Here Is A List Of This Season’s Grizzlies Giveaways
Question: What is the one thing that gets some Memphians more excited than Trader Joe’s, Memphis-themed t-shirts, and snowpocalypses combined?
Answer: Grizzlies Giveaway nights.
The freebies given to the first fans to arrive at FedExForum are coveted items, and they can be really fun: think Grizzlies pet bandanas and fanny packs. Or they can be just plain…weird, like the Mike Conley “Elf on the Shelf”…that’s not going to be terrifying at all.
Folks line up hours (and I do mean hours) ahead of time to snag a Grizzlies wrestling belt, scarf, or cooking supplies with Marc Gasol on them. A few years back, certain fans got really into the Wrestling nights, so this year, the Grizz are apparently embracing it – there are six Grizz Wrestling Nights. They’re marked below with an (*).
