Charlie Connelly // Manager of Corporate Partnerships & Fulfillment

1. Where are you from?
Riverside, Illinois

2. Where did you go to college? What is your degree in?
I have my BA in Advertising & Management from Columbia College Chicago

3. What is your position at the Admirals and how long have you been with the Milwaukee Admirals?
I am the Manager of Corporate Partnerships & Fulfillment and have been with the team since August of 2023.

4. Is cereal soup? Why or why not?
Cereal is not soup! Milk isn’t broth, it’s that simple!

5. How long do you think you’d survive a zombie apocalypse? Explain?
I’d pretend to be one of them, so it depends on how quickly they’d be able to see through my act. I’d like to think that can hold them off for a few hours?

6. Do you think penguins have knees? Why or why not?
They don’t have knees. Have you ever seen a penguin squat?

7. What do you want to be remembered for?
Being kind, open, and curious. I want my friends and family to always know I’m there for them and would do anything to support their goals and dreams.

8. Which species would be the rudest if all animals could talk?
Scorpions. I don’t think they have any sympathy for anyone who comes in their way.

9. What color would you like if you had to eat a crayon straight from the box and why?
Can I pick a scented marker? I think that might help it go down smoother. Light blue? I can pretend it’s cotton candy flavored?

10. What’s the worst tagline you can think of for a wart removal cream company?
Dermatologists have spoken! 1% of them approved!

11. What would you do if you could replace all of the grass on the planet with something else, and why?
I’d replace grass with cotton candy. It’d be cool to be in a Dr. Suess story anytime you’re outside!

12. If you could be in any movie, what would it be and why?
Back to the Future. Who wouldn’t want to be time travelling buddies with Christpher Lloyd?

13. What superhero/villain would make the best therapist and why?
Professor X for sure. He can read minds, so I think he’d be able to crack me pretty quickly and get down to some real business.

14. What is the weirdest thing you have eaten and did you enjoy it?
Rocky Mountain Oysters, aka bull testicles, have to be up there. They came out deep fried and I learned what they were after having a few. They’re not bad, just chewy and tough. I’d give them another go, why not?

15. Would you rather walk around with a salad for a head or broccoli for arms and why?
Broccoli for arms. I wouldn’t want to be sweating out salad dressing on the regular.

16. What Guinness Book of World Records record would you like to break?
Most rock skips on open water. That’d have to get me on ESPN8 right?

17. If you played hockey, what would your goal song be?
The intro riff to Money for Nothing by Dire Straits. Just that riff on loop would work.

18. What is one completely useless thing that you can spend hours doing?
Sitting around a table with my brothers naming old baseball rosters. There’s nothing more fun than remembering a random baseball player who’s been retired 15+ years and seeing who can grab the most random name from their memory.
