Were you in the section where a bunch of us Flames fans started chanting 'ole, ole, ole'?

Anyway, that was an amazing experience and the fact that the Flames won 4-0 was the icing on the cake!

SECTION A BABY! WE START THE CHANTS AND THE WAVES!

****ing incredible experience. I'll never forget it. I had four chemical warmers in each boot and I was bundled up in as much Flames gear as I could wear (including a flag as a cape).

This is one of those things that I look back on in 20 years and be like, **** yeah, I was there.

Awesome. I was in Section K and there was a guy there that started the "ole" chant on our side. He tried to start it in the second but nobody would pick up and he goes "its even annoying when your guy does it isn't it?"

My toes are still numbing, but this coupled with the Alumni game yesterday was just awesome. Definitely an experience to never forget.

Thanks for having us Calgary. Amazing hosts and I can honestly say it's the first time I was never pissed off after a habs loss. Fans were great and I only experienced one idiot throughout the entire day and unlike Edmonton no one felt the need to call me the N word for wearing a Subban jersey. Thanks again

Kudos to Flames fans...

As a habs fan who was at the game, I wanted to comment on how great the flames fans were at the game today.

I was wearing my habs jersey and not once did I take anything more than friendly ribbing from the sea of Flames fans at the game.

Friendly and courteous... even the drunk guys... definitely a lot better than I expected.


Congrats on the win, and good luck down the stretch.

Cheers!

Good showing tonight at McMahon Stadium, from both fanbases.

I'm a fan of Metric, but they were awful tonight. Didn't like that performance at all.

Man I would kill for one of those covers!!!! You name it I'll take care of them!

If you do hold a contest, I think I should win for being the biggest Flames fan in San Francisco!! Such a big fan I feel like Im from Calgary sometimes... and Ive never even been to the city. Such a big fan I always suggest to my GF that we should go vacation in Calgary and go watch the Flames when she suggest we go to Hawaii.

Wow, whatta game. Will never forget that one. Props to the Habs fans who sat out in the cold for 3 hours, didn't see their team score, and still left with smiles on their faces.

Been drinking for 10 hours, I'm out.

Amazing game. Had seats at the very top, row 70. Fortunate that I was sitting on the east side to soak in some sunlight. Once the sun went down, brrrr!

Flames came to play. Habs were off stride. Price kept the score respectable.
Great fans on both sides. Very classy event. Way to go Calgary!

These were my exact feelings about the even, it was incredible, was bundled up but still freezing my ass off, had horrible season in section K row 7, but at the end of the day, it was a good game, there is no other team I would have rather played against other than the Habs, and it was something I will never forget and happy I was able to go.

Sat by tons of Hab fans and the only things that happened was them cheering Go Habs Go, and then we'd just do the same thing to drown them out, but absolutely no problems.

There was a point in the early part of the game, when I sat in my seat, looked around at everything in the stadium and thought to myself "Wow, I'm actually here watching this outside with 40,000+ fans."

Although I loved seeing Kipper get a much deserved shut out, I would have loved to see Cammalari get a goal for the Canadiens, that would have been pretty cool.

Yeah which is strange because i'm as white as they come. They were only offending other Oilers fans there. Idiots can't handle their booze I guess. Being part of the wave was an amazing experience.

Thankfully someone mentioned this, I was embarrassed just to be there. Man that was horrible, I just knew they would suck live. Horrible band. But I'm sure the cold didn't help her.

Not a great performance but they are a really good band and a great live band. The cold and the sideshow atmosphere of squeezing a couple songs into an intermission had to be in play. The second song was better than the first, they were warming up.

Considering the venue and the frigid temperatures, I thought Metric did fine.

Great experience all around, but one of the highlights for me was meeting Theo Fleury before the game. That was pretty awesome, probably won't ever forget that.

Nope. Too drunk / starstruck to think of asking. Oops... We also might be on Flames TV.

Anyway, for those of you who haven't seen this, you can find yourself in the stands (if you try hard enough)
