Flames Fan Roll Call
 
Hey All, I thought with the season approaching, we should get the roll going to see who will be joining us in following the Flames this season. Also this is a good excuse to practice my skills at stickying threads.

When/How did you start following the Flames?
I picked probably the worst possible time to start following the Flames, in the 1994 playoffs. Its been downhill ever since, but it looks like there might be light at the end of the tunnel.
Favourite Flame?
Gotta be Daymond Langkow, who was my favourite NHLer before he got dealt here, coming in a close second is Jordan Leopold.
Favourite Flame Prospect?
Definetaly Aki Seitsonen, but Jimmy Spratt is gaining quick.

When/How did you start following the Flames?
In April of 1989, my mother went on vacation to Hawaii and I stayed with some family friends. They watched hockey every night, and I chose the Flames as "my" team since I was born there. Fortune smiled and they won it all. I started following the league seriously in about 1992.

Fav Flames: All time - Theo Fleury, this year - Regehr and Phanuef

Badger Bob 10-22-2005 10:57 PM

Name: Scott
Location: Buffalo
Age: 38
Goes back to the Atlanta days of Curt Bennett, Tom Lysiak, Eric Vail and Pat Quinn.
Favorite current Flames: Jarome Iginla, Kipper, Rhett Warrener, Chris Simon.
Favorite all-time Flames: Gary Roberts, Al MacInnis, Doug Gilmour, Joey Mullen.
Favorite Prospect: is Phaneuf still considered a prospect? gonna get a little controversial here, but the future will eventually show that the Craig Button draft record really wasn't that bad. Since then, it's been a crap shoot. Then again, aren't they all? Yes, there's some wishful thinking, but the early round Sutter selections (with the notable exception of Phaneuf) have been project picks.
The connection with HF all came about from a Google search over draft weekend. Much has happened since then, but "the good old days" are definitely missed.
Memorable fan moment: in a relatively intimate situation with a lady friend in Ottawa on a wintery Saturday night, while trying to catch a glimpse of the Blackhawks-Flames game on HNiC. Jeff Shantz was centering the top line with Val Bure on the RW. :blush: Looking back, the priorities weren't exactly in order.

When/How did you start following the Flames?
The day the Flames arrived in Calgary, although I did like some Flames players back in Atlanta, Eric Vail, Willie Plett, Tom Lysiak and Pat Quinn.
Favourite Flame:
All-time: Kent Nilsson Current: Jerome Iginla


First Flames Memory is first ever Flames game against Islanders in season one. Standing room tickets in the old Corral with a buddy and his dad and uncle.

Favorite Flames Moment: Being on Electric Avenue when Flames won the Cup in 89 and the Flames fans showing the world how classy they really are as there were no brawls.

When/How did you start following the Flames?
It was when I was 6 years old in 1979 - I loved the agressive physical play of the then Atlanta Flames, expecially Eric Vail - and they have been my favorites ever since.
Favourite Flame:
All-time: Lanny McDonald
Current: Jerome Iginla and Dion Phaneuf (got to love those hits)


I was riased in Edmonton Oiler territory, so all I could do is watch the Flames games on Hockey Night in Canada, I remember the first game it was against my Uncles favorite team - Montreal, at that time the Flames were in Atlanta - but I loved the banging the Flames were doing and it stuck as my favorites style of hockey - Power forwards.

Favorite Flames Moment: Being in northern Alberta and finally getting my chance to rub it into all my oiler friends as Lanny Hoisted the cup - and to make it even better, to reap revenge on my Montreal Canadiens fan uncles face... Oh how lovely it was seeing my all-time favorite Flame hoist Lord Stanleys cup in Montreal!!! Must say though Theo Fleury's historic slide as he scored that playoff goal was also very high ranking - lol

Yes, that is why I included the last name, I always thought that was kind of funny, till he got traded. The jokes I had to take from friends about asking why didn't I buy a Chris Clark jersey.

When/How did you start following the Flames? I don't really remember... might have been '88... all i know is my first vivid flames memory is Lanny's 1000th point
