Videos: Eric Lindros and John LeClair Flyers Hall of Fame Ceremony

Here are highlights of the 30-minute or so ceremony, of which I spent the entirety trying to suppress the lump in my throat so my wife wouldn’t see that I was on the verge of collapsing into a puddle of my own memories. I’m not a big ceremony guy, but this one… these guys… they were my team from ages 12-17.

Neither Lindros nor LeClair is a particularly good speaker, but I thought they both did a nice job. As did the Flyers. Somewhat disappointed that Carl and Bonnie Lindros didn’t show, though.

Two more videos after the jump.

  1. I can’t help but recall the night I snuck into the Lindros home back in 1993. I dressed up in his clothes and tugged one out in the mirror. When Mrs. Lindros came home and saw me dressed as her husband, we made sweet, sweet love for all of 30 seconds. In her soon to be published memoir, she described it as the worst 30 seconds of her life. True story. Report on that Kyle.

  2. Since when are you so bashful? – You were right there in the mix of. The Lindros’ Labradoodle, named “Corky” had a favorite dog toy which was used for explicit purposes during the encounter. I remember watching from “outside” and thinking that an ocotogon shaped cylinder was not made for those purposes… but Andy made it work!

    I almost feel sorry for you 20-30 year old sad sack Flyers fans. Trying to dredge up some emotion for the unfulfilled promise of the Lindros era. We got Bobby Clarke night. You want to cry like a baby? Go watch that you losers.

      1. That is a pretty good idea.

        Very cool to see Lindros & LeClair being inducted into the Flyers HOF. I was wearing my LeClair jersey while watching the game.

        And, of course, the Flyers give up the go-ahead goal in the final minute of regulation.

        1. Effing stop dude you are such a tool. Holy f*ck. We aren’t messing with you. You suck and so does that avatar.

        2. I used to break into a lot of the more popular Flyers’ homes back in the early 90’s. It was pretty harmless stuff, usually just putting their clothes on, smelling dirty underwear and then rubbing one out. One week during a flyers west coast road trip, I took 5 dumps on John LeClair’s dining room table. I prepped for that masterpiece by sticking to a strict chicken tender only diet. Right KYLE? You remember.

  4. was anyone else nervous when Baby Lindros was being carried out on the ice? They should have put a helmet on him, that ice is Kryptonite to the Lindros Cranium.

  5. Anyone else find it hilarious when Leclair shot Lindros a look as soon as he says Brindamour (sp?) in that video? I fucking laughed pretty hard at that.

    Those were great times. Sad they never won one.
