Flames New Peter Maher and George Johnson book

Looks like this was released yesterday. Foreword by Jarome Iginla

https://www.amazon.ca/If-These-Walls...QGP0XJ0726RAYB

Quote:
As the radio voice of the Calgary Flames from 1980 until his retirement in 2014, Peter Maher has witnessed more than his fair share of Flames action up close and personal--from the 1989 Stanley Cup championship to the individual brilliance of stars like Lanny McDonald, Al MacInnis, Theo Fleury, and Jarome Iginla. Through singular anecdotes only Maher can tell as well as conversations with current and past players, If These Walls Could Talk: Calgary Flames provides fans with a one-of-a-kind, insider's look into the great moments, the lowlights, and everything in between. No Flames fan will want to miss this book.

^ saw it in Chapters on the weekend

Interesting note. Peter was speaking about it and said he actually dictated a lot of these stories and sent them to George Johnson for grammar, editing, etc

Given the author, I would like to see an audiobook!

They were both on the Fan yesterday, recounting a hilarious story about Maher's love of seafood.

In Game A, you lose $1 every time you play.

Begin with $100. If you play only Game A, you will lose all your money in 100 rounds. If you play only Game B, you will also lose all your money in 100 rounds.

However, play the games alternatively, starting with Game B, followed by A, then by B, and so on. You will steadily earn a total of $2 for every two games.

Interesting that when I open the link on Amazon, it says it’s the #1 bestseller in “British Columbia Travel Guides”....
