Hi all,

I'm Steve, and I figured it was about time to stop lurking and introduce myself. I've been a Panther fan from the beginning, although I was young at the time. I've been involved with the military in one way or another my whole life, and my family was stationed at Ft Bragg (8 yrs) during the time when both the Panthers and Hurricanes came to be. Although I've moved around a lot, my allegiance has always remained with the Panthers and the Canes (I was in basic training when the canes won the cup). Courtesy of the USAF, I found myself stationed in Oklahoma, where in the last few months I have transitioned back into civilian life and am currently working towards an engineering degree. My wife is still in, so theoretically it's only a matter of time before my family finds itself on the road again. There aren't too many Panthers and Canes fans out here in Oklahoma, and the only other Panther fan I know just moved to Europe. Until I meet another Carolina fan with whom I can yell, scream, cheer, and get strange looks (Hey, a Panthers fan... in Oklahoma?!?!), I'll share my enthusiasm and frustration here instead of at the local Buffalo Wild WIngs.

-Steve

Good evening,

Have read several posts here over the year and look forward to sharing insight and the occasional idea or 2.

Otherwise, I am hoping that the Panthers disappoint a lot of you and fulfill Kalil's idea that you are indeed SB bound. This Year.

Cheers and I hope it's fun on every visit...

Casual reader of the Huddle and now I decided to make the jump. Grew up in Charlotte (been a Panther's fan since day 1) and currently live in Los Angeles. Looking forward to the 2012 season. Cheers all!

Bummer.

Lot's of football talent in that area it seems. My girlfriend was good friends with Clay Matthews (still is a little bit) when they went to high school together.

Haha yeah the Matthews family is in Sherman Oaks. My girlfriend is actually working with a girl right now that's dating a dude on the niners and he's best friends with Clay. He took her over to Clay's house one year and he was in his pajamas begging his mom to make him breakfast.

Suuuuch a bad ass.

So yeah I am one of those guys thats been reading the forum for a few months after I figured out our companies filters didnt block this fan site and this fan site only. I dunno if thats a good thing or not so take it as it is but i guess its a complament to the admins and regulars on the site. I am a 360 gamer and a fan of carolina for as long as the teams been in existance. I follow gaming and roosterteeth productions and i cant stand Saints* fans. Also Grammer nazis be warned i will annoy u,
