An Open Letter to Angry Carolina Panthers Fans

Dear Carolina Panthers fans, Surely you’ve seen the 1996 smash hit Happy Gilmore. You know, before Adam Sandler turned complacent and started playing that same lethargic, wiseass dad role he’s written into every one of his movies.

Can WE just ban Adam Sandler and Kevin James

from ever saying the most famous words in motorsports again.  Although they were better then the 2010 edition it was still; horrible,  I really do think some NASCAR legends have been turning in their graves after hearing them say those words.
