Democrats Trying To Make 'Panthers Stadium' Happen

Maggie Haberman reports that for the second time, the host committee responsible for spreading the good cheer about the upcoming Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina has referred to the venue for Thursday night's speech from President Barack Obama as "Panthers Stadium." "Panthers Stadium," if I recall correctly, is where the Dillon Panthers of the "Friday Night Lights" teevee series play. Certainly this would be a bold and transcendental move, to have the last night of the convention take place in a fictional town in Texas. But that's not actually happening. Rather, the folks behind the convention would just prefer to play down the actual name of the Carolina Panthers' home field -- Bank Of America stadium.
