Andre Iguodala stopped by before the game to pick up some Flyers gear!
Everyone has been talking about Rasheed Wallace and his now infamous Philadelphia Flyers hat. We were more then excited to find out he has been wearing a Mitchell & Ness piece to support his hometown team! We love it and want to thank you Rasheed for supporting the Flyers and Mitchell & Ness!
Below is Rasheed in an interview at practice.
As you are well aware, around here, we get our kicks from celebrating sports history and the players and teams that make it. But, we might, however, enjoy just a little bit more…watching history be made. Having said that, we are holding our breath in anticipation for Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals between the Boston Bruins and Philadelphia Flyers tonight in Boston.
If the Flyers come out on top, they will become just the fourth professional sports team to come back from a 3-0 series deficit and win a 7-game series. Should this feat occur, they will join the 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs, the 1975 New York Islanders and the 2004 Boston Red Sox .
So, the question is…will Mitchell & Ness bloggers be writing about ‘this date in history’ 10, 15 or 20 years from now? We sure hope so.
What do you think?
The Mitchell & Ness office is buzzing about the excitement brought by the NHL playoffs right now. Last night, the Montreal Canadiens defeated the Washington Capitals in game 7 to became the first No. 8 team to come back from a 3-1 series deficit to knock off a No. 1 team since the NHL adopted its new playoff format in 1994. Next up for the Habs are the defending Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins.
One M&N staffer even yelled, 'Go Habs', as he walked in this morning, not because he is a Canadiens fan, but because the outcome of last night's game determined the Flyers' opponent for the Conference Semifinals...the rival Boston Bruins. These two teams have not met in the postseason since 1978 when the Bruins defeated the Flyers in five games. Four years prior, the Flyers upset the Bruins in the 1974 Finals and went on to win the Stanley Cup. Obviously, we are hoping for a repeat of '74...
