It's not often these days that people volunteer to attend Charlotte Bobcats games, but that's exactly what rocker Ben Folds and his band, the Ben Folds Five, are doing.
The group is comprised of Folds, Darren Jessee and Robert Sledge (yes, despite it's name it is actually a trio). All three men hail from North Carolina and are Bobcats fans. The alternative rock group was formed in 1993, and after breaking up about 10 years ago, the band recently reunited. In September the Ben Folds Five released its first original album since 1999, "The Sound of the Life of the Mind."
Ben Folds sent out this tweet on Sunday:
It didn't take long for the Bobcats to notice. And judging by Charlotte's response, Folds may be able to get his wish.
