Panthers fans turn homes into team sanctuaries

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

When it comes to showing their team colors, die-hard Panthers fans are pulling out all of the stops.

Over the course of the season, we have found out that Panther Nation is nothing to be messed with. Charlotte has a lot of loyal fans, but perhaps few fans are as hardcore as Moses Halterman and Tim Henderson.

Halterman has turned his Charlotte home into a Panthers sanctuary. It is decorated from the front side walk all the way up to the house. Incredibly, a lot of the decorations, including his All-Pro Banner, are actually handmade.

"I cut it out like a T-shirt, put all of it together, and sewed it all together, and just put it up there the best I could," Halterman said. "Of course Newton, I want him to be the MVP. That is why I put his up in the middle like that."

Halterman tells WBTV that he doesn't do the decorating for himself. He said he does it for the neighborhood. He says he wants everyone in Charlotte to feel connected.

"I just enjoy decorating and letting people in the neighborhood see everything. Try to get everybody involved,” Halterman said. “I love football and I love being a Panthers fan.”

While Halterman may have the best decorated home in Mecklenburg County, the strongest Panthers tribute it Gaston County has to go to Tim Henderson.

Henderson owns a graphics design company called “Image 360.” For his home, he combines work with pleasure, creating a garage door wrap that depicts several Panthers players and the Super Bowl 50 logo.

Henderson tells WBTV the garage door wrap is a hit with the neighbors.

“Everybody loves it. Everybody wants one,” Henderson said. “Unfortunately, we don’t sell them.” Henderson told WBTV that NFL licensing prohibits him from selling the Panthers display.

Still, that has not stopped him from showcasing his own Panthers pride.

“I just love the team. It’s just heart pounding action. They call them the cardiac cats, so since day one we have been Panthers fans,” Henderson told WBTV.

If you have a cool Panthers display at your house, we would love to see them! Either post them on the WBTV Facebook page or tweet them @BrodyOConnell.
