Carolina Hurricanes tickets
You might not think of ice hockey when you think of North Carolina, but the Carolina Hurricanes have made history for their state. This team started out as the New England Whalers in 1971, but they moved to North Carolina in 1997, where they became the Hurricanes. Though the team made a valiant effort in 2002's Stanley Cup finals, they didn't win a Stanley Cup until 2006. This win was North Carolina's first championship win in any professional sport. The team's story is filled with ups and downs as well as humorous anecdotes. While the Hurricanes suffered a slump in the years following their Stanley Cup win, they finally earned a place in the Stanley Cup playoffs for the first time in 10 years in 2019. The Hurricanes celebrated extensively while still on the ice, and one commentator called them a "bunch of jerks" on air. The Hurricanes, never a team to let their spirits dampen, have since proudly adopted "Bunch of jerks!" as a pregame rallying cry at their home arena, Raleigh's PNC Arena.
