I know that postgame discussion in the game threads have gone the way of the dodo since the gamechat has emerged (and that's fine) but just have to give a late shout-out to the folks in attendance last night. It wasn't packed by any means, but for a team winless at home taking on a ho-hum opponent on a Monday night, I was really impressed with the noise and excitement. I was moved from my 215 seats to center court 8th or so row back to start the 2nd half, and it's the first time I've been down there that everyone was standing, yes STANDING for the entirety of the comeback!!! Not only that, they were hooting and hollering, yelling profanity (as was I on the phantom 6th foul on GW), stomping, jumping up and down; it was just insane; and I was more bewildered by the Bobcats fan fervor than the fact our guys came back and won. I left the TWC more in awe of our crowd than the comeback of the fellas.
In closing, a massive tip o' the cap to everyone in attendance; you guys never lost faith, and damned if I'm starting to think the Cats have finally been embraced by the city....finally.
"The Charlotte Hornets name has been a mainstay throughout the region for many years, and we are excited to announce our intention to re-establish this historic brand. We believe that its return will galvanize our fan base by unifying our loyal Bobcats fans with those who have strong memories of our city's NBA predecessor." MJ, 5-21-13
