Coming soon: It's the Colin and Cam show
By Bill Williamson
A couple weeks after mimicking Cam Newton’s “Superman” pose, Colin Kaepernick has agreed to team with the Carolina Panthers quarterback for some child’s play.
The Cartoon Network announced Wednesday that Kaepernick, the San Francisco 49ers quarterback, and Newton will host its fourth annual Hall of Game Awards. It premiers Monday, February 17 at 7 p.m. (ET/PT).
"I'm looking forward to sharing the stage with Cam as host this year," Kaepernick said in a press release. "We've both made appearances at past shows, but taking over as hosts? Let's just say we're going to take it to another level."
Added Newton in the press release: "While both of us are newcomers to hosting, we're both high-energy guys, ready to get down to business. We're going to be surrounded by so many sports, TV and movie icons that this show is guaranteed to be the best one yet!"
The last time the two quarterbacks were together was in the NFC divisional playoffs when Kaepernick led the 49ers to a 23-10 road win. He celebrated a touchdown run by doing Newton’s famed “Superman” pose.
After the game, Kaepernick said it was “just a little shout out.” When asked about Kaepernick’s actions, Newton said: "It’s not the first nor the last time somebody does that."
