Five Reasons I Love the Flyers: Dan Miller

Dan Miller is a State Farm Agent living in South Jersey. He grew up in Delaware County and disliked the Penguins before he liked the Flyers. Even as a kid, he thought a Penguin was a stupid men’s professional team mascot. He spent his youth skating at the Skatium in Havertown.

The events that led to this meeting trace back to Berlin, New Jersey. …
