Famous People from Charlotte North Carolina

The Carolina Panthers are playing against the Denver Broncos on Sunday in the Super Bowl at 6:30 p.m. on CBS with commercials with a big half-time show. Tune in early if you want to see Lady Ga-Ga sing the National Anthem.

The people of Carolina and possible/ probable Carolina Panther fans. Look for celebrity sightings and fun commercials.

Billy Grahame evangelist

Susan J. Helms, Brigadier General-select in the USAF; former NASA astronaut born in Charlotte lives in Denver. (possible conflict of interest here.)

Richard Petty, winner of 200 NASCAR races and 7-time series champion.

Joe Gibbs, Hall of Fame football coach; NASCAR Championship team owner.

Leon Levine, founder of Family Dollar; billionaire, businessman and philanthropist.

Erskine Bowles, President of UNC System (2005–2010); former White House Chief of Staff.

Willie Weeks, bass guitarist, known for his work with Donny Hathaway, Stevie Wonder and George Harrison.

Bobby Jones, former NBA player and 1972 Olympian.

Michael Jordan, NBA basketball player and owner of the Charlotte Hornets.

Anthony Renard Foxx the United States Secretary of Transportation.

I am not playing favorites only listing Carolina.  I did famous Denver people last year when Denver was in the Super Bowl. Jerry Richardson, owner of the Carolina Panthers is paying for every full time employee, intern to executive to go to the Super Bowl, flight and hotel included. Go Team.

Tomorrow menus and munchies for the Super Day.

The Mayors of both Denver and Charlotte have made a fun wager that includes community service.  The winning mayor will arrange for the mayor of the opossing team to participate in a say of volunteer service with the AmeriCorps members.
