WESTFIELD – Huntington native and current Westfield resident Kevin Michaud may not be a fan of our state’s professional sports teams, but it is one big reason why he is our 2019 “Ultimate Sports Challenge” winner.
“I’m just a big sports nut,” said Michaud, whose fell in love with Brooks Robinson and the Baltimore Orioles in the 1960s. “And I enjoy the challenge.”
Michaud’s impartiality led to his series-winning victory Aug. 2-4 when the New York Yankees destroyed the Boston Red Sox in a four-game sweep. That entry was recently chosen (at random) among all event winners and Michaud was presented with a $100 gift card to Shortstop Bar & Grill.
Fans of our “Beat ‘The Putz’” pro football contest should also be warned – Michaud is a Minnesota Vikings fan. So don’t expect him to chalk up a Patriots victory every week. But then again, that might be the smart choice considering the way they are playing right now. Either way, look out!
While Michaud is also not a supporter of the Boston Bruins – – he roots for the Montreal Canadiens – – he said he will cheer on the Boston Celtics in National Basketball Association games whenever he tunes in. – CP
