I never felt endangered...except for most of the time.
Yesterday was one of my favorite days of the year...the Colorado Avalanche annual fashion show/brunch.
The players are such great hosts, but the kids are really something special!
Thanks to these families...the Avs...everyone who came out...and my co-MC, Lauren Gardner....
If you’ve never been, hopefully you can make it next year!
Sad news - we lost an old friend...
When I first came to Colorado, I went straight to my new job, and when I walked into the Channel 9 sports office I was greeted by what would become that very familiar big smile of Gary Cruz.
I was so lucky in my early career to get to work with, and learn from Cruzzer, Mike Nolan, and so many more. Gary showed me the ropes in Denver, taught me, scolded me...and was a friend....
I think that Gary is to blame for my addiction to golf. I didn’t really play before I moved to Colorado, but he helped teach me the game.
It was always nice to go somewhere with him...he was extremely popular, and seemed to know everybody.
He loved his family very much, and was passionate about his work. He was a very special guy. I was lucky to know him, and Colorado was lucky to have him.
At 3:58 AM we lost an incredible person, my father Gary Cruz. It is incredible how many people he met and held strong relationships through his years. As a Fath...er he was the greatest. He was my best friend, brother, mentor, and a perfect Dad. I'm gonna miss him so much. It's peaceful that he is not fighting or hurting anymore. He truly loved all his friends and family and lived his life more than so many could dream about.
