After a light week in which they played two road games while having five days off sprinkled in (some off days due to the NBA All Star Game), the Charlotte Bobcats return home this Sunday for the first of four home games next week. The New Jersey Nets come in on Sunday, Orlando Magic Tuesday, Utah Jazz Wednesday, Nets again Friday; then the Bobcats hit the road next Saturday to play the Oklahoma City Thunder. This is likely the busiest week the Bobcats have this season, particularly with four home games, so it makes perfect sense that the team is holding an Open House this Sunday, March 4, 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., at Time Warner Cable Arena, free and open to the public. Allow them to reintroduce themselves. RSVP by clicking here.

Each person who attends the Open House will receive a free ticket to attend the 6 p.m. game against the Nets later that evening. You could make it an all-day family outing for free (that's different from an all-day family-free outing, which is what I tend to have...LOL). If you wanna kill some time in between the end of Open House and start of the game, you can visit Levine Museum of the New South, which is free on Sundays and is only a few blocks away. Plus, this is a Bank of America "Museums on Us" weekend, so if you have a BofA card you can visit any of these six Charlotte museums for free today and tomorrow: Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, Harvey B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts + Culture, Levine Museum of the New South, Mint Museum Randolph, and Mint Museum Uptown.

Also regarding the Bobcats, their second match-up against the Nets next week is one of three games this month in which the franchise will pay tribute to the Carolina Cougars by wearing throwback uniforms. The Cougars played in North Carolina as part of the American Basketball Association from 1969 to 1974. They were a "regional team," playing their home games in Greensboro (where they were based), Charlotte, and Raleigh. In games they've dubbed Hardwood Classics, the Bobcats will wear Cougar uniforms March 9 against the Nets, March 23 against the Milwaukee Bucks, and March 30 against the Denver Nuggets.

But this is what I'm most fond of regarding the homage to the Cougars:

The Lady Cats are Cougars too (I kid with the pun).
