Box Seats at the Saddle Dome

It was a great night – last night in spite of the Flames defeat 1-3 at the hands of the Phoenix Coyotes – thanks to the generosity of the Hewlett-Packard HPC team and their well stocked SkyBox! I was invited by fellow academic and researcher Stephen Cartwright a good friend and a fellow adventure addict.

Although the Flames didn’t win there was some hope when they scored a goal with only 4 minutes left in the 3 period…which seemed to transform them temporarily in to a fighting frenzy and had them put 10 shots on the Coyotes Goal within a minute. Unfortunately the adrenaline rush faded and Phoenix scored again – with less then a minute to go (on an empty net) after Calgary Pulled there Goalie. Perhaps not the best of games – but we were all thankful it ended with a little excitement. Thanks again Steve, and Hewlett Packard for a great night!
