Danny Clark didn't expect the call.
In fact, Clark – a long-time Jaguars season-ticket holder – said he didn't even realize the team was running a promotion in which winning really, really cool prizes was a possibility.
That made call he received Thursday, well . . .
Really, really cool.
Clark, an original season-ticket holder in 1995 who also has had tickets for the last 10 years, received a call Thursday morning informing him he had won two tickets to the 2012 Super Bowl in Indianapolis – the biggest prize in the Jaguars' 30 Days of Teal promotion.
"I had no idea it was going on," Clark said. "I think I did to begin with, but they called me and it just totally surprised me."
The 30 Days of Teal promotion ran throughout June. Winners and prizes can be found at www.jaguars.com/tealdays
"We had a great response to the 30 Days of Teal promotion, which along with our three continuing season-ticket owner benefit programs – Teal Deals, Jaguars Advantage and Jaguars Rewards – has allowed us to demonstrate how much we value our season ticket owners," Jaguars Senior Manager Business Development, Sales and Marketing Steve Livingstone said. "Each of our winners has been thrilled and excited when we've called to let them know they were a winner.
"We want to continue to deliver great value to our season ticket owners and by offering promotions like 30 Days of Teal the message is clear: that along with the best seats and the lowest prices there are great additional rewards and benefits to being a Jaguars season ticket owner."
Clark, who lives in Green Cove Springs, originally bought season tickets in the inaugural season of 1995. After letting them lapse briefly, he bought them again in 2001 and has held them since. He said supporting the Jaguars matters, and he typically encourages friends to buy season tickets.
"I think we (the Jaguars) are going to get better," Clark said. "I'd like to be there in person to witness that. I just enjoy the NFL. I could actually go to any game. It's just a different feeling."
Early next year, he won't be going to just any game, but the biggest game of the 2011 season.
"Maybe Jacksonville will be there," he said. "Wouldn't that be great?"
