Comedy Night 12

March 10, 2023
Holy smokes, what a day 3/8/23 was!! Gettin’ up early, hittin’ the hay late and filling every second with everything I’ve got! This year’s “Stand Up for Dawg Nation” event was even more than anticipated. Lowsey crushed it, Parks crushed it, the comics crushed it, but seeing Smokey smile with a tear in his eye, was truly the icing on the cake for me! Thank you to everyone that attended last nigh…

Hockey Heals goes Big!!!

March 9, 2023
It was already going to be a big day with our “Stand Up For Dawg Nation” event tonight. But being a gluten for punishment I decided to pull out all the stops and blow away our Hockey Heals crew this morning! I surprised the gang with new Hockey Heals jerseys, but that was only the tip of the iceberg. Joining us on the ice was hockey legend Milan Hejduk, current Av Logan O’Connor and USA sled …

Wayne “Smokey” Flemming

March 9, 2023
Comedy Night to celebrate an AVS legend This year’s comedy night was a massive success and featured some big time personalities, big time stories, and big time friendships.  Former tough-guys, Scott Parker and Reed Low took the stage for one final hilarious (verbal) brawl, to raise some money for charity.  Unknown to Smokey, Parks had made the trip down from his mountain home to celebrate a hi…

All class: Sakic, Landy, and Hertl!

March 8, 2023
It was quite a morning as I gathered auction items for tomorrow’s “Stand Up for Dawg Nation”. Stepping up today were San Jose Sharks star Tomas Hertl, Avs president Super Joe Sakic and Avs captain Gabe Landeskog! All three spent time signing several items and spending time catching up on life. I am incredibly blessed to have folks like these in my life that continually step up to help me help …

New Addition to the Top Dawgs

February 24, 2023
There were many highlights from last weekend, but perhaps the most unexpected was witnessing Minnesota Wild legend Mikko Koivu becoming a Dawg! Thanks to Tommy Powers, we were able to add Mikko to our Top Dawg roster and I was just hoping we’d get Mikko to participate in a game or two. Well did I ever underestimate the big Finn. Mikko wowed us all with his talent on the ice, but blew us away wi…

Braving the Storm

February 22, 2023
Wednesday began with plans for a full day in my office to catch up after a long five days running a MN pond tourney. But instead woke up to yet another Colorado foothills snowstorm and an important message. As I was clearing the white stuff I received a text that Sarah Karr was at our Hockey Heals skate. Well so much for best laid plans! Sarah is in the fight for her life against pancreatic can…

Celebrating Ethan

February 19, 2023
One of my favorite parts of being the Dawg Father is the opportunity to combine the talents of others produce amazing results. And that’s exactly what happened this weekend. I met the extremely talented George Canyon last spring and that fast friendship resulted in an amazing song that George wrote for Dawg Nation. Brad Stabio has been a Dawg from day one and is an incredibly talented writer,…

Final Flood

February 17, 2023
Pretty wiped out and ready for a cold one, but no rest for the weary…….yet! Rinks are done and looking amazing. Now it’s prep time for a big night ahead. Pretty special to spend the day with my brother, my big Czech friend, and Robbie O’s amazing son. Just when I was at wits end a gentleman pulled in with his wife. I told him about Dawg Nation and also about Ethan’s story. He l…

Home for three days and off again! This time to Minnesota to host a pond hockey tourney to raise money for Ethan Glynn and his family. Ethan was tragically paralyzed on September 2nd and is facing a challenging life without movement below his shoulders. It’s a very important event, but I’m nervous as I may have bit off a little more than I can chew! Running a charity event from 1,100 miles aw…

2023 Pondy on Prior Recap

February 15, 2023
2023 Recap- Pondy on Prior It was a really big lift, but we pulled it off! Running a pond hockey tournament 1,000 miles from home is a daunting task, and after having roadblock after roadblock stand in our way, nobody would have blamed us for tapping out. But that’s not the Dawg way! Our Pondy on Prior event culminated with rave reviews and allowed us to hand out a check for $81,000 to Ethan G…

The Quilt

February 14, 2023
Prior to my epic birthday trip to Saskatchewan, I reached out to Dave Chamberlin to join me and Cindy on our journey to the north. We felt compelled as Dave had lost the love of his life, Karen, to pancreatic cancer just one month before. We knew Dave was hurting and felt it would be good to surround our friend with love. As we wrapped up our memorable two days in Saskatchewan we were jo…
