NC in 46th? Come on. The following is a short list of things from North Carolina that make Washington look like a total shithole: Andy Griffith, Charles Kuralt, John Coltrane, George Clinton, the Carolina Panthers, the Charlotte Hornets, Duke, UNC, Thomas Wolfe, Dale Earnhardt Sr. and Jr., Ben Folds, Vince McMahon (father of a sport even more scripted than NFL), Sugar Ray Leonard, Billy Graham, Kellie Pickler, Richard Petty, Floyd Patterson, Howard Cosell, Zach Galifanakis. Michael Jordan – the greatest athlete of our generation – grew up here, played in HS and college here and owns the Hornets here. Cheerwine was invented here. Pepsi was invented here. Headache powders came from here (you're welcome, sports fans). Hell, PUTT-PUTT WAS INVENTED HERE. The first successful powered flight by man? Yeah, that happened in North Carolina, too. North Carolina not only has pretty beaches on its coastline, it also has some of the most interactive sharks you'll find anywhere. And the Blue Ridge Mountains look kickass as well. So suck on that, every other state.
- 2005 rigged loss at home against Dallas made me want to rage cry We blocked their FG, the replay showed we blocked it and the game should have been over "Hurr, durr, running into the kicker" - 2010 loss to the Browns Oh my God, i kept fuging punching my gf's bed just in a rage bc I just wanted one more win (thanks Cards) - all playoff losses hurt. I'm not sure I was truly angry after any except maybe '08 To end this on a good note, things that made me happy and kept me from needing psychiatric help for Panther games: - being at this year's playoff win over Arizona - talking poo to the Saints fans after we beat them in '13 - being at the 2005 beatdown over Minnesota where Jake threw for like 800 yards, Smith rowed the boat and Gamble nuked Culpepper's career - 2003 NFC Championship Game
Overrated but too early to call a bust Of course Batman chimes in with Peppers being a first-ballot HOFer. UNC paid good money to have him play football and take fake classes Other current superstars according to Batman: Gio Bernard Eric Ebron TJ Tates Quan Sturdivant Quint Coples Marvin Austin Robert Quinn Hakeem Nicks Tre Boston Vince Carter #staywoke
