On my very messy desk (it gets bulldozed on the weekend, sometimes), sit two issues of The Hockey News. My very first two issues in truth. Being a subscriber to Gamecenter Live means I get a lot of advertisement emails from NHL.com and the like and this was the fifth email about getting 10 issues of The Hockey News for some low price. I’d just been asked to write here on flyersfaithful.com and I thought, I need to know more about hockey, why not? I like magazines and catalogues.  It might be more the joy of getting something in the …

Hockey Makes Me Crazy

Thursday’s game vs. the Jets. Nuff said. (taken from google images) Sometimes all you want is for your team to play like they mean it.  Always and forever, go Flyers. P.S. I still love Bobrovsky. And I think there must have been a full moon Thursday night. Metaphorically anyway.

More Than A Little Annoyed

I like Mike Richards. I do. He was the first Flyer that I knew of when I entered into the world of hockey. The only other players I knew were Wayne Gretzky (Thanks, Mighty Ducks 2) and Sidney Crosby (due to Pam’s extreme dislike of the Pens’ forward).

The Universal Language

My apologies. I’m saying that straight out. I’m huddled next to my cell phone, awaiting news on my nephew’s arrival into this world. Second nephew, whose name I will find out for sure probably before twenty-four hours are up. My mind is not solely on hockey. Or the Flyers for that matter. But wasn’t Wednesday’s game fun? Apparently, in the WFC, once the Flyers hit four goals, those in charge of the music (are they called DJs even when the song is never played to the fullest?) play the song “Hot, Hot, Hot.” Or something like that. When I heard …

Z is for Zamboni

It’s that time again. Another book and another review. (taken from google images) Z is for Zamboni is written by Matt Napier and illustrated by Melanie Rose (the same team who did Hat Tricks Count). And like the first picture book I brought to you, this has the same set-up. A four-line rhyme using the letter of choice and a great illustration. Then on the sidebars of the pages is more information about the term or person described in the rhyme. Here’s a peek: L is for Lord Stanley’s Cup, every team’s true quest. Its winners hold it high and …
