Hello fellow Panthers fanatics,
I am new here and I would like to take some time to introduce myself to you all. My name is Jan, at this moment I am 26 years old and I live in Belgium. I will be blogging here as CARD1AC_CAT, which is also my Twitter name. I serve in the military, as does my fiancee, who happens to be a lifelong Ravens fan.
On the sports part then, more specific NFL, that is a bit of a strange story. It's been 6 years now that I actively follow the NFL, or at least as much as I can, because it is not easy to do that in Belgium. Anyway, I started off as a Panthers fan, but as it goes with people, in life interests change and since I am not bound by a city or so, I kind of jumped ship to the Bengals. That didn't take too long however and after the 2010 NFL Draft, I started to have a more than average interest for the St. Louis Rams. This all because they took First overall my favorite College player at the time, QB Sam Bradford. My interest in the Rams stayed until the end of last year. Then I had these last few weeks looking at the Bears and the Falcons (shame, I know). But all this time, there was this one team that I still had a more than average interest and warm feeling. And that team is of course the Panthers.
Now I hear you think, what a weird path and how can you say it will stay that way? Well, all that time that I had been following other teams, the Panthers always had me in their grip. My first jersey was a black #17 Delhomme, I still have it proudly hanging against my wall. I never take things the easy way, but my passion for the Panthers is real, I want to be part of this community, I feel that click with this team, it suits me best.
My expectations here on this blog are pretty high, I want to have interesting discussions, learn more about the Panthers still, find things I cannot find anywhere else and I hope to meet a lot of nice people that feel equally as passionate about this amazing organisation and share the belief that that first Ring is very close now.
Should you have any questions, please let me know.
