Song of the Match
Before the song comes a distraction since the game tunes were not so riveting today. So, here’s the Sign of the Match, it could be the sign of the season. You have to check the photos and tell me how you decide when this action becomes excessive and who judges that?
It was Fire White’s 21st win of the season: Sweet Dreams Are Made of This. There you have it, the fab song from The Eurythmics, sung by that famous Scottish hockey player, Annie Lennox.
Who am I to disagree?
A quick turnaround and Calgary Fire White travel south down the QEII highway on Sunday, Jan 28 for a game against Lethbridge Cyclones at Henderson Ice Centre (12:00). this is the only team to have beaten Fire White in regular time this season.. should be a good one in Alberta’s windy city.
