I know it was a wild ride for me watching during the 2005 season while in Korea.

Good find, I sent an email. I remember watching one game vs the Cowboys on board the USS Wasp.

I missed all of the first Panthers season while doing circles in the water off the coast of Bosnia.

I salute you all. Your sacrifice in uniform was made worse by being deprived your beloved Panthers. Although, during our Cardiac Cat moments you might have been better off :)

If Carolina is the most followed team in the military, I'd think it has something to do with the Carolinas having so many military bases and training centers (there's like 5 bases within 50 miles of where I live). You go off to boot camp, and you learn two things: love of country, and love of Panthers football ;)

I sent the guy an email as well. I'm really glad the NFL came out with the game pass set up this year so when I get up at 2 am to catch the game, I get more than just a radio broadcast. Funny thing is, I didn't even grow up in NC or SC, but in southwest VA.

I'll have to send them a note -- thanks!

It looks like I'll return from next deployment just before the next Super Bowl!

I spent that horrible 1-15 season in Kuwait. I watched 2005-06 season in Iraq on AFN (whenever possible). Watched Panthers-Giants playoff game at Baghdad International Airport after they delayed our flight because of dust storms. I was glad to see a lot of Giants fans crying.

Out here in Iraq (again) and I can't wait to watch the Panthers on AFN - if those jackasses would set up the damn dish already.

Oh, and I sent an email.

Here's to the Panthers winning the Super Bowl this year.

Our tailgate has had the honor of hosting the vets that led the team out of the tunnel this year for the Vets day celebration, along with all the games last year. Amazing bunch of guys, and some of them have literally been through hell.

A couple of them were telling us about this "Wounded Warriors" project, and they got to go - all expenses paid - on a wild fishing trip in Alaska; their stories were hilarious....

Thanks to all the service men and woman for the sacrifices made in keeping the U.S free. Tickets would be a very deserved treat.

Since it's the Observer doing it, they're probably just going to do a story about the Panther following in the military. Probably not tickets.

Regardless, I think it's pretty cool that there are so many Panthers fans in the military. I had no idea.

I emailed the guy my vonage number and he called and interviewed me. Just asked me about how long I've been a fan and what I have to go through to watch the games. I feel for you guys deployed this football season. I was gone last year, but we sucked so it was a bit easier. Stay safe!
