Football Fans Show Panther Pride in Wilmington

JANUARY 21, 2006 -- The Carolina Panthers hit the gridiron on Sunday to battle the Seattle Seahawks for the NFC championship.

Fans in Wilmington and across the Tarheel State have already started their pre-game festivities.

If you still need to pick up some Panthers gear to get in the mood for the big game, Sports Fanatic has plenty to offer. They have everything from Panthers jerseys to dog leashes.

Workers at the Sports Fanatic say the gear is going fast and may be scarce if the Panthers win on Sunday.
