An ambitious Jacksonville native named Bert Sparks recently introduced Jaguars fans to The Jag Rag, which his website describes as “The Spark of a New Beginning” for the Jaguars organization.

Fans can purchase a Jag Rag with team colors for $10 at TheJagRag.com or a pink one for $12 to help support breast cancer awareness. According to Sparks’ site, 10% of all proceeds from Jag Rag sales goes to local charities.
