A favorite in-game giveaway item every year seems to be the Homeland car flags, which will be distributed to every Thunder fan at Chesapeake Energy Arena tonight (Friday). Over the years, these flags have become prized possessions for many fans, whether they’ve picked them up at the game or in Homeland stores – so prized, in fact, that some can’t seem to let go of their old ones.
Earlier today, we asked our followers via Facebook and Twitter to send in photos of their old car flags still in use, offering to replace one lucky fan’s car flag and send them a prize pack. From the photos we’ve seen, several of you really, really don’t seem to want to give up your old flags (unless you get a replacement), having loyally flown them for a long time.
Here are a few of the pix we’ve received – keep sending them in over the weekend (either send a Twitter @-reply to @okcthunder or email firstname.lastname@example.org), and we’ll announce a winner at the end of the weekend.
Don’t have a car flag and not going to the game? Head to Homeland starting Saturday, March 24 and pick one up (while supplies last) with the purchase of ten items from the Thunder Tipoff Center!
UPDATE 3/29: Congratulations to Daniel Rodgers, who got to replace his well-worn Thunder car flag with a new one – and got some other great Thunder stuff!
