A couple of weeks ago, my kids were invited to a friend’s birthday party at the Panthers Stadium in Charlotte. It was so intriguing to me, that I skipped my Wednesday night class to join in on the fun!
We met at an outdoor area within the stadium where Sir Purr, the Panther’s mascot, made his grand entrance on a 4 wheeler, and the kids all went nuts! Sir Purr posed for pictures with each child and the kids took turns catching a football he threw to them. After some fun and dress up in Panther’s gear, we were led on a tour by our guide. We walked out into the stands to see the field and the beautiful skyline of Charlotte. Then we toured the visiting team locker rooms and learned that the teams all request certain items to stock their locker rooms (among them, Gatorade, gum, and a certain number of towels). We also visited a luxury suite (which is where I would personally like to watch the game from!), and the media rooms where the stats are taken and television commentators sit. One interesting fact I learned is that the Carolina Panthers logo of the Panther head is the states of NC and SC upside down!
It was a fun party for a football-loving boy and his friends! He (and my kids) will remember this party forever!
