Last night at the Flyers game one of our favorite Flyers was inducted into the Hall of Fame. Dave "The Hammer" Schultz took his rightful place among teammates Bernie Parent, Bob Clarke, Rick MacLeish and Bill Barber. We love Dave for a number of reasons - his style of play, his role in two consecutive Stanley Cups, his mustache, the song "Penalty Box" and maybe, most of all, his love of the Flyers and their fans.
One of our favortie Schultz memories took place just a few years ago. He was in the office and was loaning us one of his jerseys for us to re-create. We looked at it and noticed the large amount of blood that was all over the front. From the looks on our faces he could tell that we were shocked that someone had inflicted so much damage to one of our heroes . He immediately responded with, "don't worry about it, none of it's mine."
Check out the link below for a highlight reel of Dave's career and to watch his speech from last night.
As Flyers fans he's definitely our favorite NHL enforcer. Who's yours?
