Flames are in tough against the Canucks tonight, Vancouver has dominated the Flames at the Dome of late. Here's hoping Kipper can keep the Canucks offense to a minimum while the Flames Offense light up whoever the hell is in net tonight.
Someone forgot to mention to the Flames that they have to skate if they want to win, instead they are standing around watching Vancouver. I predict this will get bad and will probably be the start of a good losing streak.
I kind of hope the Flames just tank this season and we get some good prospects. I really want to see Iggy retire a Flame, but a player like that deserves a Stanley Cup, and he sure as hell isn't going to get it playing with these bums. If the Flames are still playing shit hockey come the trade deadline, we should trade him for draft picks or prospects.
Holy christ are the Canucks fans that live in Calgary overly drunk and annoying. It's a Tuesday night and you'd think it was Saturday. The nosebleeds were overflowing with drunken kids who could barely make it up and down the stairs.
One guy in a Canuck jersey went on a drunken pity rant about how he cheered for Calgary in 2004, and asked me who I was cheering for in the final last year. I told him, a bit louder than I realized: "the firefighters". It was at the perfect lull in the noise from the game. I swear to god I almost got a standing O from the crowd around me. People roared with laughter, Flames and Canucks fans alike.
Other than that, there's not much good to say about a night like tonight.
