FanPost: Panthers Puck-Drop Experience

How's it going everyone! I just wanted to share a recent experience that I had the privilege to participate in.

Two weeks ago I found out that I had won the dream that all hockey fans yearn for: to drop the ceremonial puck at their favorite team's game. Thanks to South Florida Ford, I was given that opportunity. I won a contest on their Twitter page on a random chance, and their FaceBook account described the event as such:

"It’s only Monday but we have your weekend plans ready - strictly for Panthers fans. This Saturday vs. the Senators…you’re checking out the owners suite, you’re dropping the puck, and you’re getting an authentic personalized jersey. One winner – it can all be yours. Just hit us on Twitter #SFFPuckDrop. Winner picked tonight!"

So naturally, I gave it a shot. Who would have known that I was in for a real treat?

When they sent me a Tweet that I had won, I went berzerk. This is something that I have always dreamed of doing.

All week I was excited, and could not wait until Sunday to get my chance. When I got to the arena, I was brought downstairs to ice level during warm ups, and when it was over, it was my time to shine. I have been to hundreds of Florida Panthers games, but no view was quite like this one. I found myself looking skyward and just in complete awe of where I was. I was speechless while the players were warming up, not believing what I was about to do. As my name was called by the announcer, I was escorted to center ice by Stanley, and greeted by Brian Campbell and Zack Smith of the Senators. After I dropped the puck, I got to shake their hands, which was incredible.

After that, I went to my seat and watched the Cats beat the Sens, to top off an incredible experience. Thanks for reading, just wanted to share with everyone the moment of a lifetime! Center ice photo below:
