Happy Thanksgiving!

We here at the ASD want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving (we're under order not to call it Turkey Day, because that's like calling Christmas, Presents Day).

A quick tip of the cap to both of Charlotte's professional teams. On Tuesday, many of the Carolina Panthers rookies and cheerleaders visited Uptown Shelter to serve a Thanksgiving lunch for some of the city's homeless. The Panthers website has the story as well as a video and HERE's some coverage from the perspective of the shelter.

Before departing on their current road trip the Bobcats and Jillian's hosted a Hoops and Hopes Dinner in conjuction with A Child's Place. The event featured all of the players and Lady Cats serving dinner to underprivileged families. After the dinner, the players took the time to play games with the kids as well as sign autographs. A video and a photo gallery of the event can be found on the Bobcats homepage.

Great job by both teams. Happy Thanksgiving and enjoy the leftovers.
