Advanced Planning

As you know, I am just a little north of a casual fan of the National Football League, and a diehard fan of the Carolina Panthers.

So it came as no surprise when I got a call today from a like minded Carolina fan stating his concerns for the second home game of the season. You see, it is a prime time Thursday Night game, with all the pageantry of a Sunday night game….just short of a Monday night game.

We are giddy here in Charlotte about our return to prime time football. Once we get the President of The United States out of here this September….it is game time. Our house.

The problem is, the game starts at 8 PM, and our tailgating area is in a regular daily parking lot of the stiffs that work in downtown Charlotte. You can easily see that three hours to tailgate is a real problem worthy of a call two and a half months in advance. We take this shit seriously.

The conclusion is that we need to be in place Wednesday night to secure parking and a leisurely tailgate.

Please mark your calendar.
