I have nothing to add except I was at that Flames game in LA and I sat a mere few seats away from the Beckhams.

Pleasant unexpected surprise to see those two absolute mega stars just act like a normal family attending a sporting event. Becks would bring his daughter up to the glass and she'd have a grand time banging on it during TV timeouts. I heard he makes his sons work menial jobs too.

Of course after they blasted them all over the jumbotron, folks starting harassing them for pictures. Becks obliged, but I think he also asked security discreetly to put a stop to it so he could just enjoy the game.

I always love hearing about people's run-ins with celebrities. There was once a thread on here where posters were talking about meeting different NHLers behind the scenes (some good experiences, some bad), and it kinda devolved into a discussion about all celeb experiences. That was entertaining.

My brother and sister-in-law once met Candice Cameron-Bure at the dome when Valeri played here. They got her autograph, and said she couldn't have been sweeter. I have heard from people that work at the Saddledome that she's quite rude to the service staff though.

Politicians? Harper was at a lot of games as well.

Wouldn't mind seeing Trudeau at a Battle of Alberta...would be the one time the fans could agree on the same thing...booing him

Wow I didn't know James Harden was a Flames fan. Cool.

^Am I missing something? I don't see Stephen Harper anywhere in that picture. I do, however, see two notably offensive things:

1) The guy giving the camera the finger

2) The guy wearing an ugly-as-sin green jacket in a sea of red.

Wear red!

Harper isn't in that one, it's Jason Kenney and Andrew Scheer.

Rude? I heard an absolute nightmare, like threatening job loss at the tiniest things.

We were in the same baby swimming class at Talisman, standing in the water stupidly holding our kids. She looked good, didn't say anything. However, given her later history I am not at all shocked if she wasn't a nice person.

She's gone down the same path as her brother. She's a "defer to your husband" advocate and pretty anti-gay. TBF she's not nearly as bad as Kirk Cameron, and she's seemed to have softened her stances a bit.

Not an A list celebrity by any means, but a few seasons ago I ran into Jamie Salei in the concourse after a game. I asked if I could get a picture with her and she kindly posed with me for a pic!

What's weird is you can't find a pic of Elisha Cuthbert at a Flames game.

Not 100% sure, but the green jacket wearer kinda looks like Paul Martin.

I sat immediately behind her once. I didn’t know it at first. I was explaining to the gal I was with who Valeri Bure was. “You know Pavel Bure, right? It’s his less talented younger brother”. She gave a half turn. Then at a TV timeout, somebody (appropriately) came up to get her autograph. I pieced together who she was.

Hey, maybe it was someone you know getting that autograph!
