KW Titans Propose To Put Kitchener Waterloo On The Basketball Map By Marrying Old Traditions With New Ones

Yesterday in front of a crowd of over 2000 the KW Titans took to the court at the Kitchener Memorial Auditorium.  While the crowd was there to enjoy the KWTitans Home Opener they were treated to lots of unexpected events throughout the game.

It began when Power Forward, Cavell Johnson jumped in on the player introductions to first thank the fans for supporting the team, but then to make proposal of marriage to his girlfriend and you can see by the image below she said YES!

Next Kitchener Mayor Berry Vrbanovic presented the official game ball to the team.

Soon after the basketball game got underway the Titans announced a new tradition of the fans standing until the team scores their first basket.  That didn’t take long to accomplish and the energy in THE AUD kept the team in the lead for the better part of the first half.

During the breaks the fans were introduced to the original TEAM TITANS, participated in t-shirt and merchandise tosses and two fans got to compete in a free throw challenge.

The second half was a nail biter as the teams were neck and neck.  To keep spirits high, they had their young fans head to centre court for quick CHICKEN DANCE, a dance almost every Kitchener Waterloo resident is familiar with and one lucky fan got to take 3 point tosses. While the final quarter had both teams fighting for the win, the game ended with the visitors defeating the KW Titans.  Don’t think this means the team felt defeated.  The crowd cheered and fans lined up to meet the players after the exciting game.

We were thrilled to see so many Stuff To Do With Your Kids In Kitchener Waterloo families at the game! As you can tell it was a fantastic day of basketball and family fun. Make sure you don't miss any of the fun by bringing your family to the upcoming games as well.
