We do it for all the smiles, the chuckles and the love of an amazing player playing a great game. We are humbled by those who say they are fans and prefer you'd cheer with us for Jags, take a picture and call us friend.
So where did this all begin?
Well it all started 5 years ago, as all great stories do in Las Vegas, Nevada. A group of fun loving Canadians on a guys getaway discovered a love for dressing up as a group and interacting with every person in our path. We then found a way to combine our love for fun and entertainment with our love for hockey, one year later The Travelling Jagrs were born!
Three brave Jags made that first journey from Calgary to Edmonton and quickly became the fans of the night on SportsNet West. Later when the 2013 lockout threatened to cancel the entire season we were over joyed to see that our hero was making a stop in the great white north even in a condensed schedule! So we donned our Jerseys, shells and socks and The Travelling Jagrs rode again!
The response has been overwhelming, and since that time we have been lucky enough that fans in every city we visit have shared our passion for the game and an appreciation for a living legend.
Our travels have led us to games in; Calgary, Edmonton, Philadelphia, Boston and Washington. We like to think we have helped people discover an appreciation for an amazing talent at each stop, and we have been honoured to have taken hundreds of pictures with fans where ever we go. We would love to continue to spread the love of our hero far and wide.
So now, we are ready to make the trek down to Sunrise Florida to add our voices to the crowd and help the Panthers make their final push for the 2015 Playoffs. With the support of other great fans we vow to make the 4800 km/3000 mile pilgrimage to Sunrise Florida to spend Easter with the Panthers and their great fans.
Help us do our part to feed The Cats Playoff push, and let's give Jags a chance at another cup! We promise to bring some smiles along the way and share our adventures via social media.
We are looking to attend will be April 2, 2015 and April 4, 2015. We would love to reach out to local Sunrise businesses, charities and media outlets and offer our services in filling the BB&T Centre for the Easter weekend! There are 10! of us so all these flights, hotels, jerseys and game tickets add up! So far we have done it all on our own but this time we need a little help. For our part we promise to bring the fun, the funny and the smiles that have helped us win some hearts but also watch for tshirts, group photos and entertaining videos that have become our signature. For those in the Sunrise area we try to make time for charity events, Pregame gatherings and post game revelry!
So share this post with your friends, family and the hockey fans in your life, follow us on Twitter @68isgr8 and if you see us say hello! Take a picture and let's have some fun!
