There's a local promotion company throwing a pep rally next weekend in Charlotte....for the Steelers.

How does that make you feel?

The Roaring Riot 2014 Tampa Takeover

09 September 2014 - 02:01 PM

Finally getting over my hangover from this past weekend and wanted to share some of the pictures from our Tampa Takeover. Some of you have seen some of these already, but for those of you who haven't here is the whole story.

I departed Charlotte on Thursday so I could get down there and make sure everything was set and ready to go for everyone for the weekend. I was really pumped to get down there and get the weekend going. That excitement almost came to a screeching halt when I thought I may be flying down on this POS.

Luckily that was NOT my plane and I didn't have to rent a car and drive instead. I was pretty much Panthers geared-out for the trip, which drew a lot of head nods and fist pumps at CLT. Other people were staring at me trying to figure out what my shirt meant. The TSA guy asked me if it was "some sort of loud outdoor event?". I responded, "yes".

The flight was good. Not too many Panthers fans on it though. Here's a shot of Tampa from the air.

The first thing I did when I landed was strolled over to Ray-J Stadium to say hello and let it know that we were here and ready.

Friday night we had a welcoming party our at our hotel, Shepard's, on Clearwater Beach. I know Zod bashed Clearwater and called it a redneck beach, but it was great for what we wanted. Maybe it's because I've been to Myrtle a bunch of times or maybe it's because I'm a hillbilly like all the Bucs fans said I was, but we loved it out there.

The game for the weekend quickly turned into "Can you find a Bucs fan?". It's unreal how few Bucs fans you find in Tampa. I know we have tons of fans of other teams in Charlotte, but even the people I encountered from Tampa didn't give a poo about the Bucs. It got to the point that I asked everyone I spoke to where they were from and if they said Tampa I would ask them if they were a Bucs fan. I got plenty of: Saints, Cowboys, Steelers, and Patriots....but not a single Bucs answer. And I'm not even exaggerating.

And then this gem while walking into the stadium

We had some serious problems with our bus on Sunday but we didn't let it stop us from throwing down before the game. FYI...tailgating on a beach blows tailgating in a parking lot away by a long shot. Especially when it's 100 damn degrees out there.

We made it to the game, 44 strong, and we dominated section 121 like we promised we would. Having the entire D acknowledge us was an amazing feeling. Having the entire section yelling at us int he first quarter and then doing their best to ignore us the rest of the game was also a thing of beauty.

We had a blast in Tampa. Thanks to the Huddlers that joined us: Rick (forget your Huddle name), bigcatdaddy (who is a good guy in person and when he's not talking UNC v Duke with me), usmcpanthers (this was his second run with us - glad he made it down), and Zod for swinging by the tailgate party to say hello. Chad I think is on the Huddle, too, but he doesn't post much.

The overwhelming vote is for Nashville in 2015...so everyone go ahead and get ready NOW!

Season Opener Pep Rally

01 September 2014 - 04:39 PM

I've teamed up with the Panthers and the Epicentre again to kick-off the home season opener a with a little bang. On Sept 11th we're throwing a pep rally to start the weekend's festivities up right. We had an awesome showing for the playoff game last year so hopefully it be another fun time....and maybe we can get Boo to pop some bottles in VIP at Bubble again. 

 

The Topcats will be coming through and taking pictures with everyone (that probably sold many of you) and the Panthers Purrcussion will be rolling all over the Epicentre. Ticket purchase includes a Panthers T-shirt and a few opportunities to win tickets to the Lions game in the Miller Lite Suite. We're giving away 10 tickets again (5 pairs)

 

Here's a link to the ticket site with more details http://www.eventbrit...ets-12584744309

Falcons - Week 17

15 August 2014 - 07:48 AM

We're filling up two buses (overnight and day trip) for the week 17 game against the Falcons to takeover the Dome and watch the Panthers win the Division again if anyone wants in. Had several Huddlers join us last year - it was good fun (it always is). I'm shooting for 100 Panthers fans sitting together at the game this season. Let's make it happen...

 

Big thanks to my man MeowMeowMeooow for putting together a cool ATL trip flyer for me. He does good work.. 

 

Edit: We'll obviously be teaming up with the Panthers GROWL Club this year since they're now going to be dominating Panthers games at their host bar.

NFL Pool

14 August 2014 - 06:02 AM

I wanted to invite you to a football pool I participate in. If you're interested in joining PM me your email addy and I'll have the organizer get in touch with you. Here's how it works:

*Each week you select who you think will win each game. Not based on spread, just a winner.
*You assign a point value to each game based on how confident you are in that game. So for scalp if there were 16 games that week you would assign 16 points to your most confident game and 1 to your least confident game
*weekly winners get a prize. I think it was $80 last year.
*overall top 4 or 5 get prizes. Last year first place got around $3k
*$85 to join the pool
