    Rupert apperance in St. Louis area

    Survivor's Rupert to be in Gateway

    May 21, 2004 - SAUGET, IL – The Gateway Grizzlies are proud to announce that Rupert Boneham, star of CBS’ Survivor: All-Stars will appear for the Grizzlies June 16th.

    Rupert, arguably Survivor’s most popular contestant, was recently voted by viewers as the winner of a one million-dollar prize during Survivor: America’s Tribal Council.

    Rupert will address the crowd as well as throw out a ceremonial first pitch prior to the 7:05 game against the Springfield/Ozark Ducks.

    The Grizzlies have also planned a “Survivor Night” for the game. Activities will include a Rupert look-a-like contest, Rupert/Survivor trivia, a spear fishing contest and other Survivor-themed games and activities.

    Grizzlies players and staff will wear special tie-dyed shirts in honor of Rupert’s most notable wardrobe piece. The Player’s jerseys will be auctioned off for charity following the game. The specific charity that will benefit is Kid’s Hope, a foundation that Rupert has started to teach skilled trades to troubled teens.

    “This has been a project of mine for some time,” Grizzlies General Manager Tony Funderburg said. “I am a big Survivor fan, but even if you’re not a Survivor fan this is going to be a fun night!”

    Despite his popularity and demanding appearance schedule, the Grizzlies are the first professional baseball team to have Rupert appear at a game.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!" -- Steve Parker

    Rupert was at last nights Eastern Conferene Finals game in Indianapolis. He fired up the crowd before it started, by doing his usual yelling and saying 'We need this game!!', and then had some pretty nice seats behind one of the hoops.

    Pistons won though
