To avoid embarrassment, keep your sisters away from the press

Because they are likely to say things that you wouldn't necessarily want out there during the playoffs. It's a lesson Thrashers prospect Paul Postma is facing right now.

With many fans choosing to stay home to watch the Calgary Flames-San Jose Sharks tilt on TV, the Saddledome [home of the Calgary Hitmen] was less than half full.

But despite being avid Flames fans, the Postma sisters -- Jamie-Lea, Alissa and Sharlene -- wouldn't consider missing a Hitmen game.

Their brother Paul, who was facing the Lethbridge Hurricanes last night, is one of the club's top defencemen.

"I think we've only missed two games since he was traded (from Swift Current,)" said Jamie-Lea, who makes the drive from Red Deer for every junior contest.

"We're die-hard sisters. We've been Flames fans since we were babies. Even Paul had a little sleeper he used to wear.

Does everyone have a visual in their head of baby Paul in his Calgary Flames sleeper? Good. I'm sure that's just what he would have wanted.
