The press box at Bank of America Stadium features cuisine from the city whose team is playing Carolina. When New Orleans came to town, the Panthers featured bread pudding and jambalaya. With Arizona in town today, the Panthers featured fajitas and guacamole. Carolina’s next home game is against Detroit, a good, solid, interesting, working class burg. What are the Panthers going to do, feature domestic beer and with a shot on the side? If so, I don’t anticipate a lot of complaints.
There was more traffic en route to the stadium Sunday than for any game this season, and more traffic downtown, also. Chicago, back on Sept. 14, also attracted a huge, early-arriving crowd. The difference is that the Chicago crowd featured a lot of Chicago jerseys. Based on what I saw, I don’t know if Arizona sells jerseys.
