Panthers extensive receiver Robby Anderson is at the moment in his first 12 months with the workforce, and though he appears to have already familiarized himself with Carolina’s offense, there are some team-related issues he is not so accustomed to simply but. For example, plainly Anderson had no concept that the Carolina Panthers mascot is a panther, and we all know that as a result of the workforce launched a hilarious video this week. Sooner or later in the course of the workforce’s 34-30 loss to the Raiders on Sunday, Anderson noticed Sir Purr — the Panthers mascot — on the massive display screen at Bank of America Stadium, and for some cause, Anderson thought he was taking a look at a bear, which led to a really attention-grabbing dialog with fellow receiver D.J. Moore. Robby Anderson: “What’s that bear doing?”DJ Moore: “Bear?!”Anderson: “Panther.”Moore: “That is Sir Purr, Bro.”The way in which Moore responds is ideal. He says the mascot’s identify as if everybody who has ever lived within the state of North Carolina ought to understand it. Anyway, let’s get again to the dialog, which can now additionally contain Panthers receiver Curtis Samuel.
Anderson: “Who?”Moore: “Sir Purr.”Anderson: “The way you say that?”Curtis Samuel: “Sir Purr.”Anderson: “Sir Purr. Oh, Sir Purr. Wow. You name him that?”Moore: “Yeah, that is his identify.”Anderson: “So that you be like, ‘What’s up, Sir Purr?'” The one factor extra hilarious than studying the dialog is watching all of it go down on video. Though most mascots would in all probability be offended in the event that they discovered somebody on their workforce mistook them for one more species, that wasn’t the case with Sir Purr.
The Panthers mascot truly appears to be embracing Anderson’s mistake. After the video above went viral this week, Sir Purr determined to alter his Twitter identify to “I am That Bear.”Sir Purr is embracing his new standing as a bear
One factor that will probably be attention-grabbing to observe is how Staley Da Bear handles this. As the one precise bear mascot within the NFL, he may need some phrases for each Anderson and Sir Purr when the Panthers host Chicago in Week 6. Realizing Staley, it might get ugly. Simply kidding, I do not know Staley in any respect and I do not know if it should truly get ugly, however let’s hope it does, as a result of everybody loves mascot battle. As for Anderson, the Panthers will in all probability be prepared to miss the truth that he does not know the distinction between a panther and a bear so long as he continues to play like he did in Week 1. In Carolina’s loss to the Raiders, Anderson was one of many few shiny spots, catching six passes for 115 yards, together with a 75-yard landing. The sport was Anderson’s first one with the Panthers since signing a two-year, $20 million deal in the course of the offseason.
