OT: My trip to Toronto/Hockey Hall of Fame

I recently visited the hockey hall of fame in Toronto and I wanted to share some pictures with you all. I took as many pictures of anything that I saw associated with the Flyers. I'll put up as many pictures as I can. Enjoy!

Thanks it was a great experience. I was really hoping they would have Bernie's mask on display somewhere so I could get a picture with it but it wasn't displayed at that time. They change out specific players from time to time.

No Leafs golf bag? huh. Haven't been there in about 10 years even though I'm not exactly far away.

meh. the HHOF is the type of place you only need to go to once. for the most part it's been the same for the last 15 years

glad you had fun there though. a must-see for every hockey fan

Nice.

My dad and I visited Toronto 2 summers (July 2011) and it was awesome.

Saw all 3 Phillies games against the Blue Jays and we also hit up the HHOF.

Terrific job. The image(s) of Pat Quinn, Moose Dupont, Frank Bathe and Dennis Ververgaert (?) displaying the 29-game unbeaten streak is superb.

great pics, I had a great time there as well but I was so confused or diappointed that it was basically in the mall. We went in the same way as you I suppose cause you have a pic of it then mass confusion down in the food court..lol. Still a fun time, thanks for the pics.

Thanks for posting these! I'm hoping to make the trip up sometime this season and tour the HOF. Also hoping to catch a Flyers/Leafs game after I take out a second mortgage.

I was there. Toronto is the most beautiful city i was ever in. it really amplifies the bad of philly. You can't find a cigarette butt on the street. unbelievable. the hall's cool. The only thing you seemed to have missed was watching us slap them silly in their own arena. I went in 05' when they had lindros and we had forsberg and we won 5 2. richards had a shorthander and everybody i was sitting around was saying how there's no chance we weren't gonna win the cup with that team. They even tricked me . I was like "yea, we rule. we got forsberg and hatcher and rathje." I really wish my wife wasn't such a puss cause i'd move there tomorrow. I do heating and air conditioning and she's a nurse so you know theres work. I think i gotta drug her and just get her on the plane. let her see. its too good to resist once your there. btw. you get to any strip joints on younge ave to blow some of your loonies on? you know what i mean. the got some good ones up there.

Nice stuff. I still needed to get there. I had to laugh at the Winter Classic pics though. The best they could get was Lilja's jersey?

Another thing I miss about not working downtown. One of these days I need to go back to the Hall, they rotate the displays which is great and the building is gorgeous. Glad you enjoyed your time here!

Excellent pictures. It has been a long time since I've been up to the HHOF but seeing your pictures makes me want to schedule a return visit.

Thanks for including the pics of Neil Pearts drum set. I was wondering where that particular kit ended up.

Do you recall, was that one photo with the four individuals or was Quinn separate?

To clarify the order, Bathe has the lighter facial hair. I am almost certain the other player, darker hair, is Ververgaert.

Toronto is definitely awesome and beautiful. I absolutely want to go to a Flyers-Leafs game.

My friend told me about the strip clubs but I didn't get a chance to go to any of them . My weekend was strictly geared towards hockey related items. It's funny how they have change for dollars and 2 dollars (loonies and twonies?)

It was all one picture in the background of the showcase

No problem. They had the video of him making the recording on in the background.
