The Sunday Night Football introductions have had some entertaining moments recently, and Carolina Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy took advantage of his moment in the spotlight.
*Update: Monday, Dec. 9 at 6:36 p.m. ET
Hardy explained his popular introduction, via Jonathan Jones of the Charlotte Observer:
"It’s just the Kraken. Mystical. It’s where he lives at.
I can do whatever I want. I’m the Kraken. If you feel like you can ask the Kraken personally where he goes to school at, and prove me wrong, then I feel like I’ll change it.
That’s not where I said I went, though. Now, G Hardy went to Ole Miss. That’s mind-blowing right there."
"I did (wear sunglasses). That was kind of my touch though. Figured why not? YOLO."
"I was excited about it. I’ve been talking about it for years. It was an honor. I figured I’d have some fun with it and enjoy the moment if it never comes back."
If you weren't a fan of him after seeing his introduction on Sunday night, those quotes have to win you over.

When it was his turn, he said, "Kraken, Hogwarts."
The shades just put his introduction over the top.
