    Flyers fan since: I became a casual fan in 97. Growing up in Washington without a team I mostly just watched whatever few NHL games were available. The 97 Flyers was the first time i can remember pulling for a specific team. In 2006 I ended up moving to Bucks County, and it didn't take long to be converted from casual fan to full blown addict. Moved back to Washington in 2015, and am eagerly awaiting our very own NHL team finally. I can't wait for the booze fueled fist fights with myself when the Flyers come to town. By the way I've been attending Everett Silvertip games since they were founded and I have never seen anything like what Carter Hart is doing here. Completely insane. Can't wait to see him in orange & black.​

    Geez, don't know how I overlooked this thread.

    I'm from South Philly. Favorite teams: Italian National Soccer Team, Flyers, Raiders, Inter Milan, Yankees, Duke basketball, AS Roma, Napoli, Phillies, Sixers, Penn State football.

    I am a true cigar aficionado having smoked well over 1,000 different brands of cigars from every cigar producing country on earth.

    I'm also an Italophile meaning I love all things Italy.

    I'm also into food, liquors and beer and possess an extraordinary palate.

    I love being here with all of you.

    Can you name me a couple good robust Italian reds? I like thick wines, like peasant wine.

    I want to visit Italy so bad, I really regret not studying abroad in Rome when I had the chance last year. Go Roma!

    Sure but they're not necessarily going to be peasant wines. The first I would recommend is a good Amarone. Moore Brothers in Pennsauken sells a great one from Ca La Bionda.

    The second I would recommend is a Montepulciano D'Abruzzo.

    Italy is exceptional among the exceptional. I've traveled all over the world and for me, nothing and no one comes close to Italia.

    It's like the very best in life rolled into one spot. You can literally spend a lifetime wandering the streets of Rome and never fully see and comprehend it all.

    I'll never forget the first time I landed in Rome. I kissed the ground when I got off the plane. Then had the most amazing Cappuccino I ever had in my life to that point in the airport!

    Location: Sydney, Australia :cool:

    Fav Players: Ghost, NP, Provy, TK, G

    Only a recent convert to NHL. Friends that moved to Canada for a while got us all into in. Some are Canucks fans, a couple others are Rangers. Tried watching both but had no attraction to either. Been an Eagles and Sixers fan for 20 years, so decided to try watching the Flyers and they just worked. Philly sports is just meant to be for me. Have been to WFC for a couple of Sixers games. Will need to catch a Flyers game next time I can get over (and a game at the Linc)

    Been lurking around these boards for a few months. Might as well post my anger at Filppula, Farmer, Manning etc instead of yelling at my computer :mad:.

    Luckily Flyers games are closer to Sixers game times than Eagles. Getting up at 3-5am Monday mornings kill me during NFL season.

    Hi, all!

    Name: Daphne

    Age: 18

    Location: Pennsylvania

    Favorite players: Gsus, Moose, St. Patrick

    Favorite teams: Flyers and the Union

    Glad to be in contact with more Flyers fans because no one in my family likes hockey. I'm a fairly new fan (started watching games last October), so forgive me if I don't know something.

    **** the Pens!

    Welcome! You'll fit right in, **** the pens! Daphne is a cool name btw

    Sorry to hear you're a Union fan like me, we both like mediocrity apparently.

    Good dayz and a jolly good show. Speaking from Blighty. Bit of rugger anyone.

    Nah just kidding.

    Like any good human I love the Flyers.

    Favourite players are Giroux and Coots.

    I don't like Malkin.
