The Jacksonville Jaguars and Delaware North Sportservice, the official EverBank Field food and beverage provider, have announced that teal beer and teal food will be on the menu at this Sunday’s AFC Wild Card Playoff game between the Jaguars and the Buffalo Bills.

In a written statement issued to this writer, Donald Versace, Delaware North General Manager at EverBank Field said: “Jaguars fans are the best in the country. We wanted to bring something different to Jacksonville, something they’ve never seen before, to celebrate the team and the team’s colors. It’s a fun way to share in the excitement and thank them for the season!”

Indeed! It’s been 18 years since the Jaguars hosted a playoff game — a game this writer attended on January 23, 2000. With a number of seasons with no playoff hopes, steadfast fans have remained supportive of the team. To say that the city of Jacksonville and the fans are excited, is an understatement, to be sure. Tickets are available on the secondary market.

The teal beer is supplied by Anheuser-Busch and will be sold throughout the stadium on Sunday while supplies last. In addition, colorful teal food options will also add to the flavor of the game.

Yes, these are what could be called “buns of teal!”

A teal dessert also comes with a mini-helmet or in a regular cup.
