The Calgary Flames Ambassador Poker Tournament was a blast. I got to witness the past and future of the Flames playing with Lanny McDonald and Sean Monahan
The Northern Lights in Calgary is a rare sight. The lights of city usually blind the aurora, but not in this picture by Neil Zeller. The Northern Lights clearly dance above Canada Olympic Park.
I had a tour of the WinSport Performance Training Centre this week. What a gorgeous facility where the best athletes in Canada train alongside the public.
the parking in Calgary is some of the most expensive in the world. no wonder the downtown is empty on weekends. The city needs free parking to bring the crowds back and add life to the centre of the city.
If you want to see the sun, go to Calgary. There are 33 Days of sun in Calgary each year. Enough to almost make you forget about the cold. Almost.
Calgary needs to have more people downtown. Not more people downtown working, people downtown shopping, eating, entertaining. All you have to do is spend time downtown on the weekend before Christmas to see how badly we need it.
Winter is rough on the prairies, but it's pretty. Hoar frost is a special treat after a cold clear night. All the branches become glinted in crystals.
