  1. Cost of Game Tickets

    The Panthers have a PSL Pre-sale for single game tickets today at 10:00 am so I was able to hook up my Panthers brethren PD & JJ with tickets for one game a piece for face value. I also get another opportunity to buy single game tix through BofA as the Panthers usually give Bank employees a Pre-sale on Friday before they go on sale for the public. Any team that has PSL rights would likely have the same type of situation, so even when they go on sale to the public, there is many seats already sold prior to the public tix are available. That is one of the reasons why many NFL tickets go to brokers so the people with the season tickets get a premium and then the stubhub.com gets its 15% from the pricing listed on their web site.
  2. The Nintendo Wii

    Congrats... I am contemplating getting one for my kids for Christmas. So I would be interested in your thoughts in a few weeks. Everyone is saying out fun this video game system is and since we don't have HD for the TV just yet, this definitely sounds like the best choice.
  3. stung by a wasp

    Go down to the local drug store and look on the shelf for insect sting products. Insect stings We had a little kit that was like a little plastic tubes that you break and the contents flow into a cotton tip to put onto the sting. It works well, but I didn't see it listed with the Walgreens products.

    Maybe I will get to a chance to experience EGG cooking!!! I have been intrigued ever since I posted on the Tailgate when I decided to buy a new grill (settled on a Weber) and you chimed in with your EGG.... I am sure it would be awesome.

    I just wish that your trip would not conflict with my family trip to the beach. I have a 6 year old son that would have a lot of fun getting to meet your sons (if we did something including the family) or at least had a chance to meet you (w/out the kiddos). But, alas, I can only provide information on my fair city to help you make the most out of your stay here for that week. Hope you had a chance to check out some of the links. If you have more specific questions about the area, restaurants, etc. I can help you out there too.

    If you want adventure Charlotte is home of the U.S National Whitewater Center It opened recently and is where the National Team trains. Whitewater Center Map. Here are some of the activities you can do there.... Activities It looks pretty cool, but I haven't had a chance to check it out myself yet. There is a nice area called Uwharrie National Forest that has areas for boating, hiking, fishing, etc. that is a little east of the area that I live in Concord in Troy, NC. Trail maps There is Carolina Adventure World where you can enjoy ATVs and motocross bikes and other trails. Here are a few other places to check out: http://www.lattaplantation.org/ Victory Lane Karting Lazy 5 Hope these give you a better idea of things to do while in the area. Dave

    I would love to meet up with you, but we are heading to North Myrtle Beach for most of that week. Swampnuts and I are in the area. He is in Indian Trail, which is very close to Waxhaw and I am north up in Concord (very close to Lowe's Motor Speedway). As far as what is around to check out. The first day that you are in town the Panthers have their "Fan Fest" at Bank of America Stadium. The Panthers have a scripted practice and a 20 minute scrimage. Before and after practice many players are available for autographs. They also do tours of the stadium during the week so you can check out the stadium if you want to. There is very good amusement park in town. Carowinds is a ton of fun has multiple coasters including the Borg (which has you riding like you are flying). They are running a buy one get an extra day promo right now, so it does cost, but you could go two days if you really enjoyed hanging out there. They have a great water park within the park so you could spend a day having fun in that and the other day at the regular park. NASCAR Speedpark is up towards where I live and also a fun time for the kids. You can check out five different go cart tracks, bumper boats, mini golf, rock wall climbing, laser tag and a bunch of video games. They have wrist bands if you want to spend a bunch of time there or pay as you go for the go carts, etc. It is located in a cool mall called Concord Mills and is like shoppetainment. It has a 24 AMC Stadium Theatre, a HUGH Bass Pro Shop so if you are into camping, fishing, hiking, boating, etc.... a definite to check out. The place has a big fish tank and about 5,000 fishing rods. Another thing to do at the mall is a cool place called Dave and Buster's, which is like a adult Chuck 'E Cheese. They have bowling, video games, pool, ping pong, shuffleboard and big screen TVs for watching games, etc. They have a great deal, Eat and Play Combo for $15.99 where you can pick from 8 entrees and get a $10 game card to have some great fun with the games. Downtown there is a neat kids museum called Discovery Place that as some neat things for kids. Currently, they have the Body Worlds exhibit there, which is pretty cool from what some friends have told me and they also have an IMAX Dome Theatre there too. If you want more information about Charlotte and other things, just shoot me a PM or give me a call. I would be happy to help you out.
  8. Best foreign rock band.

    Rolling Stones, U2, Genesis and Pink Floyd
  9. Greatest American Rock Band

    Yes. You are correct, sir! My bad...
  10. Greatest American Rock Band

    I love that skit... Just saw a SNL special going over some great moments over the years and they showed it and talked about making of that skit... At first Will Ferrell had a bigger shirt when he was playing the cowbell, but over practice he decided to put on a smaller shirt that made his part so funny. I also loved Christopher Walken's part... "I NEED MORE COWBELL" Priceless....
  11. Greatest American Rock Band

    My personal favorite band right now is Nickelback, but they haven't stood the test of time at this point, but their early stuff was very good and All the Right Reasons is just one of my favorites with great tracks from start to finish. Looking forward to seeing him in concert in about a month when they roll through Charlotte. For purposes of this poll... gotta say "The Eagles" is their music is still playing on the radio all these years later and multiple guys from the band went on to have great careers on their own.
  12. Grilling on a porch with a screen

    Definitely the smart thing to do.
  13. Grilling on a porch with a screen

    That is a very good point. I would probably just get the George Foreman and grill that way. Risking your entire property in the event of a fire is not worth it IMO. Any claims adjustor will look at the originating point of the fire and your grill would give you away and I have no doubt they would deny your claim. If you have a loan with you home the lender will be asking for your loan to be paid off by you and without the insurance company to back you up and pay for the damages you may really screw yourself.... If you really want to grill out can you roll it out into the yard?
