The Jag Rag
My name is Bert Sparks and I am the founder of The Jag Rag, LLC. I am a Jacksonville native, born and raised. Like Mr. Khan, I am also an Eagle Scout. I have served our country in the USMC and have found myself back home in Jacksonville and married to my high school sweetheart. We are a very sports based family with our 3 kids. I am a proud fan of my home team, the Jacksonville Jaguars. I love the fact that I am able to say I have an NFL team in my town. Out of 32 teams in this country, Jacksonville has one of them.
The Jag Rag is a spirit towel used to unite the fans and the players and to show the national media what kind of fans we have down here in Jacksonville. I think now is a perfect opportunity to introduce my idea of a one-of-a-kind keepsake with the new ownership and all the big changes within the organization. I have produced a product that every fan could own, and it would give this community something to celebrate. The fans would have these towels at games and swing them in the air in a positive way, then that would allow the players to have a visual of fan support adding motivation. It is also the one product that all fans could have in common, unlike a shirt or hat, that have multiple designs. They (fans) could use this while tailgating or when in the stadium. Along with promoting team spirit, this product may be used for more practical purposes such as a shade device or damp, cool towel if it had water poured over it; we all know this would be useful since the temperature can get pretty warm in the stadium. This is a unique, original product.
The Jag Rag, LLC gives back a portion of the sale to local charitable organizations. In addition, there is a pink Jag Rag to stay in alignment with the NFL for the month of October in support of breast cancer.
At the end of the day I want to see the Jacksonville Jaguars stay here in Jax and to show the rest of the country that we do have some of the best fans in the NFL. The potential of team support that this could have is unreal. How neat would it be to watch a game on the west coast, where we might not think we have many fans and then when the camera pans the stadium we see “JAG RAGS” flying in support? I have a belief or saying that if you give 100%, 100% of the time then you cannot fail. I put myself “all in” on everything I do and that’s all I want for our community – united support for our team.
Thank you for your time and support!! GO JAGS!!!
