I had been to a couple concerts over the years at the Saddledome but never to a game. I met someone on an online dating site and we decided that a Flames game would be a fun, interactive, low pressure, first time meeting, blind date. We met for an early light dinner and drinks at Ship and Anchor. The comfortable atmosphere and fellow patrons helped us both feel at ease – of course the cocktails helped with that a little bit too. We went on to the game. Admittedly I didn’t know much about hockey so he spent a lot of time explaining things to me so I’ve got it down now. The vibe in the stadium at a game is so much different than when I’ve been to concerts there in the past. I felt like I had a massive adrenaline rush the entire time. After the game we were going to hit up a club or a casino but ended up walking around the neighborhood and talking instead. That was our first date almost a year ago and we’ve been to a couple more games since then.
Blind date at the Saddledome - eeek!
