Uncle Cappy

November 6, 2022
Over the last ten years I’ve had the extreme pleasure of watching Marek & David Hejduk grow into fine young men. These gifted twins have had many milestones and one of the biggest occurred last night in Boston as Marek tallied is first ever NCAA goal! With his parents (Milan and Zlata) in attendance, the Harvard freshman netted a highlight reel shorthanded goal to put the Crimson up 3-0 ove…

Coach and the Campus Lounge

November 3, 2022
What a roller coaster day. The afternoon began with a call that rocked me to the core as I learned yet another close friend was nearing the end. I dropped everything and headed to the hospital for a difficult farewell to a very kind soul. From there it the Campus Lounge to be part of the ”Coach’s Show With David Carle”. During my portion of the show I did my best to pay tribute to Rob Ha…

History is made

Special night at Ball Arena as the Avs raised the Stanley Cup champion banner! It was also ”date night with Cappy” with Dawg Bowl raffle winner Zac Neumayr as he joined me for a great night that included a few stops along the the way.

Uncork for a Cause

October 10, 2022
Capping off a super busy weekend with Gabe Landeskog’s “Uncork for a Cause” event at the Brown Palace. With proceeds going to “Together for Change”, a terrific organization that focuses on anti bullying, something Gabe has been a part of since his youth. It was also terrific to spend much of evening with my good friend Peter Wallen, who also happens to be Landy’s agent. And spending…

Bucket List

October 6, 2022
A well deserved day off for the coach! Right after last night’s game we headed to the beautiful Park Range Ranch for a little relaxation and an antelope hunt. For me it was a 1/2 work day with an incredible back drop, and for Bedsey it was a bucket list item filled! At the same time it was yet another Dawg Nation contribution for the next family up! Cheers to all of you and best of …

Keep on Fighting Quincy!!!

September 26, 2022
Thanks to the incredible generosity of the Colorado Avalanche, Michael Lallier, Josh Suter and Keith Frankl, I was able to host nearly 50 people to last night’s Avalanche preseason game! There were lots of friendly faces but the night truly belonged to Quincy Rohrbach! Stage four bone cancer may have slowed this little dynamo down a tad, but it certainly hasn’t squelched her desire to live life…

No Coincidences

September 25, 2022
Rob Hamblin was a humble and private man. He was also a talented musician, gifted hockey player, and a friend to many. Two years ago Rob was diagnosed with brain cancer and fought hard and valiantly, finally saying goodbye on September 4th. Although I didn’t know Rob well he still chose Dawg Nation to honor in his name, this is something that always humbles me to the core. Now the ”no coincid…

Hangin’ with her Heroes

September 24, 2022
A couple of months ago Quincy Rohrbach had graduated Ponderosa High School and was excited to start the next chapter of her life at the University of Wyoming. That’s when an intense pain in her shoulder sent her in for a checkup. This beautiful 19 year old dynamo and her family were rocked to the core when the diagnosis of bone cancer was shared by the doctors. It’s not been as easy summer for …

Well today I got to sprinkle a little ”Cappy Magic” on my own brother(Nigel)! A call from UCHealth last week got the wheels turning as they shared the Cup would be at the hospital and asked me if I had a cool story to share. And boy did I have the story! Help…

Today was another difficult one as we gathered in New Prague, Minnesota to share stories of a very special man.
