i love it on VS coverage that they say that buffalo fans invented the idea of having fans partying outside while during game.
Well they are wrong.
If you buy this dvd
and any flyers fan will tell you that the flyers fans were the ones that came up with the idea of having crowd outside of the arena during the playoffs.
Ill tell the story. Since the Stanley CUp finals game aganist Boston was sold out, 10,000 flyers fan stood outside the hollow grounds of the spectrum doors listening to the game on the radio and after the they won and the cup, the fans ran down the ramp of spectrum and then ran on to the ice join in the celebration.
So it's just a case of been there, down that. Flyers came up with many other NHL traditions but NHL doesnt want to acknowledge it because they consider the Flyers to be the 'Devil Child'
and yes, my parents were on the spectrum ice celebrating with the cup on that day..........
