The Carolina Panthers and the Leicester City Football Club are both at the top of their leagues this year, having their best seasons in years. That has prompted a bit of camaraderie between the two sides, including an exchange of jerseys, and a fascination with “The Dab.” I did a 5 1/2 minute interview on local station BBC Leicester just after midnight this morning (2/5/16), taped for airing on their Breakfast Show. The presenter is Jo Haywood.

Jo Haywood mentions a little dance that footballer Peter Crouch used to do after scoring a goal. They called it the Robot. Here’s what it looked like – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yzo_yi1_fws – Not quite the same flair as Cam’s Dab.
