I didn't want Briere here, I didn't like his size, I didn't like his game, I didn't like his playing history...

I was so wrong, and it felt so good.

Danny Briere, more than any other player the Flyers have had in my 25 or so years of fandom, had taken my personal biases and turned them upside down.

Why did I begin to love his game? Because more than any other Flyer in recent memory, he flat out wanted the Cup.

Every year.

I am sad.

#48 will always hold a special place for me. He made me love a player I hated, and that has never happened before, and may never happen ever again.
