I posted a few article in the History of Hockey section yesterday but here is another from the Inquirer:

The view from the old Spectrum press box was a study in the sociology of Flyers fans. They wore their hearts on their backs.

Some fathers (in Clarke and MacLeish and Parent jerseys) brought their sons (Howe and Kerr and Hextall) to the games. Others shared their favorite sport with their daughters (Zezel and Zezel and Zezel).

For a while there in the 1980s, you looked at the Flyers' team photo and wondered if the organization was trying to assemble the best-looking team in the NHL. The club had somehow gone from the toothless, ragged Broad Street Bullies to a precursor of the Backstreet Boys. It seemed as interested in selling posters as selling tickets.
