I love the full-page ad Ryan Kalil took out in Wednesday's Charlotte Observer. Just think: If every pro athlete in every city took out a full-page ad in the local newspaper we'd never have to lay anybody off again.
Kalil is a bright guy and the ad reflects that.
The ad is entitled: Why the Carolina Panthers will win Super Bowl XLVII.
Despite the premise, I don't find it brash. Kalil believes. And he was willing to let everybody -- teammates, employers, fans, media -- know how strongly.
