Am I the only one that can't stand Pierre McGuire?  To me, he breaks all the rules of being a sideline reporter.  Do not speak unless spoken to.  He annoys me to no end.  I get to the point where i want to throw something at the TV everytime I see him.

Yes, they played pretty well. I was hoping Simmonds would have had a hat trick. Oh well...

I read that he took a puck to the face during warmups, and got 25 stitches.  I'm liking him more and more!

Yes, he has been wearing a full cage on his face the past couple of games.

He got a goal today, and Jagr got two. I was hoping Jagr would get a hat trick. The Flyers lost 4 to 6, though... Bryzgolov got pulled after he let a goal in on a five on three power play. That was a ridiculous shorthanded goal.

Anyway, cool to finally be in the Wells Fargo Center after watching every game on tv.

I picked up a Simmonds jersey too :)

Well. I am back at the hotel after the carnival...

Just getting off of crutches after being on them for like five months, I brought them with me... I knew that there was no way I could stand in line, all day long, otherwise.

I was very lucky- they accommodated everyone with handicaps. Typically, they had me track up to another level or back door, and they worked me in right away. So, I rarely stood in any line. That was sweet.

I managed to get autographs from Giroux, Jagr, Timmonen, Simmonds, Bryzgolov and Talbot. There were other players, but as there was a cost for each, I stuck with my favs.

Now I have to buy two jersey frames for my autographed Jagr and Giroux jerseys...

I know, silly for a grown guy to fly up from Texas for this. But, I love the Flyers, and I really never go anywhere. I watch every game on tv, so  I wanted to do this at least once...

Sounds good Ship, and while it ain't for everyone, I'm glad you got to do something to feed one of your passions.

That sounds like a great experience.  My dad took me to the carnival when I was 13, tons of fun!

There is nothing silly about that.  It sounds like you had a great time up there.

Was their a individual fee to get autographs or a one time fee to get as many as you wanted?

Jagr and Giroux were presold, as was Hartnell and JVR and Bryz.

Everyone else was $20 per person, 2 autographs each.

All money goes to Charity They do this fundraiser every year. This year was the 35th year.

The Canucks are my other fav team. I wish they did an event like this too, but they do not.

Woohoo!

Simmonds ties the game with 9 seconds left. Jagr goes on to win it in overtime

There were sessions where you could play video games with certain players - they made fun of Max Talbot's game on the large screen in the middle of the stadium... It was funny...

Dancing with Max Talbot!
