6. Anything else you care to share?
I grew up in a house where you pulled for the 'Boys and the 'Phins or you got the backhand from dad. I was stationed in Japan when Carolina got its own team. I became an instant fan. My son and I used to get up at 1am on Monday morning in Japan to watch 12 noon Panther football back in the states. I PCSed/moved to Gerogia 2 years later, and I was able to take my son to his 1st NFL game when the Cats visited Atlanta. After the game I asked a security guard if there was a way for us to get to meet any of the players. He looked around and then told us to quickly take the elevator behind him down to the bottom floor. When we got out of the elevator, we stepped into a small crowd of people waiting right outside the locker room and beside the team's bus.
A young man began talking to us and asked my son who his favorite player was. Jay answered, 'Steve Beuerlein', the team's QB ATT. The guy said that was his favorite, too. He went on to introduce us to Pattrick Jeffers' grandparents, and other family and friends of the players. Jay asked the young man if there was a chance we would get to meet any of the players. The young man smiled and said he was pretty sure that might happen. As the players began to come out, the young man called out to Beuerlein, who came straight over. The young man was Steve Beuerlein's brother who had flown in with his wife to see the game. We met Steve Beuerlein, was introduced to a lot of players who were called over, and we walked out of there with a football signed by many of them. Talk about making a fan for life! My son, and I, were hooked!

4 Other teams in the NFL you root for? Cleveland Browns
5. Other sports you enjoy? Pretty much everything except Basketball. SEC fan (Gamecocks)
6. Anything else you care to share? Grew up in Cleveland watching Jim Brown as a kid. That was a magical time in my life as I watched the Browns win many championships but of course there was no Superbowl then, but it was great to be a kid in Cleveland watching the Browns. I moved to Charlotte in '71 and went to the bars that backed the Browns. When the Browns left Cleveland, the Panthers started up around the same time. I jumped on the bandwagon and have been a Panthers fan ever since and have went to a bunch of their games including their first in Clemson. Carolina is my favorite team now, but I will always be a Bronws fan as well. (still find myself barking at times)
