Two Minutes Hate! The Doug Risebrough Edition

September 07 2012 09:22AM




Oh man, I am so excited about this feature. There is nothing I like more than railing against those who we deem have wronged our Calgary Flames. A good text based hate hucking is going to make us all feel better about the current labour unrest, the Flames' stumble into mediocrity, and whatever crazy thing Michael Ferland is about to do next, trust me.  

Now you'd think, this being a hockey blog and whatnot, that we would call this feature "Two Minutes For Hate", in which those we loathe would have their sins recapped and would be forced to sit in the penalty box, but this hardly seems like fair retribution. No, we feel that our chosen tribute to Orwellian brainwashing and surveillance tactics are far more necessary, not that we here at Flames Nation would EVER try any of these mind control schemes on you, our noble reader.

Seriously though, we are watching you.

Our own Nation overlord Kent Wilson recently contributed to Puck Daddy's Essentials project, listing the essential moments, players and other details about the Calgary Flames. While Kent's choice of the acquisition of Jarome Iginla from the Dallas Stars was a pretty good one, I found myself thinking back to 1999.
