Been a lurker of the flyers(and HFboards) for a while but what made it was the '10 finals run, HBL line, coming from 0-3 against boston, godlike timeouts by Lavi. Always liked the Flyers and their style before that but that season made it for me.

Anyways, Hi

Favorite Team(s): Flyers, As Roma

Most Hated Team(s): Penguins, Lightning, Devils

Favorite Player(s): Renberg, Forsberg, Hextall, Primeau, Lindros, Lidström, Zetterberg, Johan Hedberg

Most Hated Player(s): Ruslan Fedotenko, Scott Stevens, Crosby, Brodeur (Love/hate)

Position: Can barely skate but I would've been a goalie.

Flyers fan since: Long Story in long form. 1992 Favourite Movie = Young Guns 2, got the soundtrack by Bon Jovi. Bon Jovi is from Jersey so in 93/94 when a kid in my class had a brochure with fan apparel and fan club addresses to NHL teams, New Jersey Devils caught my eye so I "picked" them. But then I started collecting Hockey Cards and for some reason I started collecting the Flyers, no idea why really, but they became my team in the group of kids trading cards.

Of course, the season after the switch the Devils won the Cup and that's pretty much sums up my life since then...

Spent every morning before school (pre-internet and channels showing games) watching the results on Swedish Television Teletext and there were ups and downs, the Legion of Doom-days, 96 finals that I didn't see a minute of live, only saw in printed form or on the Sports news. Keeping up with the roster through the hockey cards and NHL on the Playstation.

But it was the Playoff of 2000 that hooked me, Watching highlights with horrible quality on the 56k, waking up for school and having the WTF-moment when the game against Penguins wasn't finished yet and then seeing Primeaus goal in the computer room at school. Damn, those were the days. well, at least until the CF vs Devils...

The countless night not going to bed until 3-4 in the morning, the early summers watching the playoffs as the sun was coming up. The 03/04-playoffs with the OT-winner vs Maple Leafs after Kapanen getting leveled and JR scoring, f-ing Fedotenko scoring like crazy on us in the CF. The road to the latest Stanley Cup Final. the comeback vs. Bruins... When we were 3-0 down in the first in G7 I made the call of going to bed (I know, stupid). I just didn't wanna spend the night and facing the disappointment of losing and I had to work late the following day so I couldn't justify staying up.

So I wake up in the morning, half asleep I pick up my phone and start the NHL Gamecenter app to see what the damage was. I see the numbers "4-3". "4-3" in the series, no brain, the game ended 4-3. 4-3 to who? Well Boston right? No.. Flyers? WTF! Luckily I had taped the game so I just turned on the TV and watched it. I was shaking and even if I knew the result it felt like watching it live because I still couldn't believe it.

And here I am after lurking for maybe 4-5 years enjoying the GDT- and nostalgia threads and everything in between.

It's never too late to start. I stopped playing for about ten years; got back into the game as a player/coach for a men's league team a couple years ago. Most of the guys on my team didn't play as kids and some had never skated before playing on the team. It's a lot of fun to see the guys improve over time. At any skill level, hockey is a blast.

And if you're completely new to the NHL, why would you choose a team that, until two nights ago, was at the bottom of the worst division in the league?

hi, they showed a hockey game on tv don't remember who it was and I loved the fast paced game and the crashes and I decided to go to see Melbourne Ice which is the biggest hockey team in melbourne (I would think Australia) but they aren't even profesional and still loved it.
