Who is "butterball?" - | WBTV Charlotte

Who is "butterball?"

Hi everyone, this is Paul Cameron at my desk in the WBTV Newsroom.

Hope you’re not planning on going anywhere tomorrow.  If we get the half-inch of ice as predicted, Charlotte will be locked down tight.  Mountain counties are also looking at more than a foot of snow, but something tells me they know how to deal with it. 

Interesting note about the NFC Championship Sunday—the Panthers field crew laid a tarp over the turf to protect it from the winter storm.  Arizona has elected to fly in to Charlotte Saturday.  The Cardinals won’t get much, if any, practice time on the field until warm-ups before the game.

There is a member of the Carolina Panthers who team owner Jerry Richardson calls, “Butterball.”  Who is it?  This player has several nicknames, but you may know him as the “Dancing Bear.”   Join Molly Grantham when she interviews the man who makes sure Cam Newton doesn’t get hurt.

Tip to the wise—if you have to venture out tomorrow, make sure to take your time, increase your distance and never jam on the brakes.  Please drive safely.

Please join Eric, Molly Grantham, Delano Little and me for WBTV News at 11:00!
