Stampeders Game from the ENMAX Box

I got an email from Mary when I was at Tech Trek:

Hi Simon,

ENMAX has invited Esri to come to the football game โ€“ Calgary vs Hamilton โ€“ and Dave and I are going.

There is room for one more.

Donโ€™t know if you want to come, but wanted to invite you.ย  No pressure either way.

Can you let me know tonight?


I said yes, of course. And tonight was the night. The view from the box was good.

There was football-suitable food like hot dogs and nachos and dip, and fun things, like Stampeder logo-shaped cookies.

The white one in the foreground was eaten shortly after this photo was taken

The Stamps won the game 28-14 over the Hamilton Tiger-cats, but I’d say the highlight of the night was meeting Jon Cornish. He came into the box to meet and greet. Sorry about the quality of the photo. I shook his hand.

Rain hit in the third quarter, but I was warm and dry. Such luxury. I feel so lucky to have been invited.

  1. A nice time had. Not in the weather. Neat cookies, how did they taste?? Next time you go you can point up to the box and say I was there…
