Great story from Cameron Hughes’ new book KING OF CHEER. Ten years ago the Knicks decided his act needed to add a blue Santa suit for the holidays…and Cameron obliged.
The book is full of stories like this from Cameron’s crazy 25 plus years standing up and spreading joy to fans.
Great holiday gift for anyone in game ops, any one who has seen him live and anyone who needs encouragement to take a chance on themselves.
Cameron is also a frequent quest on the podcast. Check it out if you want to hear more from this Canadian National Treasure.

“…the Knicks ent dept came up this crazy idea to have me wear a Blue Santa suit to the always-famous Xmas Day game at MSG. It seemed like a genius idea at the time, but I didn’t hear from him for a while. Then I get a note saying: “Blue Santa suit is in..see you 25th!”So fun!🎅🏻 pic.twitter.com/CDYZIua1gQ
