Went with my son to Spartanburg, SC for an early view of the Panthers. It was very hot for the morning practice, and we had a great lunch at the Beacon... for those who can appreciate that!

Julius Peppers looks like he wants out on the field!

Jake - elbow surgery. Seemed to be doing fine. This was a laugh, not a grimace of pain! lol.

a true fan waits for an autograph from Steve Smith, and others. Most of the Panthers and Coach Fox were great about coming by and giving the kids (and a lot of adults!) some time and a few autographs.

6 Jake DelHomme and Steve Smith weren't in the fan appreciation mood...

Had a great time, and ate too much at the Beacon!

looks like a lot of fun, boy that is one true Panther fan, that tat is pretty serious. Would just straighten your horizon in #2 & #4 -- and maybe crop them tighter...from the left to about 1/2 way to the right.

It was a lot of fun - will go back next year. Straightened and cropped - any improvement?

Thanks for the suggestions!

Bill

Hey Will, were these just from the fan section or did you get credentialed. I've contemplated driving down but didn't know if you could get decent access without credentials..

Thanks!

Hey Keith - I wish I could get credentials! lol. These were from the fan section - but access is excellent. You are basically right down on the practice field, many times no more than 30-40 feet away from the action. This was my first time there, but if you go to the morning session, I'd recommend getting there right at 9:00 and getting over to the far side of the field. That seems to be where most of the starters got time today, and there was a scrimmage there. It's also shaded early, so your comfortable, and sun is behind you. It was also the place to be because of the shade. Really close to the players.

Hope you get a chance to go...

Thanks Bill, I may try and get there later this week. Good points though. Thanks for the heads up. I'm looking forward to football this year...NFL, college, pop warner, you name it. Sorry I called you Will in my first post.

Nice shots, btw.

Thanks,

I would have killed to see this. Nice shots by the way!

My family is from Carolina (well, my dad's side). Almost two decades ago I went back with my dad, brother and grandfather to meet all of our family. The Panthers weren't even an official team yet, but NC and SC both has Panthers' gear all over everywhere... gas stations, quick stops, the mall.
