Now that it's almost been nine years, I'm almost glad that we didn't win, in a way. I can tell you right now that it's going to mean so much more when we do win because of how close we were in that game and how long we'll have had to wait by the time we win a Super Bowl. When the Heels won it all in 2005, it was the first time one of my teams had won a title, and it came after nine years of me being a fan. It was an emotional night for sure, but it's not going to have the same meaning as when the Panthers win the Super Bowl. Carolina obviously has the tradition and the respect. But the Panthers are always overlooked, always disrespected... nobody ever gives them a chance. That's why it's going to mean so much on that glorious night when we finally win it all. I've pictured what that moment will be like countless times in my head... I can't wait to actually live it one day. The tears will be flowing, no doubt.
