At 3:30 p.m. there are more Miami jerseys than Carolina jerseys on the streets and in the parking lots outside Bank of America Stadium. If there's a message, it's that fans of the Dolphins do not have jobs.
It's this way on Sundays, too. If the visiting team has any kind of following in Charlotte, there are always more fans wearing their jerseys than the jerseys of the Panthers. By kickoff, the Carolina fans usually catch up.
Great afternoon to be out. The sun finally is shining. People are trying to escape downtown early and get to the stadium early. So far, there's no problem getting in, especially if you're wearing a Miami jersey.
