I don't know much about San Francisco, but I do know a few people who live there who hate it when people refer to the city as "San Fran". Their reasoning is that nobody calls Los Angeles "Los Ange". "SF" is what they claim that they prefer there.

Pretty smart move, Jamie, getting into the division a year before Palm Springs starts up...

I know the locals love it when you call it 'Frisco' so I make a point to do it as often as possible.

We are good and to each their own. I’m personally looking forward to exploring more of California... we actually got married in San Fran... honeymooned there... great opportunity to make a difference in this community.

That is really awesome. There are some really nice areas in Stockton that don't get a lot of press; some really nice country clubs.

Also, Winter skiing is 2 hours away, bass fishing is right in your backyard and ocean fishing in the Pacific is about 2 hours away as well if you drive to Emeryville. It does get very hot there in the Summer however.

I'm so happy to have the Heat in Stockton; living in California, its the closest I've ever been or will ever be to the Flames. Its been really great to go to games and see so many Flames Jerseys being worn.

Just please don't call it "San Fran" or "Frisco". Its cringeworthy to locals, almost similar to when a person is trying to be cool by using slang incorrectly.

My first Flames autograph came from Dillon Dube in 2019 during my first ever trip to Calgary. Dillon told me he was just in "San Fran" - but I forgive him; he seemed like a great guy.

I live near SFO and would love to work for the Flames in some capacity. When the SF Bulls were in town I was a voluntary off ice official, helping with shot counting, score tracking, notifying the locker rooms when 5 minutes were left in intermission; it was great.

Shoot me an email, jcochrane@stocktonheat.com

Maybe we can find a way to bring you closer to the team. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and connection - would love to chat.

His Official Title on his Business Cards should be:
