I've always did my best to indoctrinate my son with my sports loves. He had panthers jerseys, pj's, tshirts, bibs, pacifiers, bottles, onsies, anything with a panthers logo, I would buy it. But he never could sit through a game with me at home. The first game we went to, he was 6 and we left at halftime because he was bored, and we were getting our butts handed to us. On Monday Night, things changed. With 2 minutes to go, I looked over and saw him with his arms tucked in his coat complaining about the cold. When Cam threw that TD to Ginn I looked over at him, he had taken his coat off to let his #89 black jersey show with pride, while jumping around like a wild man...The proudest moment as a dad so far! Screw the A honor roll, my son just fell in love with MY football team! I know this isn't breaking panthers news, but I wanted to tell this story, I'm so proud......

I used to drag my dad to Hornets games. He just didn't appreciate sports the way I do. Enjoy that, I envy you a little.

It is up to us to create the next wave of Panther fans.  My daughters are true Panther fans as well.  I started taking them to games in 2006 and we try to go every year (not this year sadly)  They love going and have a great time.  

 

It is awesome that he has caught the fever.

 

Go Panthers
