Back in 75 me and a buddie went out and brought 10 speed Fugi's. We went tooling around and ended up on a hill in Pitman. Let me tell you I busted my ass trying to turn and looking back on it now it was a wonder I did not get killed. You never know.
There's a hill in Pitman?
I'm sure Holmgren tried to walk it off and was forced to go to the hospital. Hope he's ok, those are pretty serious injuries for no vehicle to be involved.
Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren was listed in stable condition at Cooper Medical Center in Camden last night after a scary end to the Labor Day holiday.
Holmgren, 55, was injured in a serious bicycle accident on Monday while exercising in Avalon, N.J.
Exact details and the cause of the accident remained unclear last night, but Holmgren was admitted to the hospital with multiple fractures and cuts that required stitches. Holmgren was reportedly wearing his helmet.
The Flyers issued no statement or comment about Holmgren's health, though of a few of his players took to Twitter to offer their thoughts and prayers.
"Heard about 'Holmer' earlier today, was waiting to comment on it until the media found out," defenseman Matt Carle (@MattCarle25) posted last night. "Hope he's doing alright (sic). Scary, scary situation."
"I hope Paul is all right and gets well soon," goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov (@bryzgoalie30) tweeted.
Complicated situation in part because of the Labor Day holiday. If members of the team's PR staff are otherwise occupied or returning from a vacation, they have to coordinate releases with the Hospital's PR staff. It's best not to have too much detailed information coming from one source without contacting the team.
