Do You See Hornets?

My experiment: I’m collecting pictures/sightings of people in Charlotte Hornets gear. Bonus points for location. Super bonus points if that location is Charlotte.

Charlotte Hornets Hat

This should be organic. Yeah, you can put on a shirt or hat or jersey or whatever, but it’s better if you’re not the one who’s creating the moment. If you are, I’m not going to post it.

Posters/signs/etc in public places work. If you see Hugo in your toast, well, sure.

Submit stuff under the submit tag on this site. Use the #ISeeHornets hashtag on Twitter. If you send it to me, it’s fair game.

Am I advocating for a Bobcats-to-Hornets name change in Charlotte? Not really. I’m more curious to see how many people are still wearing this stuff, and where.

Happy hunting.
