American Football

Since they were founded in 1995, the Carolina Panthers have made only one trip to the Super Bowl, but what a trip it was! Super Bowl XXXVIII is considered by many to be the greatest Super Bowl game of all time.

Played in Houston, Texas, on 1 February 2004, it was both exciting and well played. The Carolina Panthers lost to the New England Patriots by a score of 29 to 32.

More memorable, however, is what happened during halftime.

Performing during the halftime show, songtress Janet Jackson suffered a “wardrobe malfunction”, which led to a broadcasting crackdown against indecency by the United States Federal Communications Commission.

If you want to root for the Carolina Panthers in North or South Carolina, chances are there is a sports bar that will make you feel welcome nearby.

If you live in other parts of the country, however, it might be a bit more difficult. This is not a team with a national following.

With one exception: one of the most enthusiastic Carolina Panthers sports bars in the country is located in the nation's capital!
