Anyone else out there missing Ed Whalen? Man, there was a sportscaster with personality. Don't get me wrong...I love Peter Maher, but he's the radio guy and that's different.
As for the boys at Sportsnet, their cookie-cutter looks and Armani suits will never evoke the same kind of nostalgia as good old Ed. And I'll bet you'll never hear them refer to "a little fisticuffing in the corner" and offer such sage words of advice as "it's 2-1 Oilers, and if the Flames don't score, they're not going to win this hockey game."
Dear Ed: We miss ya, man.

Welcome to FlamesNation.com! What is this blog? Truth is, I'm not really sure yet, other than the musings of a long-time, die-hard fan of the Calgary Flames. True, 1989 is a long time ago, and 2004 was a cruel tease (unless you believe, as I do, that our boys were robbed in Game 6). So hey, let's see where this goes, shall we?
