Mr Smith,

You don't know me. I am just one of countless Panthers fans who want to say thank you for staying.

You see, being a Panthers fan is not an easy thing. We don't enjoy the conventional things that other fans around the league get to enjoy. Things like "winning", for example.

Being a Panthers fan in many ways is a practice in depravity. We choose to support a team that season after season rips out our very soul and treats it like a depends diaper at the Ponderosa. Once that happens, we are left numb and cold. Alone in this cruel world desperately seeking the slightest hint of hope, we follow with our hearts and our wallets. Our inevitable pain lessened by tears and hard liquor.

Mr Smith, you have provided the occasional peanut in the mound of crap we have seen for three years. The tasty morsel that reminds us of what it was like when we cheered for a team that at least had a chance of sniffing the post season 25% of the time.

And for that, Mr Smith, we are mighty glad you stayed.

[single tear]

Smitty is the Carolina Panthers.

Through all the losing and poor management you can count on one thing:

Ferocious game play on Sundays by #89.

Thanks for what you do and who you are Smitty.

It is absolutely terrifying to think of what this franchise might have been without Smitty. Cheers to you 89, you-are-the-man.

Reading this thread with Lionel Richie crooning in the background has been one hell of an experience. More threads need theme music right off the top.

Having said that, I hope Smitty does know that he is, as you say, the lone peanut in the mound of crap. Thanks Steve, I'm mighty glad you stayed.
