Carolina fan searching for tickets to see his second Panthers Super Bowl

“You don’t know when they’re gonna be there again,” says Carolina Panthers fan Chip Laughinghouse. “I’ll kick myself if this option doesn’t come up again and I missed it.”

Laughinghouse is pounding to find his way to Super Bowl 50. We first introduced you to Laughinghouse on Christmas, when we toured his extensive Panther paraphernalia collection. He says he’s willing to fly there and back on the same day if it means seeing his favorite team.

“I did it that way last time and that’s how I’m looking at doing it this time,” says Laughinghouse.

He watched the 2003 Carolina Panthers team face the New England Patriots in Super Bowl 38 in Texas. He says the quick turn around and long flight is not a concern.

“You’re on adrenaline the whole time,” he says. “It’s not like the flight bothers you or the all day and all night gets to you. You’re just on a high, a Super Bowl high.”

If you’re not able to fly, AAA Carolina has a road trip route which hits some Panther pitstops along the way. Laughinghouse says regardless of how fans get there, he thinks Panther Nation will come out in full force to support the team.

“They’ve been my team since 1995 when they started,” Laughinghouse says. “This team though is not like any other team I’ve ever seen. The last Super Bowl team was good and they had some great players but this team has so much character and they’re easy to love.”

He says he’s still searching for tickets but if he’s not able to make it to California, he still plans to support the team.

“I’m going to Charlotte if they win,” says Laughinghouse.
