Super Bowl Bittersweet For Panthers Fans

Posted: Updated:
As the football season comes to an end, NFL teams will get a chance to hit the reset button and do it all over again next season.

Fans in the Carolinas are still holding on to what became one of the most memorable seasons in franchise history. South Mint street was filled with Panthers pride just a few weeks ago. The celebration, tailgating, and excitement electrified the city.

“It would take so much longer to get to places that would normally take 15 minutes," Daciay Quenah said.You just have to find the good routes to go."


Many of the fans I spoke with said they could care less who wins the Superbowl, because their team won in many other ways this season.

“It wasn’t heartbreaking to go that far. It’s been heartbreaking here before [with] one of fifteen, two and fourteen,” Dan Fleming said.

He says he’d rather root for overtime and pick a team to win, because that’s how much he loves watching the game of football. Maybe next year his team will be there and Panthers pride will fill the Carolinas.

    Report: health risks at some nail salons

    One of the most surprising findings in a report from the New York City public advocate is that city officials have virtually no authority over how nail salons are run. The city can't enforce standards like they do with restaurants, so it's clearly a case of beauty buyer beware. We get our nails done without thinking too much about it.
