Awesome gesture by Shelley

Shelley invites fan in Flyers locker room


Quote:
When Haddonfield’s Steven Kempa showed up at the Flyers’ practice rink on Tuesday wearing his dress blues from the United States Naval Academy, he hoped that maybe a player would toss him a puck.
Flyers enforcer Jody Shelley did something more, inviting him into the Flyers’ dressing room.
“He was wearing his uniform, so I thought I’d invite him in to meet the guys,” Shelley said with a gap-toothed smile.
Kempa, 20, watched practice with his girlfriend, Amanda King, but abandoned her without a second thought.
“How can I say no to that?” Kempa said, holding a Flyers jersey filled with autographs. “But I do feel bad that I’m in here and she’s out there.”
Kempa, a Haddonfield High School graduate who is now a sophomore studying engineering at the Naval Academy, was impressed by Shelley’s gesture.
“It means a lot because I’ve been watching the Flyers since I was a little kid,” he said. “It shows me he cares about more than hockey; he cares about the fans. It also shows an appreciation for the military and the uniform. That‘s pretty special.”

Why did a Flyers player invite Shelley to the Flyers locker room in the first place, though?

If only Shelley would invite a fan to accompany him to the press box.

I came in hoping to read that Shelley volunteered to be a healthy scratch for the remainder of the season

Shelley seems like an awesome dude, but most enforcers and bottom six guys are. otherwise they'd have a hard time keeping a job.

I also thought this was gonna be about some hand gesture Shelley made to another player.

I've always found the fighters (if that's what you want to call Shelley) to be the nicest ones. So things like this don't surprise me, but good to hear nonetheless.

Some of you keyboard tough guys are pathetic! The man shows his appreciation for this guys service to our country and you make jokes. Question for you tools, has anyone noticed a large amount of cheap shots to the team this year? Shelley basically is useless when it comes to hockey plays but he most def. has the other team thinking twice about running at the stars. I would love to see some of you tell him to his face what you say on your computer. Oh wait that means you would have to leave you comfort zone! *******!

Shelley is so scary to professional athletes, that even Chuck Norris quivers in fear of Shelley's glorious six minutes of ice time.

No one is questioning that Jody is a standup guy. I like him. I don't mind his place on our team as much as some people, but he really is not an effective player.

I guess you're still mad?

Jody Shelley is so scary to adults and professional athletes a like that he's able to beat them up in their dreams. Like Freddy Krueger.

I hate people that do this. You got caught out looking like a tool, so you try to turn it around and talk about how you trolled us. Don't make me laugh. Just admit you were wrong
