I was into Jane’ Addiction at the time I made this user name. And I’m a Flames addict. So I put the two together.

I've always read you as "dissen tower" for some reason. Never picked up the "n"

Tried to think of a monumental moment in Flames history and my mind came up with the worst trade.

When I went on a first few dates with my now wife, Anna, I was pulling out of a restaurant or something in my old Honda CRX, which had a sticky clutch.

I ended up stalling it and looking like a tool, to which she replied: "Rico. Suaaavaaaay"

IE Smooth, Rick, really smooth.

Nothing. I made it up myself. Although my grandfather was named Cecil. Pronounced See-cil. But most people say it Seh-cil.

Wanted something with red in the name. Big fan of the band Thrice who has a song Red Sky. Pretty simple.

Mine came from the X-Files (M.F. Luder) and shortened to Luder, which apparently is an unsavoury “nickname” for “ladies of the night” in some countries in Europe.

I wanted the username Kent Nilsson but that one was already taken so I picked the name Dion. No particular reason for Dion other than I needed a username. Should have gone like bc-chris and used my real name alberta-chris.

Mine was easy. Heard Ozzy Osbourne playing at the Dome at a Flames game back in the day. The underscore was because I didn't know if Ozy Flame with a space was taken, didn't want to take the risk

Calgary Puck was the first on line forum that I ever signed up for. It asked for a user name, I had no idea and a commercial for Captain Crunch cereal came on, and I was a big hitter in football and hockey so it worked.


Thank god is wasn't a commercial for Special K or Rice Krispies.

Nothing really. There's just something about seeing Estrada's face pop up in a forum that I found funny.

After getting banned on my first and 'everywhere else/usual' username, I decided that I wasn't done with the community, and was going to clean up my act.

I chose a rare animal that I like and relate to, different from any other user name I had ever chosen, to indicate the difference in how I was going to behave here 'this time around'.

Seems to have worked.
