The Flyers called me...

Man, I thought I had won a contest or something. At work, I just got a phone call from the "Philadelphia Flyers front office."

Apparently, they were calling to ask about my experience when I went there back in February (I flew up from Texas - and I went to a game and then the Flyer's Carnival the next day).

I told him I had a great time, and I spoke about my trip a bit. But, to get a call out of the blue like that... 4 to 5 months later...

I was waiting to see where his part of the conversation was going. Oh well. No prize

He asked if I was a big fan... I told him he should come see my office at home, at work, and my garage (all the Flyers stuff I have up)... Man, my wife is sick of it - hahahaha....

I get those calls from the Capitals and Nationals about twice a year. I always need to explain that I was buying tickets to see the _other_ team.

They call me from time to time when I was looking into season tickets for a neighbor
