Plus, I park my truck on any sidewalk or median that I feel like when I'm picking up my Starbucks.

Sounds like I am just her type lol........

Probably doesn't qualify, but I've sat directly in front of the Management/ Coaching staff at Training Camp events in both the Saddledome and Winsport for years (they sit in their own section at WinSport now) in order to hear their conversations. Few observations:

1)Hartley used the F bomb every second word.
2)Conroy controls most conversations, and is the first one to offer up info on players and prospects-very knowledgable, will be a good GM some day.
3)Tre is pretty laid back, and cracks jokes
4)Burkie was pretty stern and quiet, but surprisingly nice and accomodating to the fans. He's probably about 6'2" as well.....
5)Before Sigalet was made Goalie Coach, Marcoux was at a camp at WinSport to talk to brass. Conroy said an offer was on the table, but Marcoux chose to go to Carolina (I think?)

Brian Burke is probably the nicest man I've met in hockey.

Yep. Went to school with them. Back then though they were more granola but super nice.

Not quite an in Dome thing but I was watching clips of Conan and noticed that there was a Flames retro Home jersey hanging in the hallway.




Did some research and found out it was this:

Through one of his skits over the years Conan came up with a super hero character he called "The Flaming C". The Flames getting wind of this sent him a framed jersey letting him know about their "Flaming C".

On the back it's crested as "O'Brien" with the number 11, for 2011 when they sent it.
