Cheering the Bulls on to Victory

Brontos and Bulls go together like peas and carrots.

In other words, we’re big fans of our hometown heroes (and neighbors on the American Tobacco Campus), the Durham Bulls. And we’re lucky to be able to enjoy Bulls games often, thanks to our sweet season tickets and company events.

August 24 was our annual “Bulls Sponsorship Night” event, a perennial favorite here in the Durham office. About 150 Brontos descended (or should we say, ascended?) upon the Bulls Party Deck for a night of camaraderie and cheering the Bulls on to victory.

During the game, we were treated to an all-you-can-eat buffet of game-day favorites: hotdogs, hamburgers and, of course, beer – some of it brewed locally by more of our Durham neighbors.

After stuffing ourselves and sweating through several scoreless innings, we gathered to get on live camera to show our team spirit and remind everyone in the stadium that Durham Brontos love our Bulls.

What could make this evening even more magical, you ask? For starters, the Bulls won 3-2 and took home the International League South Division championship! And to top it off, the night ended with some amazing fireworks.

As usual, it was a great night, and we’re already looking forward to next year. Go Bulls!
