Not the first entertaining weatherman from Charlotte.  Interestingly enough, same station:

Not really sure where to put this, but I guess it counts as a "picture". I am not sure if any of ya'll even look at memes or know what they are, but Charlotte officially has one now. It's all over the internet.

 

Charlotte news went downhill when Heather Childers and Nathalie Pasquerella both left for New York.

It’s not Charlotte, but the Canes are the only professional team in the Carolinas to  win a championship.  Hopefully, the Panthers will one day too.

Maybe they can talk to Tepper about doing one of those outdoor stadium games at the Bank? If the Canes ever want to come to Charlotte and share Spectrum Center we can send the Checkers up there to become the Raleigh Riptides, haha.

An outdoor game at BoA Stadium would be great.

I’m surprised that the Canes chose Raleigh over Charlotte.   They must have gotten a better deal in Raleigh when they moved from Hartford.

Charlotte does make more sense for a regionally named team. I doubt many people from South Carolina make the trip to Raleigh or feel very connected to the franchise. At the time I guess the Charlotte option would have been sharing the Coliseum on Tyvola Road with the Hornets, though the potential of getting an NHL Franchise in Charlotte could have possibly helped the case for the new Uptown arena.  One thing I will say about having the AHL Checkers instead of the NHL Hurricanes is that at least they have made good use of the recently renovated Bojangles’ Coliseum. The Whalers had a really cool logo. That identity should be sent back to Hartford to be used for the AHL Wolfpack.

The owner of the Hurricanes probably thought it would be easier for them to gain corporate sponsorships and fan support in Raleigh where they are the only professional sports team in town as opposed to competing against the Panthers and Hornets for fan support and more importantly corporate sponsorship dollars...

True, though they do have to compete with three ACC collegiate teams in the Triangle. New owner Tom Dundon might be more open to the idea of moving the team to Charlotte, but Raleigh is a growing city itself and I guess it doesn’t hurt to let them have the NHL team if we have NBA, NFL, and potentially MLS and MLB in the future!

I think if Dundon were to move it it would be Houston. Supposedly he has dangled "Oh well so and so would do this for me in Houston" over Raleigh and NC officials a couple times already in his short tenure.

You might be right.  I know some people, including Hall of Fame and former Panthers GM Bill Polian were not thrilled with him taking over the AAF (Alliance of American Football) and then shutting it down before it even finished a full season.  Many thought it had the potential to basically become the minor league for the NFL if given a chance.
