. Then he spoke.
It slipped by in an instant, but we'll never forget it. Thanks, Greg.
