Went out to Jordan Gross's kickball tournament, participants included:

Cam Newton

Jimmy Clausen

Matt Moore

Steve Smith

DeAngelo Williams

Ryan Kalil

Travelle Wharton

Geoff Schwartz

McKenzie Bernadeau

Chris Harris

Armanti Edwards

Kevin Donnelly

Cam showed up in dress shoes, didn't expect to actually play but the guys talked him into it, at one point he was playing 3rd base with Clausen playing short stop and they were both wearing # 2. QCB from WFNZ was the MC and at one point when it was Cam's turn to kick QCB told him to take his shoes off and do it "kunta kinta" style, LOL

They were giving away tickets to Panthers games, etc... Gross was on the microphone as well and QCB asked him if the tickets were in Smith's luxury suite, Gross said "nah, that's all cleaned out". There were several moments when Gross had the crowd show Smitty some love and commented how we were trying to keep him in Charlotte. At one point, a lady standing right infront of me asked for a picture with Smitty and he climbed up on the fence to take it with her, after the picture she asked him what it would take for him to stay and he shook his head... could have just as easily been shaking his head like "I'm not answering that" but it was an interesting response none the less.

Anyhow, it was a great event for a great cause... the huddle should put together a team next year to compete.

I miss that guy sometimes.

He was a good team player.

Makes me wonder, would Rivera want him back here?

You can tell he never wanted to leave

I miss Harris a lot too. He probably doesn't fit with the youth movement, but he'll always be a Panther in my eyes.

One other thing...you have to give big props to Jimmy Clausen for how he has handled the arrival of Cam. He had every excuse to go into a shell for awhile. I am sure his teammates have noticed as well. Way to go Jimmy!

Wouldn't be surprised if Rivera did want him back as depth in time (but not a starter right now TBH), or if Harris ended up getting a shot at coaching here when all was said and done.

The Bears drafted yet another safety this year (every year since Harris has been drafted they've drafted one, lol) so...

Believe it or not this actually was a homerun!

Is it just me or does Clausen look like a dufus even when he is kicking a homerun?? He is our dufus though and I hope he has a good season :)

Jimmy has been a real stand up guy through this. He most definitely should be commended. I have much more respect for JC now.

Great pics. Great to see Cam hanging with his teammates. The Panthers are hot as a firecracker right now. Wofford is gonna be a zoo this year.

Don't know. After leaving Harris has routinely trashed the Panthers ownership. No chance he'll be back.

Unfortunate too. Harris was one of my favorite Panthers.
