Turner's Take: Gratitude

What a privilege! How grateful are we that we are Carolina? That doesn't mean that everything that Carolina does is right — as we've learned over the past seven years. But there's a reason that the ABC fans have to join forces. It's because they're not Carolina. In fact, Carolina so dominates the thoughts of some that they can't even fully enjoy their own successes. (Argyle Report)
