Fair Lawn's Weiss Wins Harley Davidson

April 3, 2002 - National Lacrosse League (NLL) - New Jersey Storm News Release

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ – When Lou Weiss received a message in late March stating that he was a finalist to win a new Harley Davidson, he thought it was one of his friends playing a practical joke. Weiss returned the call anyway and on March 23, during the New Jersey Storm lacrosse team’s final home game of the year, his number was drawn. The rest is motorcycling history.

Weiss, a Fair Lawn, NJ native, purchased four season tickets to the eight New Jersey Storm home games at Continental Airlines Arena this year. Never a big lacrosse fan, Lou and his friends fell in love with the sport and the team. “I bring many of my clients there and have been converting them to lacrosse fans,” Weiss said, “It’s fantastic, I love it.” Weiss is a Vice President and partner in Morgan Electric, Inc., which is based in Pine Brook, NJ.

As for the contest, Weiss was dazed upon being named the winner on the Arena floor. “It was incredible. I was in shock that I won,” he explained. “I had never won anything like that before. I couldn’t see my number at first because of all the lights and the excitement.”

The new 2002 Harley Davidson was provided by Williams Harley Davidson of Lebanon, NJ, as part of the Storm’s Fan Appreciation Night. Fans filled out entry cards all season in an attempt to win. Three finalists were selected randomly prior to the March 23 event. Those three numbers were then put into a hat and Weiss’ was pulled randomly at halftime of the Storm game versus the Columbus Landsharks. The Storm won that night and finished the season strongly winning four of their final six contests.

“This should help my mid-life crisis. My wife got her car and now I’ve got my bike,” Weiss laughed. Ride on, Lou, ride on.
