After being away for two years there were many things that I looked forward to returning to in the US context. Spending time with my dad was on the top of my list as he has always been one of my number one supporters and he is stocked full of wisdom that I could use. Since I was a child we have always attended ball games together. As a kid it was the Charlotte Hornets games and in recent years it has been the Carolina Panthers.
The above picture was taken at the recent win over the New Orleans Saints, which gave the Carolina Panthers the lead in the NFC South Division and put them into the playoffs for the first time since 2008. The below video, put together by the NFL and their respective owners, does a great job of capturing their season and what has led them to the playoffs. I am home this playoff season and so are the Panthers!
