    I got so sick of the Canadian cold, I moved down to Charlotte just to avoid the snow. And of course to join the My Fox Carolinas family as a Digital Journalist. I grew up in Calgary (think the Houston of Canada) and after graduating from Carleton University with a Bachelor of Journalism, I moved to Toronto to cover sports; which in Canada means hockey.

    Do you think you can your family could go six months without buying anything new? There are two families here in Charlotte that have taken on that very challenge. The women behind health coaching company 'Spunky Avocado' brought their families on board for what they've dubbed the 'Suburban Smackdown'.

Charlotte, NC - The fact the Charlotte Bobcats are in the playoffs for only the second time in team history is a fact worth celebrating. And the Bobcats organization is doing just that.

They hosted a watch party at Wild Wings Cafe in the EpiCentre for fans of the team -- at least the ones who couldn't ditch work and jet down to Miami for the game -- to come out and cheer them on together as they take on the Miami Heat in Game of the opening round of playoffs. 

The Lady Cats were there, beer was flowing, and fans will even had the chance to win playoff tickets for when the Bobcats return to Charlotte next week.

Phillip Graham, who has been a Bobcats fan all his life, was there to catch the action with his family. He says he thinks the watch parties are a great idea. "They bring families together, they bring fans together, they're good for the city," says Graham.

Although the Bobcats couldn't quite pull off a victory, the crowd was mostly just excited to have the opportunity to get together and cheer on their team in the playoffs. One fan -- who is probably not alone in his loyalty -- told me that whether or not they won the game, he would stick by his team no matter what.
