MNF In the CLT

Posted by Jarvis Holliday On 12/08/2008 No comments
Charlotte is getting ready for the Monday Night Football match-up tonight between the Carolina Panthers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. MNF is one indicator that this sport is more than a game and it's the one game of the week when you know the whole country is watching your team.

The city is embracing the national spotlight. The Bank of America Corporate Center and the Carillon Building will turn on their Panther blue lights to illuminate their rooftops. Several other uptown buildings will turn on their lights and open their window shades to light up the skyline tonight. The Charlotte Shout Band will lead a pep rally of sorts at the Square, starting at 5 p.m. Then the celebration will head to the stadium where there will surely be thousands of tailgaters. This blistering cold won't deter the Panther faithful.

The Bank of America Corporate Center will light its rooftop Panther blue, as seen in this photo, for tonight's game.

Monday Night Football airs each week on ESPN, but tonight's game will also be broadcast on local NBC affiliate WCNC 36. Coverage begins at 8 p.m. and the game starts at 8:30. Below is video of ESPN analysts talking about how the Panthers and Bucs match up.
