12-year old writes letter to all 32 NFL teams, only Panthers respond
The fan was trying to decide which NFL team he should become a fan of, and he got only one response.
The Carolina Panthers may have lost in the NFC divisional playoffs to the defending champion Seattle Seahawks, but they may have secured themselves a new fan along the way.
Cade Pope, a 12-year old NFL fan, sent a letter to the owner of each of the NFL's 32 teams about two weeks ago, asking for help deciding which team he should become a fan of. He has received only one response to date.
Panthers owner Jerry Richardson sent Cade a handwritten letter in response, according to KSLA12 in Shreveport. "Cade, we would be honored if our Carolina Panthers became your team," the letter stated. "We would make you proud by the classy way we represent you."
The letter also came with a package containing a replica Panthers helmet signed by star linebacker Luke Kuechly. For what it's worth, Pope said, "If this is the only team that responds to me, I'm a Carolina Panthers fan."
