I remember me yelling down on the Spectrum and CoreStates/FirstUnion/Wachovia ice as whistles echoed... "Hit him dammit" as Bundy was trying wih all his might to control him -- and God Bless Chris, he did a real good job a it... all things considered -- Now I see him saluting and smiling and hugging my Flyers and i is as if I never hated him a second... I want him to succeed and re-sign for another season or so and retire a Flyer.

Funny also how I have forgotten Talbot shushing us after he suckered CarBom into a fight and rallied his Pens as they came from way back and kicked our ***** from the First Round... Five years or so here, and I'm kinda happy he's here.

A couple Bad Guys seeing the light and becoming Good Guys... Like Sgt. Slaughter going to battle against the Iron Sheik.
You're showing your age. I remember when Jimmy Snuka became a good guy after a fight with Bob Backlund.
