my native toronto


the air canada center


my present home, ottawa. a very proud city with a regional population of 3 quarters of a million, only 17 000 of whom can find the time to go to a second round playoff game. sad.


i am presently sitting on the second to top floor of the large white building on the right side of the pic below

and the corel center, where the sens play. fyi, it is about a half hour away. a half hour that is multiplied by 3 before and after games.

[q]The Atlanta Flames (NHL) 1972-1980

They all laughed the day hockey came to Atlanta. It was
a sick kind of a laugh for it was not a very funny joke
to most hockey people. They saw this as the last rotten
board in an already dilapidated house.

Atlanta - a city where football was king - a city where
basketball and baseball were themselves barely hanging on
(with only minor league baseball seven years earlier) - a city
where hockey was foreign and the only ice rink little used.

"The NHL is greedy," they wrote in the fall of 1971. "It's only
expanding for the the six million dollar entry fee. And it's
foolish, since Atlanta is bound to make the league a
laughingstock."

"The National Hockey League." wrote one Montreal columnist,
"has become senile."

Oh, how wrong they all were.


Above is the introduction to The Babes of Winter, an inside
history of the Atlanta Flames early years, written by Jim Huber and Tom Saladino.

A short history of the Atlanta Flames.

Nov. 9,1971 - NHL franchise awarded to Atlanta.
March 2,1972 - Coliseum named the OMNI.
May 22,1972 - "Boom Boom" Geoffrion named coach
June 7,1972 - first and second expansion draft choices - Phil Myre and Dan Bouchard,both goaltenders
June 9,1972 - first amateur draft choice - Jacques Richard.
June 10,1972 - first signed contract - Bob Leiter.
June 11,1972 - Ken (Jiggs) McDonald announced as play-by-play broadcaster.
Sept.17,1972 - first exhibition game (Atlanta 4, N.Y. Islanders 1).
Oct. 14,1972 - first home game (Altanta 1, Buffalo 1)
April 4,1980 - last home game - versus N.Y. Islanders


Although the Flames ranked 15th in the league in attendance,
it was not enough to save them from being sold to Calgary.
It was not a lack of fan support that caused the sale of the
team. More so, it was due to a lack of major television
contract and a crumbling real estate empire that caused
the sale of the Flames.
In a late bid, actor Glenn Ford offered a reported eight
million dollars for the team, but it did not come close to
matching the reported sixteen million dollars offered by
Calgary interests.

i grew up with the coach's grandson. and his grandson is now a professional baseball player.

That's right, The Atlanta Flames. I still have some of their old hockey cards, I think. They had a different jersey than Calgary, obviously, but they were also red.
