This past weekend I hosted 9 old friends, new friends, readers, and followers, as well as my sister for a weekend of fun and football. A few drove from across town to attend the game with me, while others traveled from Maryland, Georgia, and Alabama (and one who lives in Charlotte actually drove back home from New Jersey just in time for the game). By Sunday, everyone was ready to see the Carolina Panthers take on division rival New Orleans Saints. The game was fun and exciting and kept us on the edge of our seats, but luckily, my Saints pulled out the victory over the Panthers.
After the game we had a Meet & Greet with some of the Saints players before they boarded their buses. I was able to get pictures with Saints wide receiver Lance Moore and safety Roman Harper (Roman told me that he's glad I wore my colors and I told Roman "no more late hits").
We also met and/or saw rookie running back Mark Ingram, lineback Jonathan Vilma, safety Malcolm Jenkins, and many other Saints players. And I couldn't leave before catching a glimpse of quarterback Drew Brees.
I'm so glad that everyone had a great time! Several asked if I will be organizing another weekend like this one. Stay tuned!
