WOW Moment: Electric Ave aka the Red Mile

Years ago when the Edmonton Oilers' Steve Smith scored on his own goal allowing the Calgary Flames to win Game 7of that playoff series, Spoletini and his University of Calgary Dinosaur football buddies donned their red Dino sweaters and headed downtown to celebrate.

"We all went down to Electric Avenue. This was pre the Red Mile. It was like the Red Block. It was just people everywhere . . . It was just going nuts.

I'll always remember that euphoria and the camaraderie.
