Official Panthers/Falcons Tailgate Thread

29 posts in this topic

Panthers take on the Falcons at 1pm. Tailgating starts at 7am. This week we will present the bikes to the Marine Corps Reserve in front of the North Gate at 10:45am.

The tailgate this week is sponsored by Inimicus and Sagacious Panther. Please thank them for their generosity as it makes tailgating easy for so many people. They donated the money for all the food and drinks so that all everybody else has to do is show up, partake, and donate. Because it's fully sponsored, 100% of all monies donated go to buying bikes to give to needy families at Christmas and all of this is done through the Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program. To date, the Huddle has donated over 20,000 dollars and more than 600 bikes over the years.

The food this week is being catered onsite by Alex Ranucci, owner of Ranuccis BBQ and Grill. Please visit his website, www.ranuccis.com for more information on his restaurant and all of your catering needs.

Here's the rest of the information, any other questions this is the thread to ask:

Where? Our tailgate location is at the corner of Tryon and 3rd St. walk into the open air lot from the sidewalk and look for the Toys for Tots banner or ranuccis cooker.

Who? Anywhere from about 50+ people some on the website and many not, just friends. Anyone is invited even opposing fans.

What do I bring? Most everything is provided, food and non-alcoholic drinks. We have chairs if you require one. If you drink alcohol bring your own because we don't provide any of that.

When? Tailgating starts at 7am and food is put up around 12:30pm as people are mostly headed to the stadium by then.

Hope to see you all Sunday.

Rumors are that Santa will be making his annual appearance before the game at the huddle tailgate. Come early to catch him sober because as the day unfolds he becomes a wretched mess bloated with beer, Ranuccis turds, hot wings, and cigar smoke.

Official Survival Guild to a Falcons/Panthers Game

Rule 1- Upon entering the stadium you may find yourself in a sea of black and red uniforms. Don't worry, you are in Charlotte. You didn't pull a hangover and end up in atlanta after a long saturday night of partying. These people what we like to call "dirty birds" and are to be avoided at all cost. Do not make eye contact or engage in conversation with these creatures. They are annoying and obnoxious.

Rule 2- Drink heavily!! There will be plays in the game that you wise you didn't see, and surly wise not to remember. A steady stream for 4 bud lights per quarter will ensure not memory for the loss that is sure to come.

Rule 3- Stock up with brews before the 4th quarter. This is the quarter where beer sales stop and the panthers give away the game. You will need a beer to wash down the taste of defeat

Rule 4- Cab it home!! Or sober up at the Cabaret. ( My personal choice )

Follow these rules and remember your training...

I've been on here since 2006 and I've never been to a tailgate. Am I really missing anything?

    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
    • Shep, Curtis Samuel, maybe Charles Johnson--Funchess in year 3--that could be solid.  Move KB to TE (or keep him away from the Krispy Kremes) and this could be a special group.
