When we discovered that UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre is a wine lover, we knew we had to meet him. We were certainly impressed! The opportunity arose recently when we were invited to attend the world premiere of "The Striking Truth" an exclusive documentary for charismatic Ultimate Fighting Champion Georges St-Pierre and dynamic MMA fighter David "The Crow" Loiseau. The movie follows the two fighters over the past four years, starting with UFC 58 USA vs. Canada where Loiseau was fighting for the championship against Rich Franklin and St-Pierre was the co-main event against BJ Penn. The film juxtaposes their two careers with St-Pierre's meteoric rise to UFC champion and Loiseau facing personal challenges, charting their respective ups and downs as they follow their paths. The Striking Truth includes exclusive, never-before-seen footage of all that took place behind the scenes. The Project is directed by Steven J. Wong and is executive produced by James Hergott with action directing by Bobby Razak. What an amazing night! Check out our The Wine ladies TV episodes One Sip At A Time.

Wayne Gretzky Foundation Creed; Put Every Kid in the Game
Perhaps the most famous coaching advice in all of hockey came from Walter Gretzky. He told his son not to focus on where the puck is, but where the puck is going. That's good advice for life too. The puck is going to our kids. Our future. Hockey is our game. It promotes fitness and personal development. That's why the Wayne Gretzky Foundation is focused on putting hockey and well being within every kid's reach. It's not just about equipping kids for hockey. It's about equipping kids for life. You're guaranteed to miss one hundred percent of the shots you don't take. Every kid deserves a shot. Let's put every kid in the game.
