This is the time of year where fans from all over the Carolinas get a chance to meet players up-close prior to the start of training camp. Greensboro, NC will host the kickoff to the Panthers Road Show on Friday night and four of the team's biggest stars will be in attendance.
Linebackers Luke Kuechly and Thomas Davis will be joined by two offensive players, Jonathan Stewart and Mike Tolbert -- all of whom will be in Center City Park from 5:30-7:30 p.m. tonight. For fans in the Triad it's a chance to meet the players up close and maybe talk to them a little before they set off for the heat of Spartanburg.
On a personal note, I plan to be there. As a Greensboro resident it's foolish for me not to. Also I'm assuming the Australia vs. Chile World Cup game will be going badly enough that I'll need something to cheer me up.
The Road Show will keep traveling before finishing in Columbia, SC in two weeks time. Stay turned to Panthers.com for more information.
