Who else remembers...

I think I watched every special that week and every pre game show that day....

But the two things that stick out in my head and who knows why were I think it was Letterman made a joke about bringing a Die Hard Panther's fan up on stage and no one showed up so John Boy and Billy bought a Billboard across the street from his studio that said something to the effect of GO PANTHERS!

And Nelly (Whom I hate) being asked who would win the game and his response was... "Ker-er-lina"

Random but that's what I remember pre-game. I also remember being in college at UNCW and the very next morning getting out of the car and some D-bag got out of his truck with a Pat's jersey on.... I yelled at him the whole way across the parking lot.

...the anticipation you felt leading up to Super Bowl XXXVIII?

I remember feeling like a kid the week before Christmas. Day couldn't get here fast enough.

I just remember the vibe around Charlotte in general. There was support everywhere. I remember driving by the stadium a week before the game and there were people having their picture taken with all the statues. I miss that vibe around the city the most.

I had just moved back to Charlotte (grew up here) and I was really happy about that, so for me the anticipation of the game was double on top of that. I went to rallies downtown, at bars, there was Panthers stuff all over the city. It was great. Damn, now I'm sad.

Yeah, I remember the energy in Charlotte surrounding the Panthers at the time, miss those days.

I watched every minute of SB week coverage like a junkie, thought about what an incredible party it would be in this town when we won.

Forgot about the Letterman thing, what a d-bag.

I still get sick to my stomach when I think about Venetari jogging on to field to win it for NE. I guess the only thing that will wash it away will be Cam wearing a "Carolina Panthers NFL Champions" hat while holding the Lombardi

I can remember watching that Eagles championship game on TV and not being able to sit down at all ... pacing back and forth, nervous as a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs. When we won, I was elated and stunned and couldn't stop saying, "We're going to the Super Bowl! We're going to the Super Bowl! Oh, my god, we're going to the Super Bowl!"

I immediately started making plans for the most awesome Super Bowl party ever at my house, because I just knew I couldn't afford to go to the Super Bowl, especially with ticket prices what they would be. But before the next morning, I had decided come hell or high water, I was going. We were lucky enough to get face-value tickets ($800 each) and booked our travel with Broach Sports Tours, and we were on our way.

It was a great experience - of course, bringing home a win would have been much better, but it was the best time we could have had without bringing home that win.

Don't know if I would be physically able, but I definitely would try to make it to the game the next time we're there ... and I believe it will be sooner rather than later.

It was such a long time ago that it doesn't even matter to me anymore.

Bingo.

I remember after the NFC Championship Game...I was 16, and my dad drove me, my 15 year old brother and my 14 year old cousin to the stadium when the team flight landed back in Charlotte. It was so cold and loud...everyone in the city was honking and yelling all night. When the team arrived there were what had to be several thousand people in front of the stadium.
