I wasnt really sure where to put this and didnt think it belonged in the GDT so I'll ask here hopefully you guys/gals see it. We have a few posters from the Toronto area (well, going to the Leafs game), and without sifting through this thread....I was wondering how all of you ended up in Ontario and surronding, if you've been there your whole life, and what made you become Flyers fans???

I live in Scarborough which is now part of Toronto and have never been to Philly but became a Flyers fan in 74 because of Bobby Clarke.

Age: 21

Location: Near Allentown in the Summer, Near Harrisburg during the school year

Favorite Team(s): Flyers above all... I find the Kings and Blue Jackets to be likable in the West too

Most Hated Team(s): Penguins

Favorite Player(s): Gags, Giroux, Betts, Leighton, Nitty, M. Koivu, Kopitar, any other player in the O&B

Most Hated Player(s): Crosby, Gonchar, Cooke, Nigel Dawes

Flyers fan since: The 10 game losing streak a few seasons ago. My roommate was always watching the Flyers and I had never really watched hockey before. Loved the speed of the sport and loved pulling for a (temporary) underdog. As an Eagles fan already, it was a natural fit.

I live in Kitchener, I've been to Philly a couple of times but never during hockey season. But I also became a Flyers fan because of Bobby Clarke with honourable mention to Barber and Dorny.

I apprenticed at an airbrush t-shirt shop there ages ago. That's quite a haul to the Wachovia Center! How did you become a fan?

You expect me to be nice when you go ahead and insult me to the fullest extent by calling me Irish?

So imagine my reaction when I see Hartnell misses an empty net.
Seriously, i'm not sure to be able to see all the games next year.

Otherwise, i didn't know the meaning of Nancy/ie when i registered here. At least i learned a word. Now you have another joke about Frenchies.

Thanks for the welcome

I grew up watching University of Maine Black Bears(home team), then joined the A/F and got stationed in NJ. My brother took me to a game, Garth Snow was in net and Jim Mongomery was playing center... i've been a flyers fan ever since.

I know Snow was hounded a lot in Philly but you should have seen him in Maine.... a magical 42-1-2 Championship run platooning with Mike Dunham. Guys like Paul Kyria, Montgomery, Peter and Chris Ferraro, Cal Ingraham and Chris Imes that was an awesome season.

With any luck i'll be able to get season tickets to Allentown Phantoms in a couple of seasons...
