FAN-tastic Friday

FAN-tastic Friday Winner John Griese

The Rampage are pleased to announce FAN-tastic Friday for all of our fans who “Like” us on Facebook. Each Friday throughout the offseason, we will pick one fan to highlight on both Facebook and sarampage.com. Fans will be playing for fabulous Rampage prizes each week and will be entered into a Fan Playoff bracket. Once 16 fans have been highlighted, we will begin Fan Playoffs in which all Rampage fans will vote on the match ups through Facebook. One lucky fan will be voted as the most FAN-tastic and will win a team autographed stick.
This week’s FAN-tastic Friday winner is John Gries!

Learn why John is this week’s winners in a Q&A with sarampage.com:

From Jay Smith who nominated John from the FAN-tastic Fan Submissions:
From his many game worn jerseys to his kilts and boots. John is the original Rampage hooligan. John not only is a fan but a hockey promoter bringing his troops and friends to many games, including reserving the Hooters Zone to get ‘em all on the glass to experience this great game. He is deploying soon and will miss most of the 11-12 season, but this will be one way to show a great fan how much he is appreciated.

How long have you been a Rampage fan? How did you find out about the Rampage?
I have been a Rampage fan from the start! Well, even before that when the name of the team was the "Stampede" for a brief while.

What is your favorite thing about going to Rampage games?
My favorite thing about the Rampage games is the energy. I love how the fans are truly into the game and that the players feed of it. This is why when I bring new friends to the games they are hooked; my single seat season ticket has now grown to 5 of us as full season and a handful of half season holders. 

Who is your favorite player? Why?
My favorite player would have to be Ryan Hollweg. The ‘Stach is great to watch, when he faces off across from a player you can see that the glove are going to come off and the place is going to erupt.

What is your best memory from the 2010-11 season?
My best memory of the 2010-2011 season was the Pink in the Rink night.  I got 20 friends together and we all were rocking pink that night.  I am happy to have been at the largest attendance ever for the Rampage.

What are you most looking forward to in the 2011-12 season?
I am looking forward to the end of the Rodeo Road trip during this season.  I know is sounds funny, but here is why:  I am currently deployed to Afghanistan and will miss most of the season, but I am scheduled to get back in San Antonio about the same time the Rampage return from the Road Trip, so it will be a home coming for us both.  I will be rocking my Jersey here for the games via web cast, but I can't wait to see some live action.

In his own words:
I would also like to add a thanks to the Rampage, its Staff and Fans for the yearly Salute to the Troops and all the wounded worriers support.  It is great to see an organization do so much for my fellow bothers in arms.
