With no Panthers in the Super Bowl this year, perhaps fans feel themselves fumbling through darkness for the magic that was lost on our lackluster season. The only light at the end of this tunnel of sports despair is a miniature football field filled with puppies.

You’re feeling better already.

Yes, that’s correct. Charlotte will play host to not one but two local Puppy Bowls this year — one on January 28 and another on Super Bowl Sunday. Totally makes up for our horrendous NFL season.
