It’s OK, Kipper, we understand.
As most Calgarians who follow hockey know, Miikka Kiprusoff declined a trade at the deadline to the Maple Leafs Wednesday.
For the past 9 years, the Calgary Flames’ all-star, all-time, all-world goalie has done everything and more for the team.
He almost singlehandedly won the Flames – and its fans – a Stanley Cup.
He has backstopped this team to more wins than they probably deserved over that period of time.
He has wowed the fans.
He has wowed the critics.
He wowed them again on Wednesday.
In not accepting the trade to Toronto, Kipper basically screwed the Flames out of an asset.
And, it’s speculated, he’ll retire before playing his last season here next year.
But that’s OK. We understand.
You see. Kipper has a life beyond hockey. He has a wife, and two young boys, one of which was just born in March.
My adventure continues… #yyc #calgary #downtown
Calgary police settle on new fleet vehicles
After a year of testing, the Calgary Police Service announced Tuesday it is replacing its fleet of Crown Victoria cruisers with Ford Police Interceptors.
The new vehicles will be black and white — a nod to police cars from years past — and will feature the force’s silver and gold logos.
Bon Jovi performed without the band’s number two man last night, guitarist Richie Sambora who missed the show and will sit out the next leg of the tour for “personal reasons.”
To make up for the guitarist’s absence, the band will reportedly make a $100,000 donation to the Calgary Homeless Foundation.
