Georgia hockey team markets Winnipeg goalie’s ‘Wobble’

WINNIPEG – A Winnipeg hockey player has won Internet fame with his rendition – in full goalie gear – of a popular southern dance called The Wobble.

Now the Columbus Cottonmouths, his Georgia hockey team, is marketing the goalie’s dancing prowess.

The Columbus Cottonmouths are selling a new T-shirt with Loewen’s name and Number 1 on the back and the words “Wobble baby” on the front with the Cottonmouths’ logo.

Someone in the front office decided to make the T-shirt and it’s been “selling like hotcakes,” Loewen said Thursday.

“It’s fun. It really is fun,” Loewen said about the fame he’s gained since a video of him dancing with cheerleaders during second intermission went viral. The YouTube video now has more than 800,000 views.

“Enjoy the 13 minutes of fame,” Loewen said with a laugh.

While he’s happy to give the team’s fans some fun and make a little money for the Southern Professional Hockey League franchise, he’s trying to stay focused on the playoffs, he added.

They lost their first game of a three-game series against the Peoria Rivermen 2-0 and they’ve got to focus on winning the next two, he said.

“I don’t want it to become a distraction.”
