I've never gone to a preseason home game for two reasons:

-Paying full price is absolutely insane to me. I just looked at Stubhub and there are plenty of cheap tickets to be had right now, but still, I wouldn't spend more than $10. You can currently pay $700+ for some Row 1 tickets Friday or you can spend gas money and go to Spartanburg for free on Thursday and get even closer to the players and coaches.

- Even if I had free tickets, I still think I would get more out of watching these games at home on my TV. Preseason football is all about analysis. I'll be hopping in the Huddle chat room Friday night and talking about what I'm seeing along with the other people there. That's a lot easier to do with the game broadcast plus DVR even with the new awesome video boards at the stadium.

 

So what reasons do you have for going to these preseason games? Unless you just want to tailgate and hang out with your buddies (which I DO get), I don't understand.

Panthers wearing white at home.

Female Panther fans in stands wearing white to match the uniform.

60% chance of rain.

Girls drinking beer in short-shorts and flip-flops, my favorite team on the the field, the smell of charcoal in the air and I don't have to get up early the next morning; word.

I always get stuck behind people who know nothing about football and families asking me to stop cursing.

You guys have honestly convinced me. You have made a stranger change their mind on the Internet. You've basically caught Bigfoot.

I know what you mean. I had the opportunity to go but I chose not to. I find that during the preseason, I'm so geeked for panther football, I want to watch every play up close. Plus my wife is 8 1/2 months pregnant so the last thing I want is to be shitfaced uptown and get a call that she's going into labor.


Kind of selfish on her part, now that I think about it.

Don't you just love the half-turns and squinted faces the polo shirt and nike athletic shorts combo wearing soccer mom and her brood of 4 chuckle head Perrier water drinking kids and totally effeminate husband who you listen to trying to explain who the guy is with the ball and why, while completely butchering the concept of the game to these numb nuts. Meanwhile I'm pulling my hair out pounding beers to keeps from putting my foot to the back side of one of their skulls.

Ghjyrsxbjioljtgsghsxazaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!
