Anywho, being from Charlotte and being a Panther fan, I am absolutely pulling for the Panthers. You should too. Here's why...
1. They have been underdogs and faced adversity all season.
No team seems to have been underestimated and under appreciated all season than the Panthers. They are rarely picked to win and when they do win it's because the other team had injuries or bad tablets or bad coaching. Because of this, they play with a chip on their shoulders. Last year the head coach's house caught on fire and burned, our starting quarterback broke his back in a car accident and their number 1 wide receiver was injured in a pre-season practice that sidelined him for the entire season. I mean, c'mon!
2. They have never won a Super Bowl.
Peyton Manning (Denver QB) has already won a Super Bowl and the Broncos as a franchise have won 2 Super Bowls. The Panthers made 1 appearance in their 20 years of existence and lost.
3. They are an incredibly exciting and fun team to watch.
From touchdown celebrations, to overall game excitement, the Panthers are fun to watch and they have fun playing the game!
4. Because this.
The QB Cam Newton hands touchdown balls to kids in the stands EVERY. TIME. He even will go as far as to run and track down the ball to give it to a kid. Even when other team's players are jerks about it.
5. Because Blue and Black are prettier than Blue and Orange.
My last reason may be selfish but the Panthers colors are WAY better. And everyone looks good in black. #amiright
So, if you're looking for a team to root for on Sunday, how about you throw some good vibes towards the Panthers?!
