Many famous athletes make guarantees, although very few have backed them up as well as NHL Hall of Fame center, Mark Messier. With his New York Rangers down three games to two and facing elimination in the 1994 Eastern Conference Finals, the captain guaranteed his team would win on the road and force a deciding Game 7 at home. Backing up that guarantee, Messier scored a hat trick to lead the Rangers to victory. New York would go on to defeat the Devils in overtime in Game 7 and knock off the Vancouver Canucks in another seven-game series to win the 1994 Stanley Cup. Now, 20 years later, Messier is making another guarantee.
Well, more than one, to be exact.
- “I am currently a member of the Can-Am Spyder Preferred Blogger Program and this post is part of my involvement. While Can-Am Spyder provides me material and necessary resources to complete various activities, all statements and sentiment in Boston Super Blog are my own.”
In a video to be released today, Messier discuss his 1994 guarantee, then strolls the streets of New York City, making several guarantees with the biggest one reflecting his new off-the-ice hobby of riding a Can-Am Spyder. Messier guarantees that any adventure-seeker who rides a Can-Am Spyder will agree it’s an exhilarating ride.
“Mark Messier represents a strong fit for Can-Am Spyder,” said Tom Riley, Can-Am Spyder marketing director. “We believe that everyone should enjoy the adventure and freedom of riding the open road. The Can-Am Spyder vehicle enables this by offering the unique combination of exhilaration, stability and control, and his history with the brand has Mark well placed to help us get the message out to potential Can-Am Spyder riders.”
If any athlete knows a thing or two about guarantees, it is certainly Messier, as you can clearly see from this entertaining video.
