Well, this almost makes up for missing the actual concert.
A couple weeks ago, newly-signed Los Angeles Chargers kicker Cameron Dicker shared a funny story after he kicked the game-winning field goal against the Falcons in Week 9, which was his debut game with the new team.
He told team reporter Lindsey Thiry that he was about to leave his house for a Carrie Underwood concert when he got the call from his agent that the Chargers wanted to sign him.
Chargers kicker Cameron Dicker says he was about to head to a Carrie Underwood concert last week when he got the call that LA was signing him. Today, he kicks a game-winning field goal.
The story kinda blew up, because it’s just plain funny and he wound up winning the game in such dramatic fashion, so you knew Carrie was gonna hear about it eventually.
And ahead of this past Sunday’s broadcast of Sunday Night Football between the 49ers and Chargers, she sent Cameron a special message, inviting him to any other show of his choosing in the future:
“Hey Cameron, Carrie Underwood here. A little birdie told me that you were on your way to our show in Austin not too long ago when you got the call to go play for the Chargers.
I just wanted to say congratulations and good luck tonight on ‘Sunday Night Football.’ I would love to have you out for a make-up concert, any show you want to come to, just let us know, and we’ll get you hooked up.
I know people, have a great night, good luck. Hope to see you soon.”
First you win the game like the one against the Falcons in your first game with the Chargers, and then Carrie Underwood personally invites you to a show?
I have to imagine he got some major respect from his new teammates for that one…
And here’s a look at the aforementioned game-winning field goal against the Falcons, featuring the guys on the team making a few great jokes about Cameron and his Instagram handle (which is really @dickerthekicker, no lie):
She’s currently out on her Denim & Rhinestones tour in support of her new album of the same name, so hopefully Cameron can catch a show once this NFL season winds down (which will likely be sooner rather than later for the Chargers at this point).
