After thousands of votes were casted by Cavaliers fans to choose from three Cavalier Girls for the calendar cover shot, Jamie was selected to be the face of the Cavalier Girls calendar.
“The 14-month calendar (November 2008-December 2009) has a retro look and feel in celebration of the Cavaliers’ Hardwood Classics 1970-74 classic gold uniforms that the Cavaliers players will wear for selected games this season. The calendar features each dance team member photographed in stunning Cavaliers attire on a high-gloss 81” x 15” poster-like page. It also includes a photograph of the entire Cavalier Girls squad. The calendar was photographed by New York photographer and Cleveland native, Steve Vaccariello and art director Rob Babik. ”
The calendar is available online or the Cavaliers Team Shop at the Q. The Calendar is selling for $13.92 at CavaliersTeamShop.com
The Cavaliers this year have been very quiet about the Cavalier Girls so far this season. In fact, if you didn’t go to a preseason game or to the Cavalier Girls Web site, then you probably didn’t hear about the announcement of the new team. Looking through the photos of the new team, it seems to me that non of the girls from the 2007-08 are back this year.
That didn’t stop the Cavaliers organization from producing their annual swimsuit calendar for the 2008-09 season. Five teams in 2007-08 season issued these calendars. Sales of these calendars have soared and they are usually one of the top selling items in the team shop.
