#3324769 Cigar City Brewing

Posted by RoaringRiot on 17 April 2015 - 12:03 PM

Jai Lai is legit. 

 

I went to Cigar City (close to the airport) when I was in Tampa for the game last year. They've got some other good ones. Wish we could get them distributed in NC.

#3323806 JAX Trip Details

Yeah...true story.

 

"We even told Mark Lamping, our team president, that he couldn't reserve a spa cabana for that game (which he tried to do)."

Just called me yesterday to tell me they heard the schedule is coming out on Tuesday. I still think it's coming out on Thursday. 

 

They also told me that their team President tried to reserve a cabana for the Panthers game and they told him no. That's what's up.

People who complain about silly/fun social media contests that support the Panthers are more ridiculous than silly/fun contests.


#3322131 Anyone live in Atlanta?

Posted by RoaringRiot on 15 April 2015 - 05:44 AM

I have been here for 3 years and I am in early 30's...
PROS
-Atlanta is an amazing job market...much more opportunity than Charlotte. (I lived in Charlotte for 3 years as a young professional).
-Real estate is relatively cheap depending on the area you live.
-There is tons of stuff to do here. Virtually every weekend there is a festivals (420 Festival next weekend), you get all the major concerts (the Rolling Stones are coming in June), you also have tons of museums, parks, tourist attractions like the aquarium, world of Coke, etc.
-There are a ton of young professionals in all parts of the city. In Charlotte there was a lot of young professionals, but you only really found them uptown. In the Suburbs of ATL, there are tons of groups close to where you live/can afford.
-There are a lot of hot girls here....virtually all of people who graduate UGA end up here afterwords....but the girls are no doubt hot and plentiful.
-the airport is the best airport in the country...tons of direct flights, for cheap.
-Depending on the area, it's a great place to raise a family...good schools, low crime (again dependent of the area).
-MARTA is decent for public transportation...
-you get to see the Panthers live once a year....also BOA stadium is a 3 hr drive away, which isn't a big deal.

CONS
-yes the traffic does suck....if you hit it at the wrong time of day. However I have lived in many other cities (including Charlotte, and traffic sucks everywhere during rush hour).
-there are plenty of Falcon fans yes...just like there would be plenty of Colts fans in Indy, Redskins fans in DC, Bears fans in Chicago, Bucs fans in Tam...never mind. Point is it's ok to be a Panthers fan in the enemy's territory....I have met plenty of Panther fans here as well.
-Atlanta gets a bad wrap for what goes on in certain parts of the city (see College Park, Clayton county, etc). The city I live in, Johns Creek actually has the least amount of crime in the state and some of the best schools. Also virtually every place I want to shop is close by.

I am sure there are plenty of people who will chime in on this board telling you traffic sucks, this place is infested, etc....they are the people who tried to drive through the city one day to go to the airport and got stuck in traffic or a bad neighborhood. Point is, I wasn't too thrilled about moving here, but after three years, I have come to call it home and actually enjoy living here. I hope this helps.



This is a pretty good and honest summary IMO

I'm pretty sure most see these as fun and don't take them seriously. Those being negative about it need to lighten up.

#3320731 Guess the Panthers' Schedule Contest

Posted by RoaringRiot on 13 April 2015 - 08:10 PM

Wait a second...I didn't see anywhere on mobile where you could pick home or away. It was pick 16 teams in order. That's it. No bye. No venue. Did I miss something?

 

 

No just order. He's saying that he didn't consider home and away when making his selections so he could have picked several in a row that wouldn't be possible....like 6 road games. 




#3320626 Guess the Panthers' Schedule Contest

Posted by RoaringRiot on 13 April 2015 - 05:44 PM

some worth a poo at math calculate the odds of guessing each one at random (with two games for each NFCS foe) and getting it right

 

jase?

 

 

This is from my brother in law who is getting his PhD in Math right now. I told him that we will play a Divisional opponent in the last game. 

 

"This is actually a great question for the Math 150 students.  I might  suggest this to the course coordinator  

So the last game is 3 choose 1 (3 choices, one spot), or 3

The rest of the season is a permutation of 15 teams (10 teams, 3 teams repeated once, minus the team that plays last :  10 + 6 -1 = 15)

So the number of possible team orderings is 3*15! (15! being 15 factorial) or 3 trillion 923 billion 23 million 104 thousand"

 

Sooo......at least my contest is fun, right?

#3319716 Panthers throughout the years.

Posted by RoaringRiot on 12 April 2015 - 04:43 PM

Shula would make an offense with Calvin Johnson, Aj Green and Demarious Thomas paired with dual TE sets of Graham and Gronk rank 20th or worse.

 

 

But he was able to have a 16th ranked offense last year? Strange....




#3319672 Guess the Panthers' Schedule Contest

Posted by RoaringRiot on 12 April 2015 - 03:42 PM

I'm obviously counting down the days until the NFL announces the schedule so I can plan out the rest of my year. I'm sure many of you are too. I decided to have a little fun with it and create a contest to see if anyone can guess the exact order of our opponents for this upcoming season. If you enter and get it right I'll give you your choice of away game trip package (Nashville, Atlanta, or Jacksonville) for two for free. If no one gets it exactly right then I am going to see who got the most right and give them $75 off one of the away game trips. 

 

Here's a link to the contest if you want to play: http://bit.ly/ScheduleContest
