Colin Kaepernick Wears Hat Backwards, Infuriates Sportswriter

Colin Kaepernick beat the Panthers in Carolina, propelling San Francisco to the NFC Championship game. Then, Kaepernick wore his hat backwards. I haven’t actually seen a photo of Kaepernick’s backward hat, but I did see him on the sideline with his hat forwards. This didn’t sit well with Sal Maiorana, the Buffalo Bills beat writer for the Democrat & Chronicle.

A cursory google search turns up a shocking fact: Lots of professional quarterbacks have been known to don a backward hat. This is something people in their 20s – gasp! – often do.

Let’s move on, shall we? The media’s obsession with picking apart all things Kaepernick should be fun this week – and doubly so if San Francisco advances to the Super Bowl again.
