Five Reasons I Love the Flyers: Ladyneat

Ladyneat is a terrific photographer and dedicated Flyers fan. She is also one of the nicest people to follow on Twitter. If you do not already follow her, you should. We are grateful to have her submit her list of the five reasons she loves the Flyers. I was honored to be asked this question. I have loved the Flyers a very long time.

The morning after: Flyers @ Sabres 10.26.10

“The morning after” is a review of the previous night’s Flyers’ game which, in theory, provides a more objective perspective on the game.

“The morning after” is a review of the previous night’s Flyers’ game which, in theory, provides a more objective perspective on the game. The next part of this post is a metaphor for the effort that the Flyers showed last night:* They sucked. *Brian Boucher and Ville Leino aside. Some quick thoughts: What do Ville Leino, Blair Betts, and Scott Hartnell all have in common? They all have more goals than Mike Richards, Nikolay Zherdev, and James van Riemsdyk.
