Today is an exciting day in the Carolinas. Every gas station has portable stands open selling Panther gear. Every bakery department is painted with black and blue icing. You can’t go anywhere without running into someone wearing Panther pride.
Coming from Philly, and a die-hard Eagle fan, I understand team loyalty. I still root for Eagles first (even if the play Carolina), but you can’t help but to fall in love with the Panthers. We have been in North Carolina for almost 20 years. The Panthers were a young team back then, they’ve had their ups and downs, but the community here loves their team.
What’s not to love. But this year, under Cam’s leadership, it had been FUN to watch. To see the players acting like big kids. To see the eyes of the children as they are handed the touchdown ball.
The team has brought a new energy to the Carolinas. So this Eagle fan is wishing the team a win. It would be the first in their history as they head to the SuperBowl for the second time. If you aren’t a fan of the Panthers or the Broncos, there is always the commercials.
