When Did You Become A Panthers Fan?

My dad took me to my first hockey game...It was in 93 in the good old Miami Arena against the Ducks! I was so excited because the Mighty Ducks had become one of my favorite movies! From that game on, I was hooked on the Panthers!

What Turned You On To Becoming A Panther Fan?
I grew up here in South Florida, why not root for the home team.

Who Is Your Favorite Panther Player All-Time?
Rob Niedermayer..still wear my jersey sometimes. Many people make fun of me but he was the reason I have followed the Cats for so long!

Stephen Weiss. He has shown such dedication and heart wanting to stick with this through all the adversity. I hope this year he leads us into the playoffs!

What Is Your Favorite Thing About Attending A Panther Game?
The excitement and fun I have with my friends every single game. It never seems to get old!

What Is Your Favorite Panthers Memory?
Obviously game 4 of the Stanley Cup finals. Even with us losing, there was such a high! Everytime I see clips from that time, it brings tears to my eyes. I can't wait to experience that again!

What Makes You A True Panther Fan?
I go to every game, watch every game on tv on the road, make some road trips, and am constantly looking up the Florida Panthers on every site I can.
