There was all sorts of buzz on the morning of Friday, December 7, 2012 about who the special guest would be at Fishbowl’s annual Christmas party. Some speculated it might be a famous business leader, others thought it would be the head of a university, and others (myself included) simply had no clue what to expect.
All of our expectations were blown away, though, when out stepped former Brigham Young University football head coach LaVell Edwards onto the stage.
LaVell Edwards! One of the greatest college football coaches of all time was standing in front of us describing what makes a team work well, sharing some colorful stories from his glory days, and signing footballs for the entire management staff. It was amazing. I’m not even a football fan and even I was excited to see him in person.
Check out the videos below to see the man himself, as well as plenty of other people presenting and having fun during the party. I was busy telling jokes during the intermission and singing in my Mario costume (more on that in a future blog post). I’ll let these two videos do the rest of the talking.
Merry Christmas, everyone!
