Mammoth and Hockey Heals Fight Cancer

February 3, 2023
What a night at Ball Arena as Rick and Riley Alire generously hosted our “Hockey Heals” group as we celebrated the amazing life of Catherine Alire. Eight years ago, Catherine was battling breast and esophageal cancer and was told she only had weeks to live. The diagnosis was not acceptable to this beautiful soul and she showed the world that it was not her time. When I asked Cathy how she def…

The Decision to Make a Difference

January 31, 2023
Today marks five years to the day that I made the biggest (and best) career decision of my life. After 24 years with the same company I chose to step away from very lucrative and safe corporate position to follow my heart and dreams. Looking back, my life actually changed forever in April 2010 when my good friend Jack Kelly left us to be in a better place. A week later at #21’s emotional servic…

Day 2 Weather Forecast: Questionable

January 27, 2023
Not quite the day 2 we had planned as we were met with snow, ice, closed roads, poor travel decisions, questionable singing, bad jokes and a whole lot of team building!! We kicked off at 9:00 am this morning and planned on arriving in Aspen by 1 pm. Well it’s almost 6 pm and we’re still nearly 3 hours from our destination! Definitely throws a monkey wrench into our best laid plans, but everyone…

DAWG Nation Heads North

Hanging in Minnesota with my man Ethan! I’m up here in the “Land of 10,000 Lakes” working on pulling off a benefit pond hockey tournament for this really special kid. Ethan’s life forever changed on September 2nd when a routine tackle in his first ever high school football game turned into the Glynn family’s worst nightmare. On that fateful day Ethan broke his neck and is now paralyzed from t…
