When I think of Jake Delhomme, I think of the most fun I’ve ever had being a Panthers fan. I think of Steve Smith torching the St. Louis rams for a game winning slant route in overtime. I think of how it felt in Wilmington, where I was living at the time, to experience people in the city draped in black and blue whenever I left the house.
The magic of sports is why we watch and continue to spend hour after hour every weekend with our eyes glued to our TV’s. That feeling is elusive, very elusive if you’re a Panthers fan.
