We are a few days away from kickoff and I believe that most Panther fans are excited for this upcoming season. Things are now coming into place with the team giving us hope for a great season as well as the push by Steve Pederson to make this season the best it can be for the team and for the fans. That is why I am putting this challenge out to everyone. I will challenge myself, Jones, the readers of this site, the other Pitt blogs around, and anyone who is a Panther fan.
I am challenging you to be Panther loud and Panther proud at the game. I want to see everyone with a ticket in their seat at least 30 minutes to kick off. I am challenging you to clap and make noise for Pitt as we take the field. I am challenging you to sing and clap along to the fight song. I am challenging everyone to yell P - I - T - T LETS GO PITT! I am challenging you to clap, bang on seats, or yell when the defense is preparing for a 3rd down. I am challenging us all to be better fans.
The team can feed off our energy and we can make a difference. We will also change the perception of Pitt football and show that there is passion for Pitt football.
Don't be afraid to be the only one in your row or section to clap or sing or make noise. We are all Panther fans and we shouldn't be embarrassed to support our team.
Lastly, I am challenging everyone who reads this to challenge someone else. This is the year we can turn things around. This is the time where hopes become reality. This is the year where we make a difference and where the team makes a difference. We as fans must do what needs to be done. Don't let this challenge pass you by.
