Panthers Pride on display in SF
Sen. Thom Tillis has his lucky shirt and playoff beard

SAN FRANCISCO (WTVD) -- Panthers pride was on full display at San Francisco's Super Bowl City.

Fans were getting pumped at a pep rally which featured the Panthers' mascot, Sir Purr, and the cheerleaders as well as plenty of 'Keep Pounding' cheers.

Senator Thom Tillis was in the crowd, sporting his lucky Panthers shirt and a playoff beard.

"I've only washed it one time this year. It was the day they lost against Atlanta, so no more washing," he said. "I have the beard to the super bowl. I had it all the way through the playoffs."

While some have lucky shirts, others take lucky shots.

One couple said they pull out a bottle of tequila and take a shot before every game.

Everyone has their own way to celebrate, as shown by two people dancing on the side of a building.
