From Tim P. (Feb. 27):
I knew I wasn't going crazy.

But again back to the topic of post (re: carnival) Kimmo didn't leave becuase of his boot. His foots not connected to his hand. He left because of his son same as Lavi.

I have had it before. But I did those exercises they recommend, and the issue went away after a while.

Grossman had a nice exchange with a child in a wheelchair. Looked like the kid had been through a lot, with burns on his body. Grossman bent down and joked with the kid a few minutes. Nice to see.
Simmonds was probably my favorite of who I got to see. The sign specifically said "No posed photos allowed" but anyone who asked for one he politely did so. He also took the time to have a little conversation with me and a few friends just joking around. He was just overall a great guy.

I played 1/2 a season with a broken bone in my foot (non hockey injury) and it actually felt way better when I played then when I was walking around in shoes. Think about it, it's basically a hard cast.

Simon- “It is now but at the same time five days ago I was with LA, he’s right in one part of it but now that’s behind me and now it’s focusing on what’s in front of me with the Flyers. Like I said I’m really really happy to be back”

Finally got home and have all my stuff hung up

I had bought another jersey frame before I went, so when I got back this time, I could hang my signed Simmonds jersey up

Now I have a signed Jagr jersey, Giroux jersey and Simmonds jersey all hanging up on the wall

Where do you get your jersey frames? I seem to recall you talking specifically about them around this time last year

These are the ones I have - All 3 are the same one - black with the flyer logo:

I looked at TONS of various makes and models last year - and decided on this particular one. I liked them enough to buy the 3rd one last month - in anticipation of getting the Simmonds jersey signed

Thanks... Considering I am way down here in Texas, I'm VERY happy with what I have.

Yes, I just started last Carnival (2012). I know I am very lucky. So far, I've met 10 Flyers players - two of them twice (Jagr and Simmonds - met Jagr again in Dallas in January).

I am hoping my wife lets me go to the carnival again next year

I'm running outta room for frames jerseys. I MIGHT be able to fit one more - but I'd have to take down my signed Nash Bridges poster (signed by Don Johnson). Not sure I wanna do that....

Yea, I'm not into doing that. I didn't go thru all the trouble to fly and get the signatures (and meet the players) to turn around and try to sell them. If I lived up there, I'd probably go to more of the sports shop signings to try and catch other players. It's cool to have this stuff.

I have 1 more puck not pictured... A Flyers pucked sign by Simmonds for my son. When I got home this evening - the first thing he asked me was if I managed to get Simmonds to sign the Flyers puck I had previously given him. He is super happy. My wife said he had a smile all evening.
