Welcome to Bill Bruce
"The Meanest Man in Sports"

Bill Bruce, the so-called “Meanest Man in Sports” by local columnists, was the Master of Ceremonies at the Miami Touchdown Club during the 1960's through the '90's. He was at the podium the night Joe Willie told the incredulous fans to ‘bet the house’ on the Jets in Super Bowl III. Bill worked the courtside PA microphone for the University of Miami basketball team (remember Rick Barry!) and also the ABA Miami Floridians. In his nights presiding at the head table, he ‘roasted’ Danny Thomas and Joe Robbie, Coach Shula, the great Griese, Zonk and Kiick, as well as “FAME” Award winners Johnny Unitas, Archie Manning, Terry Bradshaw, Archie Griffin, and on and on.
