CHARLOTTE, NC (Mark Price/The Charlotte Observer) - Carolina Panther Graham Gano is known as one of the best kickers in the NFL, but he's also apparently one heck of a dad.
When most of us were staring in anguish at the snow and ice Wednesday, he was building a giant snowman to entertain his oldest son.
If Gano is 6-foot-2, as his stats say, then the snowman has to be close to 9 feet...maybe 10. And it's wearing a Panthers ski cap, no less.
Gano explained the project in a tweet that quoting his son: "Can we build a snow man, he said."
His tweet of the snow giant has gotten 1,900 likes since being posted at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, and plenty of comments. Some swore it had to be fake or an optical illusion, while others tried to name it.
"Try kicking a field goal over that," tweeted Grant Dunwoody.
"You built a Julius Peppers," tweeted one fan.
"That's not a snowman. That's a Transformer," tweeted James Barrier.
