You wanna step outside?
(That's were I spit tabaccy juice on your shoes, and we fight, per cultural protocol)
I do remember some discussion about the name when the franchise came here....the stadium is of course in Charlotte, downtown.
If I may be so bold as to claim Charlotte, suh, as the regional cultural center thisaways. NC/SC are worlds apart, in fact almost polar opposites in many ways: quality of education/level, politics, and most importantly, cash money. Charlotte is loaded with carpetbagger bankers sucking us poor hillbillies dry! They won't finance my trailer, soms a biches. It's the financial center of the Southeast. SC, with its nonexistent environmetnal laws, has also attracted lots of polluting manufacturing industry....some folks say that North Charleston is looking more and more like Newark!
The county I live in, Laurens, is the most illiterate in SC...which is of course at the bottom of the national list.....thus my missionary zeal.
