DENVER (CBS4) – The Super Bowl is upon us, but news leading up to the game hasn’t had much to do with football itself.

The Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers arrived in California on Sunday, and one player’s pants stole the arrival show. Panthers quarterback Cam Newton donned zebra striped slacks with yellow designs, reportedly an $850 piece of clothing from Versace.

The outrageous fashion statement was irresistible for social media fans, and non-fans, sparking talk even on CBS This Morning.

Naturally, Gayle King and Norah O’Donnell bet their male co-host Charlie Rose to not only find (the pants had sold out quickly after Newton’s statement was made), but wear the bold Versace pants.

Well, Charlie came through, and appeared on CBS This Morning Tuesday wearing Cam Newton-style pants.
