Did not see the segment either, but it is a travesty to hear that play wasn't top 5. Further evidence of the Anti-Panthers bias in the MSM.

Since we're sharing our "where were you stories" about that game, I guess I'll share mine. I was driving down to my uncle's house just outside of Washington DC that night (staying there for the night, on the way driving down to NC from Rhode Island). But these were the pre-GPS days, and I got extremely lost near his house. So I had to listen to all of regulation and the first three or four minutes of overtime in the car -- you can't imagine how agonizing it was being lost AND hearing the Panthers blow that 11-point lead.

But all's well that end's well -- found the place in time to catch most of the first overtime, and Smitty's game-winner. Good times.

That was the last game he played on his birthday. Tomorrow is the next time he'll play on his birthday...

Yeah that play is definitely one of those, "where were you when..." moments as a Panthers fan. I remember it pretty well. I had to work and I was working on an assembly line for Ford. I had a small color TV set up at my workstation for the game. It's hard to work and do the job at the same time so I'd miss some plays here and there, but during the overtimes I had our upgrader (who is kind of like a utility worker who knows all the jobs in our section) cover my job while I watched the overtime. When Smitty caught that ball, I was yelling so loud that the supervisor thought someone had gotten mangled in the line or something.

I lost my voice for 3 days. Had to take 3 days off of work because I worked at a call center. Well worth it.

I was in Lancaster, PA visiting my grandfather who had a double by-pass. (he didn't watch the game... and it was before the game anyway... LOL but, I digress)

yet, I watched the game on my grandmothers lil tv in her room, because she refused to put the game on the big TV... and my uncle is a RAMS fan... so you can imagine with him over how awesome that felt! :D

I will never ever forget that! fly'n my Panthers flag while Drive'n back to NY thru PA was interesting 2 days later. ;)
