Panthro

My Sunday schedule just got a bit more flexible...

After church yesterday my wife asked me if I wanted to go to the mountains for the day. I told her that I would like to watch the Panthers game at 1pm, that John Fox was returning, Peyton Manning, etc...

So there she sat cheering alongside me...

Well after watching that debacle I am no longer going out of my way to watch the Panthers this year.

What has this team done to earn 4 hours of my life every Sunday for the next 6 weeks?

Anyone want to go apple picking next Sunday? Maybe I play 18. Maybe rake those damn leaves.

I'll still watch. Maybe not every second of every play but it will be on. I'll probably go to another couple of games too, now that tix will be free or close to it for the rest of the season.

The team doesn't excite me at all anymore. Still, I continue watching hoping there will be some drastic change. It's kind of like following politics in America. You sort of accept nearly every politician is a liar supporting the same extreme ideologies, but you read the articles anyway hoping there will be some small glimmer of hope.

At least I know the Panthers will improve before the USA has decent and honest politicians since that most likely won't happen in my lifetime.

I think Ive been coming to this same conclusion for a couple of years. This year has just really driven home the point.

I traded maybe the last 70 degree day of the year in my kayak for 4 hours of boredom an frustration.

And the really bad thing was I didnt expect them to win, I just expected then to look better than a division II high school team. Yesterday we looked like the team Spurrier was talking about when he said that 'Bama could beat an NFL team.

I left at half time to go to the Y. Laughed when I got there and Dever had ran up the score even more. Up until then I hadn't missed a snap this year.

I play flag football every Sunday morning. Past few weeks I have left between the first and second game to rush home, shower, and make it to the bar in time for the game.

I'm playing in the second game for the rest of this year at least.

    • lol no one takes him seriously. He gets a courage award for bringing his hand-me-down  dad-politics into ttb while still asking to himself, "what does ttb mean again?"
    • I'm extremely pumped by this addition. It has to be the biggest addition since the team came back to Charlotte. I was too young to follow the original talented Hornets (Im sad), so I'm not going back that far. People and fans can say what they want about D12, but the man still have a lot left in his tank. And, Im tired of hearing how he doesnt fit in today's game anymore. There are only a handfull of big men today that I can really say, can shoot the ball: Davis, Towns, Embiid, Cousins and Aldridge.  Howard can still dominate! That's all that matters. The only neg I will give Howard is that I do see a lack of desire/effort to play at times. But, I believe MJ can help motivate him back to being a dominant big man again for next two years here.  Dwight Howard averaged a double-double last season: 13.5 ppg, 12.7 rpg, 1.2 bpg, and 1.4 apg.  D12 had "53", I said FIFTY-THREE double doubles last season. He had six games where he averaged 20 rebounds or more.  Guess who was the last Bobcats/Hornets era to even come close to that number.....Emeka Okafor in 2004 as a rookie with 47 double doubles. Then Big Al had 42 in 2013. Howard did that while averaging 29.7 min per game. If you count out his 2014 season where he only played in 41 games, last season was the LEAST amount of minutes played per game in Howard's career.  Only three guys (Towns, Whiteside and Gobert) averaged more double doubles than Howard in 2016. And only four other guys ( Whiteside, Drummond, DJordan and Gobert) averaged more RPG than Howard last season. Other than Towns, none of those guys mentioned above can really shoot the ball any better than Howard. But, teams still want them on their teams for big contracts.
