The secret is out.

Someone has discovered the winning combination:

Sombreros + Football = victory

An NBC station in Charlotte, N.C. sponsored a touchdown dance contest. The prize: Tickets to this weekend's Carolina Panthers game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Seems that a certain accessory, used in conjunction with shaking maracas over a spinning pigskin, was the driving force in their win:

The sombrero dancing guys are the winners of the WCNC/Charlotte Observer 6 for 6 touchdown contest.

Contestants had six seconds to show their best six point touchdown dance before Sunday's Panthers game. Wiewers went online to cast their vote all week. Chris Cranston, Jackson Price, Brian Ottinger and Sean Haggerty received 38.31 percen of the vote. They won tickets to the Panthers vs. Buccaneers game December 11.

Guess I'll have to bust out the Victory Sombrero on Sunday.

I think I still have a sombrero somewhere from when I left TX last year, should I send it over to you?

I am a shelter for wayward sombreros.
