    First trip to Phi

    Well boys I am not a bucket list type of person but if I did have one, seeing the Flyers in Phi would be at the top. Soooo I am doing it. Shamefully doing it at 52 yrs old having been a fan for 47 years. Coming Nov 7 for the Habs with a Habs pal of mine and a couple other buddies. Would love to meet some fellow OAndB freinds and am happy to have recommendations for food and record stores for my Friday in town. Pretty stoked about this!

    also..do not go to Pat's or Geno's for steak sandwiches..try Cleavers on 18th st near chestnut or Oh Brother on 2nd and Market

    enjoy it when you can...if you are into history also..can hit up the entire Old City area..National Constitution Center..Liberty Bell..American Revolution Museum are all close by but need some time to get through it all...i will probably be working lol

    Yes I went right down to the glass for it to...

    I like watching a lot of the little stickha sling warmup drills some of the elite guys do ... shows you how sick their stickhandling is ...

    There’s lots
    Of good and bad though ...

    I remember going to a habs sabres pregame warmup in Buffalo ages ago and I was watching goon Andrew Peters for a bit and it was so funny he couldn’t pick a corner to save his life ... so many of the shots he took were right along the ice and in the middle of the net

    Hahaha

    Just nice to be there early and no stress of wondering where stuff was or how to get there etc

    Before kids came along whenever I would go to OHL Icedog games I would often go for the warmups ... I like them

    In fact one of the last times TK played the Icedogs I brought my
    Son to the game and put his flyers jersey on and TK tossed him a puck ...

    Good advice and perspective. And cool re TK and the puck. How old is your little dude?

    I'd like to catch the pregame skate, start drinking in the atmosphere and get the bar service thing figured out, lol.

    Yup! We stayed for about a week two blocks from there. We ate there pretty much at least once per day and never had the same thing twice except for the cheese steaks since there were like 10 different versions of them! The ones with pepperoni mixed in were so ****ing good!!
