Calgary 17th Ave a Bust

After my 6:30AM meeting yesterday at the pool, I came home and wondered what I would be doing for the rest of the day. I have no shifts until Saturday so while I was considering my options, a friend of mine called me up and asked if I wanted to go to Calgary. He wanted to buy a new suit. His wife wanted him to buy a fancy new suit for a wedding they are going to this weekend.

After shopping, for a very nice and might I add expensive new suit, we drove down 17th avenue or “the red mile” on our way to lunch. We were there too early to see any celebratory breast flashing, which I guess, is becoming a tradition there. It’s like big foot, the Yeti, or Ogopogo – you hear about these sightings, but you never actually see them yourself. Except on the Internet. (NSFW duh)

On top of it all, the Flames lost last night. I heard yesterday morning that Tampa Bay defenceman Dan Boyle’s house had a bad fire causing $300,000 worth of damage. It’s really too bad, I can’t even imagine how devastating it would be if my house caught on fire. I thought that the whole team might be thrown off their game but it didn’t look like it affected them at all. They beat the Flames 4-1 last night tieing up the series with one victory each. You’ve got to hand it to them, it’s going to be a fight to the finish.

Better luck next time Flames.
