CALGARY - If you're a football fan, you've likely watched the Terry Tate: Office Linebacker spots -- the hilarious Reebok ads that feature a menacing man tackling business-types in a crackdown on employee etiquette.

Tate's co-workers know precisely how the Calgary Flames were feeling when they rolled out of bed Super Bowl Sunday.

Sore.

Stunned.

Probably not the least bit excited about eventually returning to the office in the aftermath of Saturday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Chicago Blackhawks at the Saddledome.

The biggest difference between the Flames and those run over by 'The Pain Train' in the Reebok ads -- if you haven't seen them, they are a must add to your YouTube to-do list as you check out all the latest and greatest Super Bowl commercials -- is they know they did everything right Saturday night.

They deserved two points.
