Steady rain coming down at Bank of America Stadium where the Falcons and Panthers are scoreless after 1Q.
I’m terrible at judging crowd numbers, all I can say is: not a lot. pic.twitter.com/e9HnPZs8fO

In the next few days, I’ll have the chance to fly to Florida.
I’m off to spend some time with my father, who has his butt settled where it’s warm in winter.
I’ve been making my annual holiday trip for several years now. And as usual, a couple of sporting activities will be on the agenda during my stay with our neighbors to the south.
We’re talking about a reasonable price, but that’s nothing compared to the ticket prices we saw for yesterday’s game between the Atlanta Falcons and the Carolina Panthers.
It’s worth noting that the weather wasn’t right because it was raining and cold, but still.
The Panthers have been awful this season and had won just one of their 13 games prior to yesterday’s game.
I don’t know who had the mandate to count the number of fans in the stadium, but I think he did his job a little wrong. Hehe.
On a more serious note, I think it’s sad because it sends a clear message to the organization and the players.
We’re a long way from the days of Cam Newton, let’s put it that way…
At least the fans on hand were able to celebrate the Panthers’ 2nd win of the season, 9-7!
– Makes sense.

– He’s on fire.
Gabriel Vilardi has four goals and three assists in his last four games and is hitting his stride. He’s played eight games since returning from his knee injury and says his timing and ability to slow down the game are returning.@JohnLuTSNWpg has more: https://t.co/T8ZLyyIoYq pic.twitter.com/ph9j5FSCgq
