It’s Hockey Day in Canada today, so as soon as you’re finished reading this post you should go grab your skates and your stick and head to your local outdoor rink to play some shinny… unless of course, you live in Vancouver where there isn’t really a winter so this isn’t an option. CBC came […]

Calgary Flames Superskills Competition

I went down to the Danone Superskills competition on Sunday and checked it out and it was a fun event. The Saddledome was as loud as I’ve heard it in a while, which is was probably due to the fact that most people that were in there don’t go that often. The majority of fans […]

Red Mile: Five Years of Blogging

Five years ago today I posted my first Red Mile Blog post the day before the 2005-2006 season opened. It took me a while to realize that today was the anniversary of the day it all began, but after a quick check of the RMB archives I realized that it all started on October 4, […]

Pepper and Connie in Flames Retro Jerseys

30 Years of Flames Hockey in Calgary

The Calgary Flames launched the 30-day countdown to the start of their 30th season today by unveiling the “Retro Jersey”. Make no mistake about it, this is not a 3rd jersey, it’s something completely different. The retro jersey is a 1980’s themed “old skool” jersey that will be worn by the team 5 times this […]

We Are The Flames

So we’ve got game #2 in Chicago tonight at 7pm and it’s time to highlight some more Flames multimedia to get you ready for the Saturday night action. I received an email from Richard Cassie back in February about a song he had written as a tribute to the Calgary Flames and their fans. The […]

Doc Seaman

Flames Co-Owner Doc Seaman Dies

The greetings when running into Doc Seaman at the Saddledome or the golf course during a charity tournament would come with a quiet hello. And, as Mike Vernon pointed out, a not-so-quiet handshake. “His handshakes, always so firm,” said the former Flames goaltender who could call Darryl K. Seaman a friend for more than 20 […]

Red Mile: A Part of Canadian Culture

I got a message this morning that Red Mile: The Calgary Flames Blog is featured on, the official Canadian culture webpage that is hosted by the Government of Canada. I’ve been listed (along with several other hockeyblogs) on a page dedicated to exploring hockeyblogging in Canada. Check it out! It discusses the nature of […]
