A new Panthers Fan!
Posted 20 November 2013 - 12:51 AM
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......
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.

Ah poo man those feelz.
I just had an awesome time with my dad, who is the reason I am a panthers fan today.
After not having seen my father in a few years, I went to visit him for his birthday and watch pats vs car game.
I cannot remember a better time that I have had watching a panthers game. It was over the top, I can't believe how great this game is kind of enjoyable. From Cam's first throw to Steve, all the way down to the "controversial call".
Carolina Panthers gave my dad, what was undoubtedly the greatest birthday present ever.
And made all the patriots fans in the world extremely butthurt.

Over the last 2 seasons, I've been pushing it on her and this season she's been wearing my Mike Minter jersey and Monday she said..."Where's my Panthers jersey!?" And threw it on and was into the game yelling and screaming ...almost brought a tear to my eye...

Love it, we need to be developing that next generation and establishing what the Steelers fanbase has, generations upon generations of fans.
My children will come out of the womb decked out in Panther gear, no doubt about it!
