Quick.  Name Charlotte’s professional sports teams.  Okay, sure, the Panthers, the Hornets, the Knights.  Those are the easy answers but how about the Checkers, the Hounds, our minor-league professional hockey and lacrosse teams?  And there’s our minor league soccer team, the Charlotte Independence.  We take a look at the impact those teams are having on the city and talk to a man trying to diversify the city’s sports franchises.

Guests
