Definitely, I am slightly disappointed about the lack of your kangaroo knowledge, but please know that was in jest, I am very aware that Austria and Australia are separate entities.

I will update you tomorrow on what jersey I will be wearing and we can try and meet up beforehand.

Ceky, have a great time and post about your experiences afterward. Did you get a blank jersey or one with a name on it?

Hah, will do. I've been meaning to watch it for a long time.

Ceky, hope you have a blast at the game. I haven't been to a home Flyers game in 5 years. I am so jealous.

So I figure the best place to meet is the AT&T Pavilion. I will be wearing a trench coat and holding a briefcase, you will approach from the south and sit at the table 3 paces to my left, you will then say, "Boy it sure looks cloudy under the rainbow" and I will reply, "Die Gans gar ist."

I will then sit down and we can enjoy that beer...


Seriously though, I will be in a black Koho Leclair jersey, jeans, and gray slipper looking shoes, if you want I can bring an Australian flag to wave you down.

I figure time-wise, 6:30 is a good time for me to get to the stadium unless I get caught in traffic, give yourself a chance to catch some of warm-ups and figure on meeting in the ATT Pavilion at 6:40ish.

Let me know if anything changes.

perfect flountown! i guess we will manage without the flag
my outfit for today are light brown trousers, blue/black ski jacket and blond hair (which i wear regularily), size is in the gerbe/ennis category (i simply do not know a small flyers player....)

will be at the pavillion at 6:40!



woof: got a plain winter classic jersey (of course the original with name would have been even greater but it was a 100$ price difference)

i have my camera with me, will share the best pictures of course (in my dreams: nodl crashing sidney into the glass 30 inch away from me)

I figure the easiest place to meet is on the Outer side of the bar, near the large windows and entrance, there is a brick wall there with some tables along it and tends to be less crowded.

that was an awesome evening!

first, great meeting you flountown! the second intermission felt like 3 minutes long, way to short... it was a pleasure for me and really interesting, i think we could have been talking about sport for a loooong time.

with that little beauty of a stadion you flyers fans can be really happy, the wells fargo with all its bars is really spectator friendly (just build more toilets, damn it! )

i do not have the camera-computer cable here with me so i'll have to post the pics in 2 days when i'm back home. just to say, i allready had goosebumps when the warmup started (great tip from all of you to go and look at this). its simply incredible how fast and big those players are.

i had to wake up my brother (in the middle of the night back home) to tape this game for me, according to a nice fellow sitting next to me we were "on camera" quite ofter in our sector.

a few more things i learned yesterday:

.) getting out of the subway and asking someone to make a picture of yourself in front of the "wells fargo center" leads to a picture of you and the mall thats right there.... 1 minute later it was clear that i got the wrong (and less impressive) building on camera

.) ESPNamerica has nothing to so with the ESPN you get here, i can watch 1-2 hockey games a day (live or taped) if there is no world series or sunday night football at that time. strange that this is somewhat better in europe and i hope your ESPN gets the TV rights back.

.) cultural difference: in austria, you can (and people are) regularily chat while standing at the urinal when you are at a game. here, asking someone for directions to the at&t pavilion seemingly leads to a awkward "oh-my-good-it's-george-michael" blank stare at the tiles in front..... weird (sorry about that whoever that was.... sometimes i tend to forget that there are quite big differences)


anyways, great evening, very nice people and pics will follow!

Definitely was a good time and glad to have met you dude. I hope the game experience cements you more towards being a Flyers fan than a Sabres fan.
