Gongshow Gear’s “The Generation Y CEO" blog

Author: Former junior hockey player, still a hockey player, now Gongshow Gear Inc. co-founder and CEO Ger McNamee.

Basically, McNamee is a Mark Zuckerberg in the hockey community.

Premise: A blog geared toward Generation Y (people born in the 80’s and 90’s), giving advice about entrepreneurship and achieving a better work/life balance.

Background: A little known fact outside the hockey community: hockey players lead a distinct lifestyle no matter what level they’re playing. According to, McNamee and two of his Central Junior “A” Hockey League teammates came up with the idea, one night in a bar, to make buckets – hats – sporting GONGSHOW HOCKEY for themselves and their other teammates.

Eventually, word spread through the hockey community. For the last 10 years McNamee and his staff, based in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, have been creating hats, sweatshirts, flip-flops, ties, water bottles and anything else its brethren asks for to spread the “Gongshow Lifestyle.”

Gongshow Gear Inc. has retail outlets in 16 countries, including its motherland Canada, and is the biggest hockey apparel company in the world.
