Soccer star and world champion was 'an unbelievable iron man'
A gifted and natural athlete, he was best known as the Canadian who won ABC television's Superstars contest three consecutive times between 1977 and 1979. After that, the network changed the rules
By Peter MALLETT, Page S9
He was a gifted Canadian soccer player who was banned from competing in America's most popular made-for-television athletic competition because he was just too good.
After Brian (Budgie) BUDD won his third consecutive ABC Wide World of Sports' Superstars competition between 1977 and 1979, the notion of a relative unknown competitor from the obscure sport of soccer defeating top major-league and Olympic athletes was too much for network executives to fathom. His success forced them to invoke the infamous "Brian Budd rule" that banned any competitor from the event after they had won it three times.
"He stood out above other athletes," said Canadian Football League Hall of Fame quarterback Tony Gabriel, who had lost to Mr. BUDD in the competition. "That just gave him an aura. Someone who kind of raised the bar and the standard for those competitions." During the 1978 contest, Mr. BUDD topped U.S. Olympic pole-vaulting champion Bob Seagren and Cleveland Browns star Greg Pruitt.
The son of an Atlantic Canadian couple who first settled in Toronto before moving to Delta, British Columbia, Brian was the second of four children and the only boy. His father was a strict disciplinarian and they did not enjoy a happy relationship. One of his favourite childhood stories was how his father, Leighton, introduced him to swimming.
"He [Brian] used to always tell this story about how his father taught him to swim," said his friend Bob COWAN, a former CFRB broadcaster. "Brian would say his father took him down to the docks in the harbour section of Vancouver and threw him right into the deep section of the water. With a pause, Brian would then say: 'The swimming part wasn't hard; it was getting out of the sack he had put me in that was difficult.' "
In any event, he took up competitive swimming, then switched to figure skating. In high school, he turned to athletics and set many records in track and field. He only took to the soccer field in his late teens when a touring all-star team had heard about his abilities as a natural athlete and enlisted him for a tour of Vancouver Island.
After that, he enrolled at the University of British Columbia. In 1973, an incident at a house party - a stranger slashed his throat - nearly ended everything. While he made a full recovery, he was left with a distinctive gravelly voice. He later credited the near-death experience with endowing him with an appreciation for every moment life had to offer.
A year later, he won a Canadian Interuniversity Sport Championship with the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds, graduated with a bachelor's degree in physical education and went professional by joining the Vancouver Whitecaps. Club president and former teammate Bob Lenarduzzi marvelled at Mr. BUDD's first appearance. "He came into the tryout, and I don't think I'm being nasty in suggesting this, but he didn't get by on skill," he said. "It is incredible. I have heard some accounts saying he didn't even play soccer until he was in his late teens - that in itself is incredible. He was a guy who had unbelievable fitness and drive."
At 6 foot 1 and 180 pounds, he was confident, aggressive, outgoing and enthusiastic. Not surprisingly, he was a valuable member of the Canadian national soccer team, playing a total of seven games and scoring two goals. His most satisfying shot occurred against the United States in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, in December, 1976. The game was a qualifying match to settle which of the teams would play in the 1978 World Cup and it was crucial that Canada win. As luck would have it, he scored the winning goal. It was a moment he cherished and talked about for the rest of his life.
Whitecaps owner Herb Capozzi once bet a friend $1,000 that Mr. BUDD could not run to the top of a 30-storey building in less than eight minutes. Mr. BUDD said he could do it in less than three minutes and insisted that, if he won, he and 15 Friends get a free dinner. He ran up the 30 flights in 2 minutes 39 seconds.
By 1978, he had been transferred to the Colorado Caribous, only to be bought by the Toronto Blizzard after two games.
All told, he played seven seasons as a striker in the now-defunct North American Soccer League with the Whitecaps, Caribous, Toronto Metros-Croatia, Blizzard and Houston Hurricane. He also played in the Major Indoor Soccer League with the Cleveland Force and Baltimore Blast. He had 13 goals and 11 assists in 80 North American Soccer League games and 31 goals and six assists in 36 Major Indoor Soccer League games.
Along the way, Mr. BUDD also crossed the Atlantic to test the British soccer waters and earned a place on the player roster for Ayr United, a Scottish team.
It was in the middle of his soccer career that Mr. BUDD entered ABC's Superstars competition. The idea was to have the world's top athletes from different sports compete against one another in a kind of decathlon. While requirements varied from year to year, entrants generally took part in many different events, including a 100-metre sprint, 800-metre foot race, weightlifting, rowing, cycling, swimming, a gymnastic segment and an obstacle course. They were forbidden from entering in their particular specialty event.
By all accounts, Mr. Pruitt, Mr. Seagren and the others did not see Mr. BUDD coming. He swept the field before him and set records in swimming, the 800 metres, gymnastics and other events, and came away with a pocketful of cash. It is estimated that he won $200,000 in the three years before ABC decided he was unbeatable and rewrote the rules.
The decision came as a something of a shock. As a slender, unimposing underdog from Canada he had taken on the world's best (and better known) athletes and beaten them again and again. Privately, he was said to have entertained suspicions that ABC wanted him off the show because he was relatively unknown to U.S. television viewers. To the network's credit, Kyle Rote, Jr. and Anne Henning - two subsequent winners of Superstars contests - lost their eligibility after they had each won three times.
His success turned him into something of a Canadian celebrity. During an interview with Peter Gzowski on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation-television, he shared his methodology in winning the chin-up portion of the event. "I guess it comes from being knocked down [on the soccer field] and helping yourself up again is how I got any arm strength," he said with a laugh. "Looking at Greg Pruitt - they couldn't get their arms in my pants, their arms were so big."
His techniques were anything but orthodox. Gordon SWEETZER, his Toronto Blizzard roommate, described his friend practising on a beach during a training camp in Portugal. "He used an old rowboat for conditioning and a child's playground at the hotel to do chin-ups. I asked him: Shouldn't you be doing this in a gym? But that was just his style; he just attacked everything with so much zeal. He was an unbelievable iron man."
Although born in Toronto, Mr. SWEETZER had spent most of his life in Britain and was new to Canadian customs when he returned to play for Blizzard in the mid-seventies. As both of them were young and unattached, Mr. BUDD took him under his wing. According to Globe reporter Allan ABEL, Mr. SWEETZER's problem was too much attention from female soccer fans. They had, he said, "tried to get in as much mischief as possible."
Apparently, Mr. BUDD had asked: "What's the difference between Canadian and English girls?"
"For one thing," Mr. SWEETZER replied, "There's more of 'em over here. It's the density of the population."
"How about the quality?"
"That's not too bad either."
"When you tell them you're a Blizzard, do they fall all over you?"
"Well, they recognize you," Mr. SWEETZER replied. "But I wouldn't say that they fall. That's a bit of a myth. Let's just say that they're there, and they want to get to know you. There is some work involved."
After his career on the soccer field ended in 1980, Mr. BUDD co-authored a fitness book, The Executive Guide to Fitness (1982), then entered the business world, first as a community relations director for the Blizzard and later with Molson, Labatt and Kittling Ridge Estate Wines and Spirits.
Later, he worked as a colour commentator for North American Soccer League broadcasts on Global Television and CHIN radio. He also became a regular on cable television's TheScore and the channel's English Premier League and Major League Soccer broadcasts. His success arose from his natural charisma and from a scorching sense of humour. He kept a joke journal to use at speaking engagements and during television broadcasts. After all, it had worked on the soccer field. Once, during a game against Pele and the league's star-studded New York Cosmos, the Brazilian legend congratulated him afterward: "You may not be the best soccer player I have ever played against, but you definitely are the funniest."
He soon learned that a well-placed joke would help close a deal at Labatt or for sizing up a crucial play during a soccer broadcast.
"Sometimes, his sense of humour went too far because he always seemed to test the limit of what was acceptable," said Mr. COWAN, the former CFRB broadcaster.
Once during a wedding ceremony, Mr. BUDD decided it would be fitting to wear a kilt. During the reception, and after downing a few drinks, he approached the grandmother of the bride and somehow got the notion it would be funny to pull the kilt up and over her head. Needless to say, it didn't go over well.
His charity work, however, was appreciated. Whatever organization needed his services, he would be there at the drop of a hat, said Mr. COWAN. He once flew to Jamaica as part of an effort with the Toronto Police Service to help disadvantaged children.
His charity work allowed him to forge Friendships with the likes of hockey legends Lanny McDonald and Doug Gilmour, football commentator John Madden, the cast of SCTV and the rock band The Good Brothers. He became particularly close to SCTV John Candy.
Robert Iarusci, a former national teammate of Mr. BUDD and a co-worker at Labatt, recalled a 1993 charity golf tournament in which they joined a foursome with Mr. Candy and fellow SCTV star Eugene Levy. "John Candy had just returned from filming the movie Uncle Buck and, on the golf course, BUDD and Candy just exchanged jabs all afternoon. It was hysterical. Every time John went to take a swing at the ball, BUDD would say something to distract him - it was a great afternoon and the party went well on into the early morning hours."
For all that, he said Mr. BUDD shattered the stereotype of the "dumb jock" when he underwent an aptitude test before joining Labatt in 1996. While most applicants took three hours to complete the test, he breezed through it in about half an hour, much to the astonishment of executives.
"He was always about 10 minutes ahead thinking of what the outcome of an event or situation we would have to deal with," said his wife, Brenda. "His brain just worked so fast and his thought process was just so much quicker, he just came up with solutions to complex problems."
Mr. BUDD maintained a busy pace. Over the years, he devised such things as electronic media-oriented fitness programs, took computer courses, played soccer for an amateur team, took up skydiving and scuba diving, as well as squash. He also swam 1.5 kilometres a day and talked a mile a minute. "I never sleep," he told The Globe and Mail in 1985. "I was never particularly gifted as a soccer player but was always under severe pressure because I won the Superstars. Really, I'm built like an olive on sticks."
Brian BUDD was born on April 8, 1952, in Toronto. He died in hospital on June 11, 2008, after suffering a heart attack at home. He was 56. He is survived by his wife, Brenda; son Riley, 8; and daughter Bridgette, 6. He also leaves his mother, Bertha, and sisters Barbara, Sonya and Lisa.
On June 14, a rowdy, sellout crowd observed a moment of silence at the 20,000-seat BMO Field in Toronto before a game between Toronto FC and Colorado Rapids.

There's a special garden
Where the trees of memory grow
Nurtured by the kindness
And concern that good Friends show.
The roots are cherished memories
Of good times in the past
The branches tender promises
That souls endure and last.
It's a place of beauty
Where bright new hopes can start
It's memory's lovely garden

Police hunt doctor's killer
Woodstock native Henry Janssen was found shot dead in his truck near Lion's Head.
By Patrick MALONEY, Sun Media, Fri., January 25, 2008
A longtime Woodstock doctor whose body was found in his truck along an isolated road in Bruce County was shot to death, police confirmed last night, sparking the hunt for a killer.
Dr. Henry JANSSEN, a Woodstock native who practised family medicine in Ingersoll and in his hometown for years before moving to Bruce County, was found in the parked truck Tuesday night, not far from the small Lion's head hospital he helped run.
"I don't know why anybody would want to do this," said Herman JANSSEN, his brother.
"It's like we're… living in a movie."
Police describe the site where the 57-year-old family doctor was found -- Scenic Caves Road in Northern Bruce Peninsula -- as a "quiet, isolated rural area."
An autopsy in London yesterday confirmed a gunshot wound as the cause of death, Bruce Ontario Provincial Police said.
Investigators were saying little, but had been handing out notices to drivers passing through, asking to speak with anyone who saw parked cars or pedestrians in the area between noon and 9 p.m. Tuesday.
Last night, police said they believe "community safety is not an associated concern," suggesting that JANSSEN may not have been a random victim.
One of 10 children, JANSSEN was a star football player at Woodstock Collegiate Institute and played tight end for the University of Western Ontario Mustangs in 1972 and '73. In 1974, he was drafted third overall in the Canadian Football League draft, by Calgary.
In a Free Press interview shortly after the draft, JANSSEN said he was interested in going to medical school.
A brother, Hans, spent 26 years as the London Catholic school board's recreation supervisor. He died of cancer in 2004 and the board's track championship was named in his honour.
For the last five years, JANSSEN treated patients on the Bruce Peninsula and most recently served as site chief for small hospitals in Lion's head and Tobermory, both part of Grey Bruce Health Services.
His colleagues expressed shock at his death and support for his wife, Lynn, and children, Rebecca and David.
"To say it will be difficult to move forward without him is an understatement," Doctor Ken PRITCHARD said in a statement. "We will carry on his good work as he would want us to do, but our world will never be quite the same without him."
Members of the small community were stunned by the death.
"It's a tragedy," said Helen WESTOVER, a teacher. "He was a wonderful guy."
Former patients from around Oxford County were stunned at the news of JANSSEN's death.
Coyla Jean REEVES and her family were longtime patients of JANSSEN.
"He was an altogether likable fellow," she said. "If you wanted to joke with him, you could. He had a sense of humour."
Anyone with information is asked to contact Bruce Ontario Provincial Police at 519-534-1323 or through the Ontario Provincial Police communications centre, 1-888-310-1122.

They want to 'win for her'
The midget girls squad, which lost a coach in a car crash, wants to play in the championship.
By Patrick MALONEY, Sun Media, Wed., April 2, 2008
The death of an Oxford County hockey coach has stunned her players, but it's unlikely to stop them.
Members of the Embro Edge midget girls squad, reeling from the death of assistant coach Carolyn PIETT, 23, in a crash Monday, were to decide last night whether they would play in this weekend's league championship in Vaughan.
"The girls want to go and win for her," said Michelle CRANDALL, who has a daughter on the team and two other children who grew up with PIETT.
"They said Carolyn would want them to play."
PIETT, of Embro, was killed on her way to work at Autodata Solutions in London when her car collided with a transport truck north of Thamesford at 8 a.m. Monday. The truck driver, Lloyd DEVEAU of Midland, wasn't hurt.
Several Friends yesterday remembered PIETT, who coached the team with her father, Ron, as a fun-loving person who was always happy.
"Always had a smile on her face," said teammate Leanne RENKEMA, 18. "She could be angry and she would have a smile on her face."
The loss has been tough for the small community where PIETT grew up with three sisters. CRANDALL knew the athletic, outgoing woman since PIETT was in kindergarten.
"You knew if she was in the room -- she was just that type," CRANDALL said last night.
PIETT's car was crushed by the transport truck at Oxford County Road 119 and Zorra Road 74, an intersection controlled by stop signs for east-west traffic.
The car was hit on the passenger side and pushed into the west ditch south of the intersection. Police closed the roads for about five hours while wreckage was cleared.
Although it was raining at the time of the collision, weather isn't believed to be a factor, police said.
Visitation is slated for tomorrow from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Longworth Funeral Home in Woodstock. A funeral will be held at 11 a.m. Friday at Knox United Church in Embro.

Beloved poet, prof, playwright 'an artistic giant'
James REANEY, 1926-2008
By Katherina DEHAAS and Patrick MALONEY, Sun Media, Thurs., June 12, James REANEY, a national literary icon who stayed close to his Southwestern Ontario roots during a celebrated, 50-year career as a playwright, poet and professor, has died.
The longtime Londoner died last night in London following a long illness. He was 81.
"It was a peaceful end to a great life," his son, Free Press journalist James REANEY, said. "We know that he will be remembered and his contributions to Canadian culture will be valued."
Born on a Stratford-area farm in 1926, REANEY was an acclaimed poet, playwright, author, opera librettist and University of Western Ontario English professor.
He won three Governor-General's Awards for poetry and drama, and a 1974 Chalmers Award for best Canadian play.
"He was so great," said Nancy POOLE, a former Museum London director who met REANEY at University of Western Ontario.
"He was a gentleman, an intellectual, an artistic giant in the Canadian scene."
REANEY won his first Governor-General's Award in 1949 at age 23 for a collection of poetry, The Red Heart.
In 1960, he began teaching at University of Western Ontario and started publishing Alphabet, a semi-annual periodical devoted "to the iconography of the imagination."
In 1966, he founded the Listener's Workshop and began working with child and adult actors in choral ensemble works. REANEY, whose play Colours in the Dark premiered in Stratford in 1967, received the Order of Canada in 1975.
His best known dramatic work may be a trilogy of plays about the 1880 massacre of the Donnelly family in Lucan.
He was 10 when his stepfather told him the stirring story, stoking in REANEY an interest that would lead him to write the three plays that not only dramatized the legend, but arguably also brought it into focus historically.
The trilogy is among a handful of Canadian works listed among the 1,000 most significant plays of all time by the Oxford Dictionary of Plays.
He was also an amateur painter and pianist whose works were exhibited in London and Toronto.
REANEY enjoyed such respect that even small details of his life inspired artisans, says Martha HENRY, former Grand Theatre artistic director.
HENRY, who acted in two REANEY plays, recalled a tour last summer of his boyhood home.
"It was amazing," she said. "We went up into the attic where he used to write. He's an icon. A complete original."
REANEY is survived by his wife, son and daughter, two granddaughters and two siblings.
