Bob Jr.: Another year of the Heels cutting down the nets. Without a doubt, ain’t nothin’ finer than bein’ a Caroliner. Kings of the only sport that matters. Psycho T showed everybody that with grit, determination and fawning media coverage, you too can achieve greatness through Ty Lawson.

Eustice:Couldn’t’ve been said better.

Bob Jr.: Still, I got the irk from way Panther Pride got snuffed by them ‘Zona boys. An irk just won’t subside. I figured another Heels title would do it. But, no. The irk is acting up.

Eustice: I know what you mean. Cajin boy screwed us but good.

Bob Jr.: We was just on the verge of developing some real Panther Pride around these parts. I don’t have to tell you it’s not always so strong as it should be.

Eustice: I’s afraid to admit it to myself.

Bob Jr.: I think I got me a solution though. All’s Panther Pride needs is a gimmick. Y’know how Packers fans got cheeseheads and Steelers fans got towels and Titans fans got meth? We tried to Growl Towels, but they was gay. I think I gots an idea for something we can attach ourselves to.

Eustice: Uh-huh?

Bob Jr.: A battle flag for Panther Pride.

Eustice: PAIN-THER PRIDE!

[Bob Jr. unfurls flag]

Eustice: Oh, that is mighty decent. Mighty. Decent.

Bob Jr.: This here flag, it gonna gin us up some Painther Pride.

Eustice: Yes indeed.

Bob Jr.: For the time being, though, we best keep it a secret. I think it’d be most effective if’n we dropped it on people real sudden-like.

Eustice: Well then we gots us a problem.

Bob Jr.: What kind of problem?

Eustice: A I-told-Annabelle problem.

Bob Jr.: Y’did what?!

Eustice: I tole Annabelle.

Bob Jr.: But how’d you know about it?

Eustice: Snuck a peek.

Bob Jr.: Now, dang it, you know she gonna flap her gums ’bout this.

Eustice: Oh, I know it.

Bob Jr.: Won’t stop flapping them gums ’til everybody under the sun knows.

Eustice: Maybe she’ll keep quiet.

Bob Jr.: We had an omerta!

Eustice: What’s omerta?

Bob Jr.: Idjit! Omerta is Italian for “ain’t supposeda say shit.”

Eustice: Aw dag! Can we reomerta?

Bob Jr.: No! Omerta is one-time thing!

Eustice: Well, I’s sorry.

Bob Jr.: Ya best be!

Eustice: Can we still use the flag?

Bob Jr.: YA DANGED RIGHT WE’S USING THE FLAG. WHAT WITH ALL THE FABRIC I BOUGHT FROM MICHAEL’S!

Eustice: Can I write the Pledge to Painther Pride?

Bob Jr.: I’m sorry. You got a tin ear. Won’t come out right.

Eustice: All right… [sighs] Painther Pride.

Bob Jr.: PANTHER PRIDE!
