Since I started at WRIF, the Red Wings have won four Stanley Cups. Coincidence….I think not!
In all seriousness, I could write a book of all the great times and people I’ve met, not only through my hockey, but through my kid’s hockey as well. I often tell people that coaching my daughter’s hockey team may be one of the most rewarding things I’ve done as a parent. It gave me much more than I ever thought it would.
I had the chance to play with the NHL guys three days a week during the 04/05 lockout. Man, what great memories to be able to play with legends.
Funny enough, Darren McCarty is one of my oldest friends in Detroit. I met him one late night at the radio station…long story.
Here’s just a few pictures of my time on ice……….(w/ Igor Larionov..w/ Dino Ciccarelli & Joey Kocur..w/ Brent Fedyk, Eddie Mio and Dani Probert..w/ Steve Yzerman..w/ Dave Wellington at the Dave Coulier charity game..w/ Darren McCarty and Robbie Merrill from Godsmack)
Oh, and who could forget February 5th, 2005 when I played a pro game for the Motor City Mechanics. Ok, “played” might be a little bit of a stretch. I started the game. Lots of memories from that night.
