That whole squirmy Wayne Twitch-hell appearance of his is quite disconcerting. Then he opens his mouth.
Williams had worked for a couple casinos, MGM and Trump, in Atlantic City, N.J. He had tended his 3 & 2 ranch in Texas, then moved to New Jersey, where he managed a bowling alley and bar. Williams sold a hot sauce of his own creation, Wild Thing Southpaw Salsa. He was pitching coach and manager for the Atlantic City Surf of the independent Atlantic League.
That all changed when Williams was asked to make a one-time appearance on “Daily News Live,” a local sports talk show on Comcast SportsNet.
“And when I walked out after the show, they offered me the full-time pre- and postgame job there in Philly. Just like that,” the 48-year-old said.
...Maybe getting that first chance to show what he could do in the air was a break, but Williams also was prepared to take advantage of it. And he may not be done yet. Williams’ latest project is shopping a television show called “Big City, Big Country.”
“The pilot came out good. It was comical,” he said. “It’s where me and my buddy from Texas go into big cities and basically tell the people of that city what their town used to be like when it was country and was a rural area. And basically how we do things in the country as opposed to how they do them in the city.”
