Danaye's Daily Dose for Thursday, July 22nd

ThankYouGio

The Calgary Flames and their fans took to social media to pay tribute to the team’s captain yesterday. Mark Giordano has been picked up by the Seattle Kraken in the expansion draft, as the new NHL team chose their roster last night. They were able to choose from players from across the league who weren’t put on a protected list and unfortunately Gio was one of them. Fans have been thanking the captain for his years of service not only to the team but to the community that he’s given so much to over the last 13 years and The Flames put out a SUPER emotional video in his honour.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Flames with a hilarious tweet that a ton of other NHL teams agreed with.

The Calgary Zoo has announced the new animals that will be calling the former panda passage home! They’re holding a grand opening ceremony for the new exhibit that will now be called Gateway to Asia and will feature a Malayin Tapir and White Handed Gibbons. I had to google both of these little guys and oh my goodness, they are AWESOME. The Tapir can grow to be up to 8 feet long and kind of looks like a bear mixed with an anteater, with a really long nose. And the gibbon is maybe the cutest monkey in the world with the sweetest looking faces!!
