Does Santa even know he's being tracked?

Or does this have something to do with the Panthers not putting their logo midfield like AK asked Santa for last christmas?

We have a special "Santa" Checklist ;)

Its really Cool for us because the News Station comes and films us at work "Tracking Santa"... Fun for the Kids ;)

And pORN sHOP-- There is no money wasted on this. Its a service you get for free ;)

It all started way back in the 50's when a newspaper ran an add about calling in to find out about Santa Clause and where he was.

Well the # was one digit off. Some kid called in and a Colonel at NORAD got the phone call. He couldnt dare not break the kids heart so he acted like Santa, gave him some "HO-HO-HO's" and wished him a Merry Christmas.

Later they kept getting a ton of calls, then the Colonel has his folks pretend to "track Santa" and give reports on where he was.

Thus was born "Santa Tracking" by NORAD.

Its really cool for us, we have a PC based system we use now. We have Santa "symbology" that shows up on our screen, and displays his current position.

Awesome stuff for the kids :D

    • So we have already picked up Kelvin's fifth year option.  If I gaze into my crystal ball this is what I see happening. This upcoming season (year four) for Kelvin, will be a somewhat of a disappointment, same for Funchess. However, our offense will benefit from the varied and viable options we have provided Cam.  Panthers win Superbowl beating the Patriots and Olsen retires.  Panthers draft a tight end with pick 32.  Kelvin will swear in the offseason that he's taking things seriously as they will need him to be a leader with Olsen retiring., hint: he will because that oh so coveted second contract is looming and Kelvin is no spring chicken (already 26).  Year 5 comes. Kelvin has worked himself into shape and looks amazing. Basically everything we've always wanted from him. However, Funchess has a great season as well, remember Funchess is only (22) right now. He probably came out a year too early and it historically takes WRs a couple years to hit their stride.  Big time decision will come down to Gettleman and co. and I ultimately think we move on from Benjamin where he goes on to sign with the Los Angeles Rams. 
    • Competition makes the most of everyone. Gano had an off year and might be spurred on by the challenge. This guy seems like a good kid, but only one or two new kickers make it into the league each year... it's a hard gig to land.
