Feel free to post Hayden all you like. I doubt you find many that would complain.

#2577985 Keep Pounding Wristbands On The Team Shop Again...

Posted by OnlyPantherFaninMaine on 31 December 2013 - 03:32 PM

Ugh. They're sold out. Does anyone know where I can get one of these online? I live in Maine so unfortunately I am unable to go to a game to pick one up.


No way you're from Maine because I am the only Panther fan in Maine.

Whereabouts?


#2576371 Maine's First Trip to Charlotte (Pictures Included)

Posted by OnlyPantherFaninMaine on 30 December 2013 - 06:55 PM

First and foremost, I apologize for how late this thread is. I have been meaning to get around to it but between moving back home and the holidays I haven't gotten the chance until now. My 6 days in Charlotte, North Carolina were nothing short of amazing and were everything I hoped they would be. The people in Charlotte and surrounding areas were extremely pleasant and respectful...much more so than your average folks in New England where I grew up. The BBQ lived up to the hype and the city was a great place to hang out and explore.

 

On December 18th, I departed from San Diego en route to Charlotte. I had just finished my last final and finished graduate school so this would be the perfect mini-vacation prior to heading back home. The anticipation leading up to the game was at an all-time high now.

After a few hour flight, I got to Chicago where I had a couple hour layover prior to my flight to Charlotte.

Unfortunately it was dark by the time I arrived in Charlotte and I didn't have a window seat and I wasn't able to get a shot of Charlotte from the plane. Needless to say I had arrived. A friend I graduated from college with picked me up at the airport and we drove to his sister's apartment about 15-20 minutes from downtown Charlotte. The first night in Charlotte we had dinner at Mac's Speed Shop with his entire family and followed it up by going to his aunt's nightclub: Label. Benny Benassi was the special guest DJ for the night and we had free drinks coming non-stop. The picture below was taken from inside the DJ booth where we hung out most of the night.

After a fun night out, I woke up early Friday morning and drove to the stadium with my buddy. For $5 each we took a stadium tour of Bank of America which was one of the highlights of my trip. I was truly ecstatic walking into the gates for the first time after having been a fan since 95' and never seeing the stadium in person. We got the rundown about the stadium, the playing surface, and the locker rooms, etc. Our tour guide was top class and very knowledgeable.

I believe I took this from the media press box or one of the suits.

Never realized how massive these Panthers were in front of the stadium. Had to get a picture with one.

self-explanatory. Picked up these gloves at the team store. RIP to Sam Mills. Keep Pounding.

 

On Sunday my buddy and I got to dropped off at the stadium around 9:30am and promptly met up with bleys, another Huddler. We paid $10 at the doghouse for all you can drinks brews and got in a couple games of cornhole. Afterwards we decided to head towards another tailgating lot. On the way there, Cecil Newton and Cam's little brother walked right past us but I didn't stop and have and conversation with him. Once at the lot, we met up with Zcustom and his crew and got a little faded on the flipcup table while downing some beer and Fireball. Thanks Z! Just prior to kickoff my buddy and I headed towards the South Gate and entered the stadium ready for game day.

The crowd was electric and this was easily the best sporting event I have ever attended. The rain made it even more fun once I stopped caring that I was soaked. My nachos didn't last long in that monsoon but it was pretty cool that my beer refilled itself second by second.

Victory!

We stayed until the stadium basically cleared out so I could take it all in. 

 

After the game I shot RoaringRiot a text and met up with him and bleys again at Cans: Recycled. I seriously recommend this post-game party. There were thousands in attendance, great music, food, and beer was flowing like the tears of Saints fans in Charlotte that evening. Thanks Zack for the Fireball shot I didn't need! After spending a few hours there, I headed back to my friends sister's apartment to dry off for the evening. At night, I went back to Label on Sunday night where the club owner introduced her nephew and I to DeAngelo Williams, Jonathan Stewart, Armond Smith, and Byron Bell. They seemed to be enjoying themselves and I told DeAngelo that his run before the half was the momentum swinger and that I appreciated his efforts.  

 

That's all I really have for now. Overall I had a blast and cannot wait to get back to the Queen City. I was hoping to meet more of you during my stay there but I can promise you all that I will be back! I doubt I'll be able to get down to Charlotte for a playoff game but if we win the Superbowl I'm hoping to attend the parade in Charlotte!

Throw in a black helmet and a Superbowl win and I can die happy.

I honestly wouldn't be upset if we used every pick in the draft on receivers and offensive linemen.

A spiral honey-glazed ham with some garlic mashed potatoes, vegetables, stuffing and dinner rolls. My dad and I are celebrating both of our teams getting into the playoffs the same year for once.

#2552334 I Have Arrived in Charlotte

Posted by OnlyPantherFaninMaine on 19 December 2013 - 12:33 PM

Panther Nation,

 

OnlyPantherFaninMaine has touched down in Charlotte for the first time in his life and will be attending his first ever game in Bank of America stadium this Sunday. This is literally a dream come true for a lifelong Panther fan. 

 

Tomorrow afternoon I will be taking a stadium tour with a friend of mine. The first time I see or walk into the stadium will likely be emotional for me and one of the greatest feelings I've had in a long time. If any of you have the time tomorrow; feel free to join me as I take in the sites and sounds of the stadium for the first time.

 

Come Sunday I would love to tailgate with as many of you as possible. I want to experience an authentic North Carolina tailgate with all the food I hear so much about on this site but never have any idea as to what you're talking about. I can pitch in some cash if that would help out. I'll be attending the game with a buddy I graduated college with a couple years back and we want to go all out prior to the game with food and drink. Let me know if you have the room for a couple more this Sunday!

 

Anyways, tonight I'll be venturing downtown and likely going out somewhere. Feel free to post some places I should try to eat at while I'm here, some places to party, and just some things to do in general.

 

I hope to see you on Sunday. Let's get this win ladies and gentlemen. 

 

Keep Pounding!

 

 




#2548013 How many poos do you give about your job/school this week?

Posted by OnlyPantherFaninMaine on 16 December 2013 - 11:54 AM

1 paper is all that separates myself and a masters degree. I give 1 poo this week which by Wedesnday while on my way to Charlotte will be downgraded to 0 poos.

I will be there for my first game ever at BOA.


You can bet I'll be making noise.
