Panthers Game

At the start of the year I created a 30 Before 30 List of tasks I wanted to complete before I turned 30. One of the items on the list was to attend a professional sporting event. You'd think this would be something we do regularly with two professional teams in town, but it's hard to justify when the teams don't have much to write home about. Just being honest here! Well, last Saturday evening our friend, Scott, called David and offered us two extra tickets to Panthers game against the Broncos. It was made even better when we confirmed our friends from Raleigh, Steve and Caroline, would be coming into town for the game.

Sunday morning we made our way downtown for a few hours of tailgating in the gorgeous North Carolina Fall weather. We munched on some Bojangles (a North Carolina MUST) and played cornhole while we readied ourselves for the game. It was great to catch up with Scott and Tiffany (and Scott's sweet mama who joined us as well!) and Steve and Caroline before the game.

A little before kick-off we headed down to Scott's awesome seats behind the Panthers' end zone. We had an incredible view of the field and game. The only thing that could have made the game better is if Cam Newton had decided not to be a big baby and actually play the game. The good news? We got to see Peyton Manning play!

Despite the pitiful loss it was an awesome game and we are grateful for such great times with great friends:-)
