Hot Rod Wilmont Article

(Old Hot Rod)

Ben Smith has an article in today's Journal Gazette where he interviewed Rod Wilmont. It touches on Wilmont's return to the Ants after playing for us in the inaugural season. It also touches on Rod's sense of humour which was put on display yesterday here in the office. Rod called in to the office to talk to Sarah (Vice President-Administration). Sarah did not recognize the number/caller and asked "I am sorry who is this?" Rod's response "Hot Rod". For some reason I found this to be hilarious, and I hope this nickname can stick the rest of the year.

(New Hot Rod)
Remember to bring a new unwrapped toy to Saturday night's game (tomorrow!) to donate to Fort Wayne Toys for Tots. The first 250 fans who bring a toy will receive a Mad Ants mini-basketball in return thanks to Thrivent Financial for Lutherans.

Saturday will also see the return of David Bailey and the Sioux Falls Skyforce. Bailey is a guy who fans love to hate, and loved to see play when he briefly was a Mad Ant last season.

Don't forget we have a game on Sunday at 5pm as well! See you there.


  1. Can we create some type of Piper's Pit that we can set up at halftime of games? Here are some suggestions for Rod's show:

    Rod's Rap
    Wilmont's Waxing Philospical
    Hot Rod's Halftime Interview Show

    Well, those are my suggestions. Let's see if you can come up with better!

  2. We always called Rod "Hot Rod" down here in Bloomington! You guys are behind the times up there in Fort Wayne!
