Dex's Trip To The Queen City


Best Answer Chaos, 19 November 2013 - 10:34 PM

Glad you enjoyed Charlotte, it's a great city.  Also, you should be ecstatic that you witnessed one of the most monumental home games in Panthers history, excluding playoffs of course.

A WHOLE PIE!

What's up motherfugers. This is going to be boring but I don't give a fug I had a great time.

 

Friday November 15th

 

Feeling like a fuging sack of poo. Long ass week that seemed to be dragging because of the game. I'm tired as fug but I'm like fug it I wanna go for a run. Get about 5 yards down the street and sprain my fuging ankle.

Doctor's is too expensive and ain't no buddy got time for the fuging poo. Only won thing was on my mind... Getting on that plane Sunday morning and there was no fuging whey it wasn't happening... Oh and calling out of work Saturday and watching Dexter.

 

Saturday November 16th

Mission Accomplished.

Sunday November 17th

 

Didn't sleep last night. Dozed on and off between 11 and 430 am. Stay in bed refreshing the Huddle every one or two minutes hoping for a new thread. I see SuperJ's name and throw my phone across the room.  6 am I get out of bed and head down to D&D to get a cream cheese bagel.

 

Spoiler

 

Moving on. I'm all fuging packed and ready to go. I'm leaving on a fuging jet plane and I'll be back again on fuging Tuesday. We get to the airport at about 11am and decide to get some food cause the flight isn't for another couple hours. Oh and by we I mean my fuging Patriot's fan girlfriend.

I go the bathroom to take a leak. A security guard disreguards the 1-3-5 rule and decides to take #4. This concerns me but I squeeze the fuging lemon and come out to find my girlfriend changed the background on my phone to a stupid fuging selfie and took off my Greg Olsen lucky wallpaper.

This angers me. I tell her she has jinxed my team and doomed them to irrelevance for eternity. She reminds me Jimmy Clausen had his mom invest in a energy drink pyramid scheme and he shamelessly promotes it on his twitter. I said "that's good but not enough." She reminds me of her fellatio skills. I pick up our bags and start moving to the terminal after I change Greg back.

 

Airports are fuging miserable but I stand in line waiting for the time to come. They check my fuging bag even though it meets requirements. fug you LGA.

Wheels up Charlotte here I come.

 

We get to cruising altitude and it's pretty fuging sweet once we get above the clouds. 

 

15883uw.jpg

 

The fuging flight attendant comes around asking me if I want a fuging juice like I'm a little kid. The conversation went along the lines of something like this.

 

Flo - "Would you like a beverage sir? We have water, soda, juice -"

 

Dex - "Do you have alcohol?"

 

Flo - "Yes sir we have-"

 

Dex - "I'll take whatever's strongest and a cup with ice."

That's moar like it. But wait, what is that off in the distance?

 

2iu9dg6.jpg

 

Charlotte....? Is that you?

 

207t1sg.jpg

 

Cue Starship.

 

 

So anyway Douglas is a fuging shitshow with 8 flights arriving and only one baggage claim section working but we find our poo and hail a fuging cab. 

 

2a7tlko.jpg

 

Our cabbie was a nice guy and told us a lot about the city. But fug that poo you wanna get to the game right? Well it's going to be a while. We arrive at the Upton Sheraton formerly the Blake Hotel and settle in with an afternoon fug and a $5 water from the hallway vending machine.

 

148ni9g.jpg

 

Usual poo but not a bad room at all.

 

akziw1.jpg

 

So anyway we freshen up and head over to the Epicenter and Wild Wing Cafe to catch the rest of the 4:00 games. Service and food was great but the atmosphere could use a chainsaw. Bahston fahcking accidents everywhere. fug you Pat's fans.

Wings

Buffalo Chicken Dip & Chips

Cheesy Jalapeno Bacon Fries

Beer

 

Anyway moleface wins so I get mad and we decide to go on a walk around Charlotte in the rain to see some poo.

Pretty sweet.

This fuging thing! Anyway I get tired and pass out halfway through SNF. The day I've been waiting for has arrived...

 

Monday November 18th

 

23igdpe.jpg

 

I woke up at the exact time the sun fuging broke across the horizon. I knew today was going to be the fuging day. So my girlfriend and I decide I need an undershirt for my jersey because it might get a little chilly later. I call her a weak woman but agree so we go to Target and get me an undershirt while grabbing some breakfast at Starbucks. Also fun little fact. I was amazed at this.

 

2a51k3.jpg

 

In Connecticut only package stores and groceries can sell alcohol but it was everywhere I turned down here. It also just became available for purchase on Sundays a few months ago. (Thank God)

 

So anyway we do the 3 S's and head over to BoA early to go to the Team Store and see the sights before the game. Also weather earlier in the week called for a shitty fuging day. But it was absolutely gorgeous all day!

 

We walk for about 20 minutes and then I see it in all of it's fuging glory.

 

2zi0d8w.jpg

 

I almost teared up(comes later) seeing her. We walked along the "Observer Wall" which was pretty cool then make our way down to the stadium.

 

10ic4s8.jpg

 

The place is absolutely fuging beautiful. The cats were sweet and made my girlfriend's legs quiver. Actually they may have made mine quiver but whatever moving on to quite possibly my favorite part of the trip.

 

I may come off as a dick in this but Sam Mills is my favorite Panther of all time and when I saw him and touched his statue it damn near truly brought me to tears. I'm a film major and a script I'm writing is inspired by his story and will be dedicated to him and his honor. My grandmother has been fighting breast cancer for the last 3 years and has taken everything that it's thrown at her and said "fug you, you're not keeping me down". The "Keep Pounding" slogan may mean a lot to us as Panther fans but it carries a greater meaning that can be shared by anyone that's ever been affected by cancer or even any hardship in their life. Love and miss you Sammy. RIP.

Now onto the Team Store! I was one of the first in line!

 

2lwuhjr.jpg

 

Didn't spend a whole lot.

 

- 8 Keep Pounding Bracelets

- Keychain for mom

- Gameday Pin

- Growl Towl

- Sideline Winter Hat

 

2qi0bk5.jpg

 

All in all it was great seeing the stuff I wanted to see at the stadium while I was sober. Saw a few more sights and then headed back up the hotel to get ready, geared up and head out to meet a couple fellow Huddlers at a tailgate.

 

m9ruxl.jpg

 

Carp24000 PM'd earlier in the week and told me to stop by the tailgate he goes to. He said $10 all you can drink and eat. Really starting to fall in love with this city. So my girlfriend and I start making our way across the city Kuechly/Edelmen jersies side by side. Got some strange looks but whatever. So we get to the tailgate behind The Doghouse right next to the stadium.

 

https://www.facebook...bsradiodoghouse

 

It was an awesome fuging tailgate. Hung out  with Carp and his buddy for about and hour or so drinking beer, taking hots, eating and playing cornhole. Then that's when the second Huddler arrived. Your Girlfriend's Favorite Huddler. The "Tucker Max" of the Huddle who's girlfriend is also coincidentally a Pat's fan but he left her home like a bawss. So we all hungout for a couple more hours and got shithoused then proceeded to make our way into the stadium around 7pm.

 

Also I just want to say Carp and YGFH are two of the coolest and nicest guys I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. Hope to see you guys next time I come down!

 

Here it is. Finally for the first time ever I see the field. My fuging sanctuary. Words couldn't describe my emotions.

 

bjj3uf.jpg

 

Anyway met our seatmates both Panther's couples (who were both awesome all game making noise and standing up) then proceeding to hike back down the mountain for beer and Bojangles before the Veteran's ceremony began.

 

By the way BoA was LOUD basically all game and really filled up halfway through the ceremony. 

 

2eoh85x.jpg

 

Last minute fans scurrying to get in.

 

Very classy ceremony by the way with the building lit up with the American Flag and the field as well.

 

54fybt.jpg

 

Alright now I'm not going to commentate the game. I didn't take any pictures (superstition) so will just fast forward to the end.

 

.........

 

As soon as we saw Mitchell running around we knew we won and BoA fuging ERUPTED. It was incredible, I burst out crying into my girlfriend's arms and people immediately took out their cameras and took pictures of me and her kissing and hugging. Man card revoked and I don't care.I really wouldn't have changed a thing about my first trip to BoA. Fans were great to my girlfriend, Huddlers I met were awesome, I got to see the city and our Panthers won. I look up into the stars because I was fuging drunk and couldn't find the building with the V on it and wept some more. Hadn't had this feeling since 08 and if you never had it then I can't explain it to you.

 

2qbukk8.jpg

 

Dude above almost ruined the picture fug him! But anyway we stayed for a while they started to make our way down. Here's my drunk ass trying to start a "let's go Panthers" on the ramps.

 

 

Tuesday November 19th

 

So that was my trip and it really was something special. To the victors go the spoils.

(Giselle was in the bathroom.)

So wheels up Huddle it's back to Connecticut to rub the win in all my Patriot fan friend's faces. Thanks for the time of my life and lets keep this streak going.

That is some awesome poo right there.

 

Just for the record, I went to UCONN for Grad. If she tries to jinx the Panthers again... Stick it in her pooper.
