True story: my dad coaches a team and one of his players is from Pittsburgh. A coach that kid used to play for works for the Penguins. Anyway, that coach got in contact with my dad b/c the CEC people wanted to go through a dry-run for an NHL game, so they invited my dad’s team to play the first game at the arena. They had camera crews, tv time outs, all of that. Best part is…they referred to my dad’s team as the Flyers – on the scoreboard, announcing, all of that. The ‘Flyers’ were down 2-1 at the end of the third, tied it up with under a minute left, then won it in a shootout. My dad was so happy. He’s now undefeated in the NHL, and he said he hoped he put the whammy on the new place. Let’s hope he’s right.
