With Christmas just around the corner, we here at Chasing The Puck are giving Flames fans the gift of THREE #BTB interviews all before Christmas! (And yes, I did just come up with my own jazzy hashtag!) Oh, and an update from last week’s interview – Baldwin hasn’t hunted me down so I’m guessing I must be in the clear!
Continuing on from last week, the bowling evening was drawing to a close and many players had sneaked out. Luckily, three players still remained – Only issue was they were all being mobbed.
One of these players was ready to go with his coat on, but he’s just far too nice to walk away from the fans who wanted selfies or a quick chat. And I’ll admit – I used this to my advantage, BUT… I did it for all of you!! As he went to walk by I asked if he could spare 2 minutes for an interview and without a second thought he immediately agreed and came to sit down.
Calle Ackered is a man of the people and it is no surprise whatsoever that he is adored by the Flames fans.
