From Broncos to Avalanche, let the Walmart family sports feud in Denver begin. Everybody wins!

Avalanche owner Stan Kroenke, four close wins after getting his hands on the Stanley Cup, flashed a smile worth a million dollars. But by raking in a cool $4.65 billion, Rob Walton trumped Kroenke to grab the real big prize in the sport from Denver.

Let a friendly Walmart family feud begin. Let’s score in championship trophies.

America’s wealthiest family is now the sporting royalty of our dusty old cowtown. It’s Rob vs. Stan, two healthy and ambitious seventy year olds in a hurry to score big points and make big marks while they still can.

The son of Sam Walton, Rob was born into the Walmart empire. As Bud Walton’s son-in-law, Stan married into a family that made billions by selling everything from tube socks to beer-flavored gummy bears.

But if you know anything about the Walton family’s work ethic, both Rob and Stan worked hard for their money. So let’s spread the blankets at the foot of the Rocky Mountains at the Walmart family picnic and let’s top it up the healthy way among billionaires.

After the Avalanche made a stunning comeback, defeating Edmonton 6-5 in overtime and advancing to the Stanley Cup Finals for the first time since 2001, an enthusiastic team owner extended his right hand to greet me outside the Colorado locker room to greet. then gladly offered to help with the writing of my column.

“On a rainy night in Canada,” Kroenke explained late Monday as he left the arena, “it didn’t look good for the Avalanche. Then everything changed…”

Well, a few ticks less than 24 hours later, on a Tuesday night in Colorado, everything changed for the Broncos. A new era of NFL football began, ending the clumsy mistakes and ugly disputes between the late Pat Bowlen’s heirs.

Walton, along with his daughter and son-in-law, broke the record for the most expensive purchase of a US sports franchise, agreeing to purchase the sport’s crown jewel in Denver for $4.65 billion.

In a statement, Rob said his family is inspired to “lead this amazing organization in a vibrant community full of opportunity and passionate fans. Having lived and worked in Colorado, we’ve always admired the Broncos.”
