    Hi, gang!

    I'm a long-time Flyers fan who's participated in other boards over the years. Last season, I started reading this one and have been impressed by the knowledge and commitment of the members here.

    I grew up in Philly, where I learned to play hockey and love the boys in orange and black. Even though I went to college out of state, and have been living in Southern California for over 30 years, I've never lost my enthusiasm for hockey, or the Flyers.

    Hopefully, you won't mind me hanging out here this season.

    Let's go Flyers! :)

    Re-Introduction Thread?

    Name: Tim

    Age: 40

    Location: Rochester, NY

    Favorite Team(s): Flyers, Stars

    Most Hated Team(s): Penguins, Blackhawks, Rangers, Ducks

    Favorite Player(s): Wayne Simmonds, Sean Couturier, Radko Gudas, Scott Hartnell

    Most Hated Player(s): Sidney Crosby, Patrick Kane,

    Position (if you play): Right wing. Badly.

    Flyers fan since: Tocchet and Hextall were still playing, although I took a decade break from sports after the fall of Lindros

    I started getting back into following hockey once my brother got the Center Ice package and we'd spend Saturday nights watching games, getting liquored up and having fun with the family. Hopefully our teams start getting it together in so we can blow off his dual goal horns and yell loud enough to scare the crap out of anyone upstairs!

    Name: Jeremy

    Age: 20

    Location: Enola, PA, about 15 mins from Harrisburg.

    Occupation: Student, studying to become a history teacher.

    Favorite teams: Flyers (NHL), Bears (AHL). Because of the latter, I unfortunately have a soft spot for the Caps, too.

    Most hated teams: Pens, Rangers, Devils, Baby Pens.

    Favorite players: Simmonds, Ghost, Provy, Konecny, Hartnell, Gagne, Knuble, Carter, Niitty. Non Flyers: Peter Budaj

    Most hated players: Crosby, Malkin, Avery (I know he's retired), Bobby Farnham

    Flyers fan since: 2005. I followed the Phantoms' Cup run that year after the Bears missed the playoffs and subsequently started to follow the Flyers that fall.

    I've been lurking here on a near daily basis since at least 2011. I usually read along with the GDTs as I watch the games, so I feel like I have a very good grasp on who everyone is around here, haha. I don't know many people who like the Flyers, let alone hockey. With the season just around the corner, I'm pretty excited to finally have an account here and I hope to become at least a semi-regular contributor here!

    Aside from Wilson I think it's pretty easy to have a soft spot for the Caps.


    What a tragic team to follow primarily though.

    The Dale Hunter era is a clear dividing point.

    Yeah, they're definitely far from the biggest evil in the Metro. Their fans can be weird, though. I have a few Caps fan friends that have this vitriolic hatred for the Flyers as a whole for seemingly no other reason than Ray Emery back in 2013 :laugh:
