I've been watching the Panthers from Australia and now Singapore for the best part of 12 years now, but only since the advent of Gamepass over the past couple years have I been able to watch every game (I watched the odd primetime game that was shown on TV, playoffs and such - I remember having X-Clown on VCR and watching it over and over).
I've come to really love watching Carolina, probably not as much as I love my Aussie Rules football club, but enough that I get up at stupid o'clock every Monday and watch, and find myself getting really emotionally involved.
One thing I have never been, even before the Superbowl/playoff games (because I wasn't nearly as invested in the Panthers then), is *nervous*. And I am now. It's the biggest game I can remember and I can't wait. Roll on 5am!
