Stocking stuffer coolness

How cool is it they even make this?



If I managed to find a Kidd figure... I'd have the 2 reasons I became a Flames fan as a kid.

Short story... grew up forced to love the Maple Leafs and LOVED this guy. Then I saw Kidd's cool mask and, as an impressionable kid, fell in love with the team. Then, finding out Dougie played for the Cs, my decision was looking pretty firm. Soon as I was old enough to stay up and watch the games (I watch games until 11 and midnight here) and saw Fleury tearing it up... I was concreted a fan.

Silly... I know, but it makes this little trinket especially awesome. My mom said she nearly lost her mind seeing this on a shelf.

The simplest presents can have the largest value.

Once again... I'm pretty stunned they make this.

Got the same Gilmour figurine from my roommate for Christmas. Definetly a cool gift. One of my all time favorite flames.

Haha. I'm glad I was only 6 at the time.

Looking at the trade now... yeah, it was terrible.

BUT... for me, I love the trade. I may have never been a Flames fan at such a young age.
