All Kerry Fraser

from KamloopsThisWeek,

Legendary NHL referee Kerry Fraser was vacationing with his family at the Marriott’s Surf Club on Palm Beach in Aruba when KTW caught up with him.

While some tourists outside were wearing hats to shield their hair from the wind — which was gusting at about 50 km/h — Fraser was doing nothing of the sort.

“There’s a strong, warm breeze in the trade winds and my hair still doesn’t move,” said Fraser….

KTW had a 10-question survey of its own for Fraser:

Lippiest player — “Without question, Bernie Federko, the old Saskatoon Blade. His own guys used to tell him to shut up. We had back-to-back games together and, on the second night, before puck drop, he was already swearing at me. I said, ‘At least let me drop the puck’.  He said, ‘Ah, f—- off and drop the f———puck.’”

3. Dirtiest player — “Tiger Williams. There’s a story in the book about when I gave him a match penalty when he snapped his stick over Randy Holt’s head. The bullshit that Tiger rattled off [in a meeting with the league’s disciplinarian at the time, Brian O’Neill] was incredible. He started talking about hunting grizzly bears. His defence was, ‘That’s why I don’t use an aluminum shaft. The wooden stick breaks easy.’ I looked at him and I said, ‘Tiger, that’s the biggest load of horseshit I’ve ever heard in my life. He winked at me and he said, ‘You know what? I think O’Neill went for it.’ He got off without a suspension.

Awesome.  Just awesome.
