Carolina Panthers star linebacker Luke Kuechly has already recorded a pick-six in each of the team’s two playoff games. But Kuechly isn’t done yet—he has his sights set on more. And Kuechly is preparing for the big game by intercepting everything possible.
“Yeah, it’s really annoying,” said a Panthers locker room attendant. “The other day I tried to throw a towel into the laundry basket in the locker room and he grabbed it out of midair and ran around yelling ‘Interception! Interception!’ for like an hour.”
Since the conference championship, Kuechly has intercepted thirteen towels, five Under Armour shirts, a friend’s car keys, a cat that was trying to jump onto a couch, cornerback Josh Norman, a frisbee, a soccer ball, and a muffin.
“Not only does he intercept things,” Stewart continued, “he insists on ‘running them back for touchdowns.’ If he doesn’t hit an end zone, he just keeps going. It’s fine when we’re in the stadium but when we’re anywhere else it’s a real problem.”
If he does record another pick-six on Sunday, Kuechly will join—THIS IS ME, LUKE KUECHLY. I JUST INTERCEPTED THIS ARTICLE. INTERCEPTION INTERCEPTION INTERCEPTION
