Just a few words of Thanks…

Jan. 26, 2011

Ladies and Gents of Raptorland,

As FAN NIGHT approaches (FRIDAY!!), I wanted take a minute to give thanks to the people that really make all this magic happen… the FANS.

Truth be told, without fans (aka YOU), what is there?

Well... Not much, but silence and an empty Air Canada Centre! So I wanted to shout out to the people who have truly made my experience as a Raptors Dancer special. Even though it is technically our job to pump YOU guys up, I can’t use words to describe the adrenaline rush I feel when I look up and see everyone rise out of their seats in excitement and scream when their favourite player hits that all-important three-pointer and for that, I thank you.

I thank you for coming every week and filling our stands. I thank you for showing your pride in your red and black. I thank you for dancing with us in your seats (and sometimes joining us during a timeout -- ha ha!). I thank you for supporting your one and only Canadian NBA team and cheering as loud as you can. And I thank you for caring, week in and week out. It definitely doesn’t go unnoticed. ‘Cause without you, we truly are nothing. You are the core of Raptorland and we need you! So come out Friday and cheer LOUD as your Raptors take on the Bucks! We’ve got lots of surprises in store and I can’t wait to dance with y’all ALLLL night!!!!

Ciao for now!
