To give you an idea of how much fun Mr. Williams likes to have at games, check out this great video that was part of the CBC program This Hour Has 22 Minutes. It's pretty darn funny, and gives you a glimpse into what kind of guy is running the IceCaps.
How funny is that? The President and CEO of the IceCaps smuggling in beers to the hockey game because beer is $6.00 is absolutely priceless! I'm still chuckling over it!
The full clip from the CBC is linked here, and I have to say that more people like Mr. Williams would undoubtedly be a benefit to the game of hockey. The man loves the game, and is willing to do anything to make it successful! If there was any wonder why the IceCaps have been so successful in connecting with fans in Newfoundland, you need to look no further than Mr. Williams. He enjoys a joke, has a great sense of humour, and doesn't take himself too seriously. That's the winning recipe for success in the entertainment business!
MO' BRO: So far, the Mo' Bro All-Stars have seen Mike Gartner, Wendel Clark, Dirk Graham, Grant Fuhr, and Dennis Maruk added to the team, and we'll toss our first defenceman into the mix today. Like Grant Fuhr's inclusion, this moustachioed man won a number of Stanley Cups while wearing the upper lip fuzz!
Six Stanley Cups, two Norris Trophies, a ten-time NHL All-Star, and a Conn Smythe Trophy - Larry Robinson has one decorated moustache! If you want to get in on the action, head over to the Movember page and get registered so your 'stache can stand amongst these great 'staches!
Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
