Brian Budd was a jovial, multi-talented athlete and ex-professional soccer
player who wowed the world when he beat America's best in the 1970s-80s
World Superstars competitions.
He was found dead late Wednesday after collapsing at his Toronto home.
No cause of death has been released.
Budd, a forward for seven seasons with the now defunct North American
Soccer League, later became a soccer sportscaster.
'Superstar' Brian Budd dead at 56
What are your memories of Brian Budd?
This banned anyone winning the competition 3 consecutive years from entering a fourth time. Brian Budd embarrassed all the American athletes by kicking their collective butts!
