CFL player Mylan Hicks (age 23) killed in night club shooting.

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 21:20:55 -0400


It was a game worth celebrating for the Calgary Stampeders. Not only had they beaten the visiting Winnipeg Blue Bombers on a late and dramatic field goal, the victory had assured the Stampeders a berth in November’s Grey Cup run. So several Calgary players, including practice roster defensive back Mylan Hicks, met at the Marquee Beer Market. Hours later, police would find Mr. Hicks sprawled outside the nightclub, a gunshot victim who was rushed to Foothills hospital, where he died. He was 23.

Mud and Glory

Tue, 20 Sep 2016 04:38:34 -0400

"Of a wet and thunderous sodden Saturday they couldn’t put on any lights fifty-two years ago, there weren’t any to put on. It grew much darker and blacker in vilest intensity with coagulated punch-ups going oddly unnoticed due to the annoying and most profound darkness that at least cost nothing. The dark has always been on the house I think you’ll find. Dark and mud sponsored the game of life back then before the new artificial grass authorities put the kybosh on free thinking."(image)
