Raiders Celebrate Racine Raiders Day by Getting Fitted for Championship Rings
Last week, Racine Mayor John Dickert declared December 10, 2012, as Racine Raiders Day in Racine. To help celebrate the occasion, the Texas Roadhouse donated 10% of the tab from their evening patrons to the Raiders. The Raiders celebrated the occasion by getting fitted for their 2012 Semi-Pro BCS National Champions rings at the restaurant.
It was all smiles as Raider players and staff showed up at the Texas Roadhouse Restaurant to order their championship rings. Daniel McCormick from the Jostens Company was there to size up the fingers for orders. For pretty much everyone that ordered one, waiting until mid-February for the hardware to come in is going to seem like an eternity.
