    CEDAR RAPIDS — In the opening game of the postseason, the stage may have been a little bigger and the stakes a little higher, but one thing didn’t change Wednesday night for the Quad-Cities River Bandits.

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. — In 2021, Terry Mohajir and his wife Julie had family in town at their Orlando home, with plans to attend the Coke Zero Sugar 400 at nearby Daytona, when a telephone call disrupted their plans.

    DURHAM, N.C. — In March 1980, in his introductory press conference as the men’s basketball head coach at Duke, a 33-year-old Mike Krzyzewski was asked by a reporter to confirm the spelling of his last name.

For Jason Kelce, that sight — hordes of people waiting to see him tend bar at his fundraiser for the Eagles Autism Foundation — would have felt like a dream a decade ago when he first stumbled into the Shore bar.

Bedard is a highly skilled offensive forward who's drawn comparisons to Connor McDavid and Sidney Crosby. Bedard is the second No. 1 pick in Blackhawks history.
