My brother Denis came down to Calgary to catch a couple of hockey games and to spend some time
with me in Calgary.


Full size
Our first stop when Denis came in was to see the Penguins-Flames game. We went early to see the warmups
since this was the first time that Sidney Crosby and the Penguins had been to Calgary in 2 years and only
his second visit to Calgary ever. Note the number of Penguins jerseys.

TSN had this game covered so this is Ray Ferraro between the benches.

Marc-Andre Fleury had a great game on this night and beat the Flames on his own 3-1. Calgary played
well and put 37 shots on him but it wasn't enough.

There it is - I have another photo of me and Sidney Crosby and you don't.

Denis has a photo too now of him with Sidney Crosby.

Banff area


Full size
We were going to ski, but the unseasonably warm weather (the Pineapple Express) made the snow not that
great, so we took a drive around Banff instead. We found 10 elk hanging out on the road to Minnewanka
Lake.


Full size
Denis thought these elk were pretty small.

This guy was giving us the stink eye.

We also ran into a sheep licking the salt off the road.


Full size
I made Denis a sweet garden gnome, named Randall or Randy, and Randy joined the adventure. Here he
is with that same sheep.


Full size
After having lunch at Minnewanka Lake, we spent some time sitting in the hot springs in Banff, one of
favourite stops.

We also got tickets courtesy of my friend Kirk to the Predators-Flames game. Here are Denis and I after
the Preds beat the Flames 1-0.
