This past September my husband and I celebrated our 5 year wedding anniversary and our 12th year together as a couple. This is pretty exciting stuff. We are not normally gifty type people. We don't exchange birthday or Christmas gifts. But I felt like this occasion needed something attached to it. So whats a young couple to do for celebrating? Vacation, No....not this year. Fancy dinner, Nope....not memorable enough. Hmmmm....Got it! It's hockey season again in Philadelphia and we are Flyers fans. Last night was the season home opener for the Flyers and the perfect game to attend for a celebration. Last year the Flyers went to the Stanley Cup Finals and although they didn't win they came damn close and we are very proud of them. The city of Philadelphia was very happy and excited to greet the Flyers back for another season. The arena was on fire and 20,000 people were on their feet to welcome the team to the ice and watch the Eastern Conference Champion flag be lowered from the rafters. We also got to see the prestigious Prince of Wales trophy up close. The Flyers are a community type of team and they often have events and meet and greets for the fans. They had the trophy on display for the fans to take pictures of themselves with it. Very Cool! I have to admit that I would not be a hockey fan if not for my husband. But I love it now and two of my favorite hockey moments happened in this game. A short handed goal and an empty net goal. The Flyers won the game 4-2 and we could not have been happier!
