Revenge time for the Jacksonville Sharks when they take on Orlando this weekend. Remember when Orlando came here to play and we all saw the billboards around town saying "Jacksonville Sucks. See You Rednecks April 30. Love the Orlando Predators." Well the Sharks are doing the same but with a twist; your own words can be on the billboards. Here’s how it works Sharks have purchased five digital billboards and will display messages tweeted to the Orlando Predators by Sharks’ fans beginning this morning, and run through Friday, June 10, 2011. Just tweet messages to @ORLPredators and include the hashtag #JaxSharks and your crazy message could be on the billboard.
"The innovational use of these billboards is more than just a way for our fans to retaliate," said managing partner Jeff Bouchey, he added "Rather than simply give Orlando a message about our views of their city and team, we decided to allow Shark Nation a chance to speak their minds." Here are the locations of the billboards in Orlando
I4 W/B heading into downtown SR 436 W/B heading towards the I4 ramp SR408 east of Kirkman Road Red Bug Rd west of SR417 University Blvd east of Rouse Road.
I love the idea it’s a really fun way to show some passion for a local team. Now the big question is what am I going to tweet this week to the Predator fans. Ps you can follow me on twitter @jaygray_wokv
