birthday. And the Phantoms are ready to celebrate
this Sunday at 5:00 against the Binghamton Senators.
For one game only, the team will switch out the
Phantoms logo on their jersey for a picture of
Dax instead. The special Dax jerseys will also
be auctioned off to the fans after the game. Check
out the jersey design for Dax's big day!
"This is a really rare thing in sports,"
said official spokesperson for Dax, Andrew Hill,
who is also Director of Fun and Community Relations
for the Phantoms. "You see other teams where
their mascot IS their logo. But Dax is a beaver.
He's not really a part of the logo at all. So
to completely take away the team logo and put
Dax's face on the jersey is something you don't
see a lot and we're really excited."
Fans will get their chance to own a piece of Dax
history in the post-game jersey auction. The game-worn
jerseys will be awarded to the winning bidders
and presented personally by the players right
off their backs.
These specialty jerseys are another of the outrageous
looks the Adirondack Phantoms have worn this season
which have included Tuxedo Jerseys on New Year's
Eve and Mustache Jerseys as part of their Movember
promotion. But these are the first mascot jerseys
they have ever worn as the team thanks Dax for
all his hard-work and support and non-stop hilarity
and weirdness at all of the Phantoms games.
Additionally, some of Dax's area mascot friends
will be stopping by for the big celebration which
include a mascot hockey game between periods of
the Phantoms' game. And we are told that an even
bigger birthday cake awaits Dax too.
Happy Birthday, Dax!
