yep. pretty much ancient history at this point.
It was such a long time ago that it doesn't even matter to me anymore.

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.

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 remember...different Super Bowl obviously, but yes...like a kid on Christmas morning.
and sorry, no offence, but I too remember the NFC Conference Championship game much better and like to watch that from time to time

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.
