Cam Newton Speech

In his Heisman acceptance speech earlier this evening, Cam Newton delivered what will go down as one of the most unintentionally ironic lines ever uttered: “My parents do a lot of things behind the scenes that go unnoticed.”

Note to Auburn fans: I’m not presuming that Cam Newton is guilty of anything. The NCAA investigation is ongoing, and I think everyone should allow the guy the presumption of innocence. In spite of the investigation, I’m happy to offer congratulations to Mr. Newton.

You can watch the rest of the speech in the video above. The announcement of the award begins at about 1:30.

    “My parents do a lot of things behind the scenes that go unnoticed.”

    The second those words rolled off Cam’s tongue, I betcha he wished he could have them back.

    Classic. Just classic. 😉

    He wishes a few more things would have gone unnoticed!

    I cracked up when I heard him say that.
