I was one of the few remaining people at the Spectrum the night Ron Hextall scored his first goal. 17,000 will claim they were there, but 13,000 were kicking themselves in the ass for missing that part of history.I used to like the Flyers back when they were partners with the Hershey Bears (I'm originally from Hershey, PA). We were season ticket holders to the Hershey Bears back when I was a youngster in the mid-80s, I remember watching Ron Hextall play in Hershey before they brought him up to Philly. But then they sold out Hershey and the Capitals took them under their wing. Been a Caps fan ever since. My middle boy is a Flyers fan. I took him to see the Flyers play the Caps March of 2011 right before I deployed last. Philly fans are rude...how surprising, lol
And Flyers fans, like everyone else have their moments. Mario Lemiuex played his last game on Philly ice and got an incredible long and loud standing ovation.
