UPDATE: Flyers Charity Auction Confirms The Yet Unconfirmed Winter Classic

Winter_classic
For Christ's sake, you know why this thing hasn't been resolved yet? Because the the NHL is yet to reach a deal with the Phillies over using Citizens Bank Park. But the game is going to happen. Need more proof, just in case? Puck Daddy found item eight on the Flyers charity golf tournament auction list:

Whelp, guess the game is back off… (nice spot by @one_curly_fry)

….

That's great and all, if not stating the obvious. I like item number seven better:

Trust me, kids, you don't want to sleep in a hockey locker room.

Puck Daddy points out that the auction item also all but confirms an Alumni Classic to take place on New Year's Eve. He wonders if the Flyers will invite Eric Lindros, so they can reunite the Legion of Doom. I would consider it a very high likelihood they do- wink and nudge. 

H/T to the 900 people who sent us this, be sure to check out our Winter Classic category for all updates. 

Also, Bryzgalov will apparently wear both masks (home and away) this year.

  1. Really? The fucking tiger for home games? Sigh…

  2. I’m going to guess if he does the home/away mask idea he does the Philly-themed for home and the “Eye of the Tiger” mask for the away games.
    He could wear a freakin’ paper bag on his head for all I care, just stop the pucks and shut down that 5-hole (which apparently Danny scored on today. Fun times).
    Let’s Go Flyers!!!

  3. Amy, if you read the linked article… “Bryzgalov will alternate the masks. He will wear the tiger mask, as he did Thursday, for home games. The historical mask will travel with him for road games.”

  4. Sorry. I missed that.

  5. I’m sorry, but the Tiger is a bad-ass animal. It’s a shame you watch too much E! and celebrities have ruined it for you…

  6. God, this is more on-again, off-again than Brenda n’ Eddie.
