Today, a person wondered if the Flyers’ new alternate jersey will actually be their 2012 Winter Classic jersey. Here’s that thought, undoubtedly told in a hushed tone, perhaps you’d even call it a whisper*:
Among them [at the Skate Zone] was Zac Rinaldo, wearing black pants with an orange stripe down the side and many players donned black helmets, which had cream-colored numbers and an orange outline. Usually, the Flyers wear solid black pants and the black helmets have solid white numbers on them.
In the locker room, the striped pants hung in most players’ stalls with the cream-numbered helmets above. In all likelihood, this is part of the Flyers’ new alternate kits this season. .
Shh. As I murmured quietly last month: I bet the Flyers’ new third jerseys are the Winter Classic jerseys from 2012.
Those robots will be here any day now, and even they’ll know that kits is a soccer word.
*That’s how Dave cites reports nowadays:
#Flyers formally announce what's been whispered for a while. Coatsey back to radio and Chris Therien to TV.
