"Stand Up. Stand Out." at CavFanatic Night at The Q!

CLEVELAND, OH - December 30, 2009 - To be crazy about the Cavaliers is easy, but to be a CavFanatic is to STAND UP and STAND OUT. CavFanatics are a spirited bunch who wear their patch of loyalty for the Cleveland Cavaliers proudly, loudly and united as members of the team’s online community! To celebrate the success and impressive growth of the Cavaliers official social network CavFanatic.com presented by Verizon Wireless, the Wednesday, January 6th game vs. the Washington Wizards at 7:00 p.m. will be dedicated to duly recognizing the Fanatics...LOUDLY AND PROUDLY.

For the game, the Cavaliers players will wear a special CavFanatic edition of this season’s Hardwood Classic (HWC) jersey with a jock tag that displays the Fanatic mantra “Stand Up. Stand Out.” It is also Mo Williams Bobblehead Night and every fan in attendance will receive Mo’s bobblehead, which will be dressed appropriately for the evening – in the CavFanatic HWC jersey. In addition, 40 lucky fans will be randomly selected to receive a limited collector’s edition Mo “Fog Raw” bobblehead recognizing Williams’ hipster alter-ego from the popular Nike Hyperizers commercial. Each “Fog Raw” bobblehead is numbered 1-40 on the bottom of its base and will be presented in a display case that has two unique stickers to certify authenticity.
