Living the life I do allows me to meet some pretty remarkable people. Drew Garza, Josh Schneider and Adam Young are three of those. All three are visually impaired, and all three don’t let a disability define them. Despite being legally blind this trio are all huge hockey fans and all really good hockey players! Their hard work and dedication has paid off as Drew, Josh and Adam will now …

Old Friends New Coincidences

November 14, 2022
Caught the first period of the Avs game before slipping out of Ball Arena for a little beer league action. But during that short stint my heart was warmed as I noticed the “not so little” Jack Rodell on the big screen. Jack was being honored as the “Av for a Day”, a pretty cool program that creates amazing memories for deserving kids. I met this little stud at the Edge Ice Arena in 2019 as he w…

Hockey Fiights Cancer Night

November 12, 2022
It was quite a night at Ball Arena as I joined Gina Finney on Hockey Fights Cancer night. I met the Finney’s almost three years ago as Gina’s husband, Andy, was battling pancreatic cancer. Andy sadly lost that battle on December 31, 2020, and tonight we celebrated Andy while urging so many others to keep up the fight. One of those was Sarah Karr, who I had the immense pleasure of nominating t…

Thank you for your service

Veterans Day is a day to simply say “thank you”! Thank you to all the men and women that have sacrificed so much for all of us. I am fortunate to have the honor to be continually placed before many of these heros, each with their unique and equally heroic journey that has helped shape the path of the world. Here’s to you on your day! God Bless!  

What a Wenesday

November 9, 2022
I’m fully aware that I lead a very blessed life, but today may of taken the cake. Hockey in the am, followed by a visit to my office from Avs head man Jared Bednar, who just happened to drop off a ton of signed items. Then downtown to spend time with Matt Duchene, who shared that he’s donating $100 to Dawg Nation for every goal he scores this season! Next was the Colorado Eagles game in Lovelan…

Rmembering a Friend

November 8, 2022
Like so many of you, I am still reeling from the loss of a pillar in our hockey community. I’ve thought about Peter quite a bit over the last few days. As I relaxed in front of the fire, sifting through countless pictures and memories, it occurred to me that Maxy literally knew my entire family. From Cindy, to all three of my girls, to my brother, to my son in law, to my parents, and even…

Rest easy Maxy

November 6, 2022
It’s a really difficult day as the hockey world has lost a legend. Peter McNab ALWAYS made time for others and truly was one of the very best people I’ve ever met. My memories with Peter are vast, for that I am eternally grateful. I’m also incredibly thankful that the family reached out to me last week and blessed me with one last visit with my buddy. Peter was weak and his words soft, but his …

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. One of those was with Paul “Biz Nasty” Bissonnette!! Go Avs!!
