While the NHL's Devils and the Avalanche fought it out for the
Stanley Cup, hockey players of a different sort competed for a
championship trophy of their own. National "Bubble Boy"
champions from Boston faced off against Wayne Gretzky and Bubble Boy
Hockey League Players Agent Phil Esposito following the BBHL National
Championship Competition. The third annual Bud Light Bubble Boys Hockey
League National Championship, which capped a four-month, adult consumer
promotion held in bars and restaurants across the country. Thirty-three
two-person teams who won their local market competitions, met for a
table hockey tournament and a chance to play Mr. Gretzky. Following
hours of intense competition, team "Respect," Bob Leary and
Kenny Dubois of Boston skated away with the honors. "Tonight's
competition was even more exciting than years past," said Tim
Murphy, brand manager, Bud Light. "It was a great opportunity for
hockey fans across the country to compete for a chance to play Gretzky
and Esposito while enjoying a Bud Light."
