For better or for worse, Cam Newton still acts like an adolescent.
The Carolina Panthers quarterback is as full of youthful exuberance as he is immensely talented. The former of those traits was on full display Thursday as a train rolled past the Panthers’ practice.

Say what you want about Newton, but it is somewhat refreshing to see a professional athlete unafraid to have a little fun. That was especially true Sunday afternoon, when Newton toyed with the Green Bay Packers before throwing a touchdown pass.
