Credit where credit is due

Though it pains me to say it, the Flyers did a great job over the weekend. They hosted a kid from my area for his 'make a wish.' The kid featured has a younger brother who plays on my kids hockey team in the Harrisburg area.

If the video is the same one they've been showing on the flyers site, at the end Voracek is sporting a jersey from our squad which is pretty cool. I talked to his dad when they got back and all the things they did for them (Voracek in particular) is just incredible. I wish (all) the players got more credit for the time they spend off the ice doing this sort of thing. Some of it is documented, but a lot isn't.

However, I can't say it swayed me to remotely like the team. At all.... :P
