    Awesome commercial… They really nailed Jersey’s vibe… Me, I’d love either a small version of that metal ‘rise with us’ signs, and or a keyring of it… What an awesome way to support NJ Special Olympics… Oh and my buddy Justin is the bowler in the video, so it really brings it home for me… Go Team Jersey rock the world when you hit Seattle…
