Pics/video From Kick Cf

As promised, here's some photos and videos I took from the third row in the Providence High School stadium at Kick CF. Attendees included: Gross (duh), Cam, Smitty, Stew, DeAngelo, TD, Beason, Olsen (my girl's new obsession), Kalil, Bell, Travelle Wharton, and more.

It was only $10 per person, and it wasn't even that crowded. Maybe filled up half of one side of the stadium. This made it even more "intimate" than training camp. Players were good about interacting with fans/signing autographs. As usual, Cam was the star of the show. He clowned on everyone: teammates, fans, and the Power Players. This is one of the many reasons why I'm glad I moved to Charlotte in 2010; not only easier to get to and from games, but many more chances to see our players in a more personal setting.

Jordan Gross raised about $100K for CF research through this event, I believe. Win-win for everyone involved.

Smitty bout to go all Ken Lucas on Cam:

And here's the videos I took. Camera was on a low battery so I could only film a little bit, but figured the Cam segments would probably be the most entertaining.

If you live in Charlotte and had nothing to do yesterday and still didn't go to this, shame on you. But there's always next year. Enjoy.

Thanks for the videos, what a tiny field! Was every kick over the fence?

CF stands for Cystic Fibrosis, if anyone is curious. It is an autosomal recessive chromosome disorder, affecting children of European ancestry mainly. If you have two parents who are carriers, there's a 25% chance the child has it. It is somewhat rare.

That's a great thing organized and brought to life by the players. It looked fun and hopefully it will help someone out there.

A lot of guys looking kind of chunky at this point. Good to see Travelle enjoying himself still even though he won't be on the team.

In this pictures with Cam posing, I thought Bismack Biyombo and Micheal Jordan were 2 of the people wearing black shirts. That made me think that it would be cool to have a Bobcats vs. Panthers kickball game.

There were several, but not as many as you might think. For example, Stew's first outing was embarrassing. He kicked one foul, then another, then popped up another foul and it was caught for an out. He slunk back to the bench, and Cam got up from his spot on the bench and pointed down at the seat, demanding Stew sit. It was pretty funny, and Stew laughed it off and gave Cam a shove.

After that, DeAngelo went up and kicked a home run and Stew ran on the field to run the bases with him (ala Hank Aaron in the 70's I presume) and they did their double trouble dance thing at home plate.
