With a golden retriever named Zeus crouching behind the net, Denver Outlaws goalie Trevor Tierney pounces in front of 90 mph shots fired by the dog’s master, Jim Beardmore. … While Bud will commute from Maryland, Jim is unpacking in Denver with his constant companion, Zeus, who has transferred his mountain rescue skills to the lacrosse field, where he can fetch lacrosse sticks and open ball bags.
Said Outlaws general manager Brian Reese, “The dog is better behaved than Jim sometimes.”
