After seeing some of the ages here, it's a good thing there are a few of us to bring the average age to something that can purchase a beverage at a Flyers game.

Heh

I think it unlikely, but I did love a girl in Moncton once... Or was it twice? I don't usually go for the gals in Maritime regions (too salty), but in this case I surely had, as the Irish say, drink taken.

I mentioned him more so because of his lawsuit against the organization. He won over $1m in that matter, IIRC. Had to do with the team docs and their treatment of his foot.

EDIT: Looking back at his career, he played 44 games for the Flyers. Spooky, considering the topic is "44."
