Let's Go Flyers. Clap clap clapclapclap

Went down to the Spectrum yesterday for the Flyers last-ever game in the historic building, an exhibition they went on to lose 4-2 to the Phantoms, their AHL affiliate. Was a great time, though, remembering where young Brian yelled and screamed at Islanders' hothead goalie Billy Smith to the point where Smith made a threatening move in our general direction.
In any event, here are a couple photos from the event.

Fare thee well, old Spectrum.

The man, the myth, the legendary Stanley Cup winning goalie Bernie Parent signs a couple autographs outside the Spectrum.

The Cup banners hoisted to the rafters one last time.
