Superbowl = Assured, and an apology

Recommended Posts

So yesterday I was cleaning the crap out from under my deck and I came across something I thought was lost...




My Panthers superbowl commemorative beer mug.


How did it get there? I now vaguely remember throwing it outside in a John Fox induced rage in 2006 or 2007.


So, it appears I have been the jinx of this team all along. My apologies.



The good news is the beer mug is back in its proper place. Jinx over. You're welcome.

Do not underestimate the symbolic value of the mug--even if you consider 2008, the curse of the lost mug turned Jake Delhomme into Tommy John and resurrected his old WFL teammate Kurt Warner from the grave (he was clinically dead) to humiliate us at home.  The it sent the microbacteria that infested Hurney's brain that caused him  trade first rounders for the likes of Jeff Otah and Everette Brown.  Defensive tackles and Wide Receivers were considered non-essential personnel, especially when a young gunslinger from Notre Dame fell to us in the draft by the grace of God.  A year later the curse of the mug inspired Jerry Richardson to combine his 2 true loves, graphics and food, and he called a press conference to display his bestest pie chart because the refrigerator at home did not do it justice.  That led to a paranoid purging of talent where Richardson and Chicken Little prepared for the football apocalypse that never occured by crawling into his luxurious bomb shelter funded by the exposed and angry PSL owners.  Three years of famine were to follow, until a man named Gettlemen arrived preaching of hog mollies, touchdown scorers, and pass rushers.  Crazy talk, Marty said as he watched from his sofa eating a sandwich, preparing for a hibernation from which he would never again emerge.  With $16 million in debt, Gettlemen gets out his mirrors and smoke and fills positions with guys holding cardboard signs on the sidewalks of free agency.  Cam matures, Rivera grows a pair, and Zod finds his mug.  The stars are aligned people.  We are returning to the stage we left 10 years ago, but this time it will be in New York and not Houston.   The curse has been broken.

I'll settle for winning Sunday and taking it from there.

Also, I'll post up my Panther beer mug later in anticipation of the impending Lombardi.
