Official Panthers/Seahawks Tailgate Thread

Seahawks come to town for a 4:15 pm matchup this Sunday thus giving us a looooong day to tailgate. This week's tailgate takes a break from donating to Toys for Tots and instead 100% of all proceeds will go to the children of Sport Youngblood fund administered by Sport's mother who will be in attendance at the tailgate on Sunday. Sport was a fixture and foundation of this website and these tailgates from day 1. He passed away too early from a heart attack at the age of 38. He was known and missed by many, many posters on this board.

This week's sponsor is long time poster and moderator Hawk as well as Bo From Monroe. Please be sure to thank them for their generous contribution because without sponsors we couldn't do these.

This weeks tailgate is catered by www.ranuccis.com Ranucci provides competition quality BBQ and just about any other food item you could think of for all of your catering needs or visit his restaurant in Belmont, NC. Ranuccis has finished Top 10 in the Memphis nationals twice and pretty much takes home a trophy in every competition entered. The food this week will consiste of pulled pork BBQ and all the fixin's like slaw, beans, buns, chips, sodas, waters, etc. There may be some other surprise menu items added during the week so keep checking back for updates.

Here is the usual info, and any other questions about the tailgate please direct to this thread:

Where? WE HAVE A NEW LOCATION THIS YEAR DUE TO DEMOLITION OF THE OLD LOT. WE ARE LOCATED AT A LARGE LOT AT THE INTERSECTION OF TRYON, 3RD ST, AND CHURCH. WE WILL HAVE TENTS WITH A HUDDLE BANNER ON IT. Located directly across 3rd street from Picassos downtown and we are most easily found by entrancing by foot off of Tryon you will run right into us.

What? Lots of friggin' badass food and non-alcoholic drinks. BYOB if you want to drink your own booze. Tents for rain or for shade provided as well as chairs for people that need them.

When? We start at 8 A.M. with breakfast from Bojangles and after 3:30 you probably won't get anything to eat cuz we're going into the stadium at that point. Get there early for the good food and to hang out with other Panthers fans like yourself.

Who? Anywhere from about 50 faithful fans who show up every game over the course of the day to another 50 stragglers and newbs. You never know who will show up and opposing fans are certainly welcome. If you have no other place to tailgate and want to maximize the gameday experience this certainly kicks ass over just pulling your car up to the stadium an hour before kickoff and walking in. You'll get better food here than any heat lamped fries you'll get in the stadium and have a good time tailgating no matter what the score is for the game.

Any other questions this is the thread to ask in.

Dude tickets will be a dime a dozen. Panther fan apathy + Seahawks = free tickets at game time

Just curious SCP ,does the calender say December? Maybe I've gone through a time warp. but I could have sworn that we play a 16 game schedule. Do you relish wussing out this early in the season?

Love it...nothing against the Toys for Tots drive of course but it's nice to see we are following through with this. Thanks Hawk and Bo for the sponsorship! Now get your asses to the tailgate!
