#SPOTTED: CANADIAN SPORTSCASTING ICON BRIAN WILLIAMS
Some days I’m literally convinced that I was born to meet Celebrities. Today at my Day Job, I head down to the Gym to get a nice, nourishing breakfast, when I had to do a triple-take. Why in the World would Sportscaster Brian Williams be at my office working out? Well he was.
Although I’m not much of a Sports Nut, watching the Olympics as a Kid was unavoidable and you all know how much I love Horse Racing, for which he was a regular Commentator on major Race Telecasts. Brian Williams was always on CBC with a highly-distinctive manner about him which came to define much of my younger years.
We missed Williams’ familiar voice and face on CTV‘s (which he transitioned over to) coverage of the Winter Olympics in Sochi this year, but the Man certainly has left behind a legacy which several after him could only aspire for.
The Officer of the Order of Canada was awesome to stop and pose for a Photo by the Cash Register with me today, extending a handshake. Made. My. Life!
