Show Your Colors, Grizz Fans: Photos of Your Fandom

Posted by Holly Whitfield | May 1st 2012 2197 0

When I announced the Grizzlies Show Your Colors contest last week, I was expecting a lot of growl towels and Z-BOing. I wasn't expecting custom Grizzlies shoes, wall-shrines and an entire bobblehead team.

If you'd like to enter the contest and win some sweet Grizz gear from the Grizzlies and Hoop City Memphis, all you have to do is email a photo of your fandom to or send it to me via Twitter @ilovememphis with the hashtag #BelieveMemphis by Friday afternoon.

Here are the submmissions I've received so far:

Ben A. had custom Grizzlies shoes made. I love the Grit and Grind detail on the sides:

@munfordmissile shows off an impressive Z-Bo:

@ChristinaMeek favors the classic yellow headband:

Kimberlie shows off her fandom at work:


Kevin M. has a solid start on his playoff beard:

Todd sent me a ton of pictures, but he could almost field a full team of bobblehead Grizzlies.

@kathrynbeatirx's dog has his own Growl Towel:


Derek has assembled an impressive wall shrine to the Grizz, complete with a cardboard Tony Allen.

It's not too late to show your colors – keep the submissions coming. I'll post more as I get them.
