Not for nothing, but the fact that a random wasted dude can just run up and start giving Colin Kaepernick backhanded compliments for the better part of two minutes might actually be the surest sign that he is - indeed - NOT Cam Newton. I'm not exactly sure where this interaction takes place, but kind of feels like there should be a security guard or an entourage present anywhere that Colin Kaepernick can potentially get backed into a corner and berated by a guy in a short sleeve button-down and a bow-tie. I know he sucks at quarterback now, but I still think he's earned that most negligible level of celebrity.
More importantly, I think we can all relate to how Colin Kaepernick felt in this moment. You don't have to like him as a player or as a person to understand just badly he wanted to scream in frustration as a drunk dude kept forcefully repeating the same idiotic opinion over and over and over again. You don't have to think he's ripe for a comeback season to feel his pain as he actively restrained himself from punching the guy that kept touching his shoulder for no reason directly in the face. You don't have to believe that he has a skill set that remotely resembles Cam Newton's to pity him as he had to pose for a picture - he wanted no part of being in - for upwards of 45 seconds. You don't have to think he's anything more than an egotistical douchebag to think that he deserves better than getting caught up in drunken debate - with no real direction - whose winner is decided by volume. I personally believe that Colin Kaepernick is a flash in the pan that thinks wayyyyyy too highly of himself, but I'll sympathize with ANYONE that's ever been the sober person stuck amongst a group of drunks because we've all been here before...
