I'm a Panther Fan true and blue but your job should come first; there are way too many people out of work to take a job lightly and without my job, I would never be able to attend every Panther home game. Do what you can to make the game but don't leave your boss hanging. That's the logical choice because right now I'm sober but tonight when I'm watching the SC/Clemson game with about 10 beers in me I'll say 'fug the job and get your azz to Charlotte.....Go Panthers!!!!!'
That's cool that you mentioned the 'measuring stick'. That's the same thing I was telling all of my Panther hateing buds at work last week....'The 9'ers will be a measuring stick as far as where we are at'......those sons of bitches still won't aknowledge that game .......lol. I even passsed a house today on the way to the gym that I've been passing by for the last 8 years and have never seen anything remotely sports related in their front yard; today they had a Carolina Panther flag flying on their front porch.
