It was after midnight at Muldoon's Irish Pub, but the crowd had no intention of hitting the road. As Friday night turned to Saturday morning, customers packed the Newport Beach restaurant and bar in the hopes of seeing one man — and one tall, glistening silver trophy. The anticipation ended when Anaheim Ducks defenseman Chris Pronger arrived with the Stanley Cup, having gained possession of his team's trophy for 24 hours. Muldoon's staff members placed the 3-foot cup on top of one of the tables and roped it off, while Ducks fans peered in for a look at the oldest championship prize in professional sports.

Henry Samueli is known as a shrewd businessman. His Broadcom semiconductor empire is a prime example of his ability to take something from nothing and make billions of dollars. And when the Newport Beach businessman purchased the Mighty Ducks NHL hockey franchise from the Disney Co. in 2005, many local observers felt it was just a matter of time before that Samueli Midas touch extended to the icy confines of the Honda Center, which he also owns. Sure enough it did, and the Anaheim Ducks are Stanley Cup champions — the first time in the modern era that a NHL team from the West was able to claim that trophy.

This summer, with the Anaheim Ducks atop the world of hockey, the Stanley Cup made its rounds of Newport-Mesa. The trophy, which traditionally gets passed to each player on the championship team, logged appearances at Muldoon’s, Fashion Island and the Orange County Performing Artscenter. That last location was an especially fitting one. Newport Beach businessman Henry Samueli and his wife, Susan, who recently had a theater named after them at the Artscenter, are the owners of the Ducks and helped guide them to their first title.

NEWPORT BEACH — Mark Smith, the center for the San Jose Sharks, stood on the stage in a dark corner of the Blue Beet Café, strumming an acoustic guitar and belting out lyrics in a demented, nasal whine. "I'm drowning in my own self-loathing," he sneered over a pulsating beat provided by his two-man band. "But it feels so good/Just like it should." In his black T-shirt and jeans, the lead singer of the Vinyl Trees was barely recognizable as a hockey player. Two of his friends — Dustin Penner of the Anaheim Ducks and Joffrey Lupul of the Philadelphia Flyers — blended with the crowd in plain clothes.

It is a commonly held precept that "all men are created equal. " Unfortunately, some are then born more equal than others. For one young woman named Osiris Avalos , her life began in her drug-addicted mother's womb with an abusive father attempting to beat her mother into miscarriage. As horrific as this sounds, it is an all-too-common reality that deserves reporting. The depths of depraved human behavior never cease to shock. It gets worse. Avalos survived and spent her early childhood shuttled between her suffering mother and grandmother.

ANAHEIM - Inside a makeshift dressing area near the rink at the Honda Center, Tyler Maloney changed in a hurry. He didn't have much time to celebrate the Corona del Mar High ice hockey club team's championship. Maloney had to get to another rink in Orange County not as well known as the one he and his team skated on Thursday. A teammate reminded him about what was next, a practice. Yeah, Maloney had a practice to get to after he helped CdM win the Anaheim Ducks High School Hockey League Varsity 2A Division title with a 5-3 win against Edison.

Organizers called it "Center Ice White Out," as the mighty Anaheim Ducks held their annual casino night raising needed funds for the Orangewood Children's Foundation and for Court Appointed Special Advocates of Orange County, better known as CASA. The handsome athletes proudly known as the Ducks took their calling seriously and showed up dressed in all white with an occasional splash of orange at their home turf, the Honda Center. The gentlemen mingled with the crowd of some 650 donors surrounding a sea of gaming tables, ultimately raising $100,000 for the two charities dedicated to serving foster children in Orange County.
