CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Cam Newton is going with zebra stripes instead of a Panther theme on his trip to the Super Bowl.
Carolina's star quarterback likes to do his own thing. Newton not only leads his team in dabs, sideline cheers and photo shoots, he apparently likes to dress for an occasion — or create one.
The Panthers are winging their way to the West Coast on Sunday, but Newton has already created a stir by showing up to board the team bus in Charlotte, North Carolina, wearing zebra-print jeans.
The black and white striped pants, overlaid with an intricate gold pattern from hip to ankle, had Twitter abuzz in the hours leading up to the Panthers' arrival in San Francisco for next Sunday's Super Bowl against the Denver Broncos.
California, here he comes.
