We all know how Rider fans like to celebrate their team, but fans of the Saskatchewan Rush are quickly making a name for themselves.
Saskatoon’s Jordan Kropla can back up his die-hard fan claim.
After the Rush defeated Buffalo in game one of the best-of-three National Lacrosse League Championship, Kropla got to work on building the ultimate Rush tailgate trailer.
“Saturday is its maiden voyage. It’s all washed up and ready to go,” said Kropla.
The towable cheer section has all the bells and whistles: barbeque, two coolers, a flip up bar table and astro turf.
No detail was overlooked. The trailer is painted in Rush green and at the back flies a Rush flag.
“It was honestly on the street for probably five minutes before people were coming out for pictures,” he said from his home Friday.
To further enhance the experience, Kropla stocked up on an array of tailgating accessories; green solo cups, chairs and a green cow bell.
“We figured let’s get people out, let’s get people excited about the games, more so than they already are.”
For Kropla, it’s about soaking up the game day experience.
“Tailgating is such a huge thing in the states that we figured let’s try having a version of it here.”
“What better than a Rush game with 15,000 people.”
Fans will find Kropla’s trailer parked outside SaskTel Centre on Saturday afternoon.
