I was picking my uncle up from the airport in Raleigh today for a memorial service for my mom who recently passed away.
There is a back entrance to the airport that not many people know about or use except service people and UPS, etc.
I had forgotten that Obama was coming to town today, so when I pull onto this road there were about 50 police officers on bikes just sitting there. As I was pulling in I get a good look at the tarmac and there are at least a dozen black SUVs out there, and the usually empty observation deck has about 50 people crammed up there.
I pulled up to the old terminal to wait for my uncle and as I was sitting there I got a great view of Air Force One landing then turning around and going go where it was going to park.
Once my uncle finally showed up (of course he WS delayed because the entire airport is delayed when the President shows up) we exited the same way we came in and Air Force One was parked out that way. There was no one behind us so we got yo drive about 5 mph and check it out. It was pretty cool.
No matter how you feel about a sitting President I have a great deal of respect for the office of the presidency. And getting a chance to see Air Force One was pretty damn cool in my book.
Probably more exciting to me than you guys, but I just thought it was neat.
Nice fluff piece but I thought this was noteworthy.
Monday is the first day teams can begin to renegotiate or extend the rookie contract of a player drafted in 2011.... The Panthers likely are to begin those discussions after the season, according to a source.
There has been some discussion on here whether the Panthers should extend Cam this offseason or wait until possibly next offseason. Sounds like they are going to try and get this done sooner rather than later.. and IMO that is a good thing.
