Panthers Graham Gano reacts after kicking 63-yard field goal to beat Giants
If you think you’ve heard everything already about Carolina Panthers Graham Gano’s game-winning kick, try hearing the play called in Spanish... or set to the theme from “Titanic.”
That’s just a sampling of the reaction that spread across social media after the surprising last-second 33-31 win Sunday against the New York Giants at Bank of America Stadium.
Some fans took to calling him “Golden Toe” and “Lord of the Leg” not long after, while Travis Hancock bragged that Gano nailed the field goal from the neighboring town of Huntersville -- about 15 miles from the stadium.
“It’s like I lost my baseball, but Gano returned it...and it actually was a bag of cash. And a puppy. And world peace,” tweeted Jeremy Igo of CarolinaHuddle.com.
