After careful consideration, though, I do not believe this is the appropriate route to take in this instance. First of all, we have a significant overlap in participants from event to event and it is not right to ask you to constantly open up your wallets every …


Viewing party: April 23, Flyers vs. Bruins

You know what else makes them fun to watch? Being with other Flyers fans and drinking beer. So, let’s celebrate Jaromir Jagr’s return to Philadelphia by drinking together, saluting him, and kicking some Bruin butt.
