CBJ fan takeover: Our Blue Jackets fan caves

The 5th Line answers the call on their CBJ hangouts

by Jeff Svoboda @JacketsInsider /

Over the past two decades, since the Blue Jackets made their debut and brought the highest level of pro hockey to Columbus in October 2000, the team's fans have time and again proved their dedication to CBJ hockey. 

So during the month of June, we decided to turn over to the 5th Line. Each week, we've asked a question of Blue Jackets fans and compiled responses here in a story to run each Friday. It's a chance for the team diehards to show their passion as we all wait for hockey's return. 

This week, it was a request -- we wanted to see the CBJ fan caves that people have put together to celebrate their fandom. Here's the best responses we got from the 5th Line.

Show us your CBJ fan cave!

Shane Guilfoyle  

Guilfoyle reports that "my kids are taking over the basement," but offered this glimpse of his hockey room, which you can see in the photo at the top of the story. 

Thomas Roark 

Roark is a lifelong jackets fan who was born and raised in Columbus. He moved to Michigan six years ago for a job, but his fandom is all CBJ. Here are a few pictures from his collection, which also includes his quest to acquire a game-used stick from every Jackets player. It's hard to do it all justice, in these pictures, but Roark has quite a collection.


Melanie Ross 

Ross sent in this photo of her Blue Jackets corner that features plenty of signed CBJ memorabilia 


Adam Thomas 

Thomas sends in this pic of his Blue Jackets collection. He reports, "Mine's not necessarily a fan cave but I got a wall and a shelf. Bjorkstrand game-used stick, singed on fan appreciation day. Atkinson signed jersey and Jones and Werenski signed pucks." 

Here are a couple of submissions from Twitter as well.
