The platform is ready for YOU. What do you want to hear?

    "Whatever you put into is what you're gonna get out of it... Just because you got a kidney transplant doesn't mean you need to stop living your life. Just keep on trucking."

    This goes far beyond hockey. Long before the night that is cemented in sports history, Dave has impacted lives. From growing up in a small town, to being in the Hockey Hall of Fame, Dave shares with us what got him to this point today. Along with the art of hockey "chirping" amongst other things in this episode, Dave brings such a positive insight on everything he comes into contact with.

    Pitter patter, here's the episode.

    “I’m sitting there, shy and fidgety like I normally am, then she said ‘You’d get up there, walk up to the podium, you’d fix your suit jacket, and as soon as you did that it was like there was a different person up there.’”

    Programming by day, announcing for tens of thousands by night, Wade has developed an incredible balance that satisfies all aspects of his life. From performing improv, to being the PA Announcer for the Carolina Hurricanes, Wade enjoys the mic and is clearly meant for it.

    "I realized at a pretty early age I was not put on this earth to be a professional athlete ... so I started to research ways that I could be as close to the fire."

    Growing up in a family who admired all aspect of sports, Pace knew he had to be involved with it as his job whatever the costs. After starting as an intern with the Carolina Hurricanes, Pace found his way accepting a job with the Washington Capitals where his southern hospitality earned him 10 minutes late to his first big meeting and a table full of cold biscuits that no one wanted. Things smoothed out and he found his way back in Raleigh working for the team he's always loved. Stories from relationships with players, heartache from missing out on a Stanley Cup, to the ultimate sports story with Dave Ayers, Pace is right in on the action and is here to tell us.

    Switzerland => Charlotte => Chicago => etc... etc...

    Since coming to the states and playing for Charlotte, Giussi helped create a culture for Charlotte Men's Soccer that has continued to this day. From being a NCAA Freshman of the Year, to being in the MLS, to playing overseas, Giusseppe has kept his values the same, and with that, has created quite a colorful career that has so much more left in the tank.

    "I always worried I'd get too old for it... I still get just as excited opening the box as I did at Christmas in middle school."
    Husband, father, lover of sneakers. Before the explosion of this new "sneaker culture", Andy had a passion for the world of sneakers. Initially only being able to use message boards and AIM to communicate with others, the culture has changed, but the passion is just as strong.
