You may remember from last month the “I’m not bud, I’m Voracek” kid– a poor man’s child’s version of that kid who was all upset about getting a Penguins jersey for Christmas. As you know, the Flyers took care of the latter kid by sending him a whole bunch of stuff and tickets, and as it turns out, they hooked up “Voracek” as well.
Email from reader Nick:
The Flyers, after catching wind, in a game which my friends and their son attended on Dec 18th, they brought a “I’m not bud, I’m Voracek” sign, Voracek spotted it during warmups and had his G/F go meet them in the stands with an autographed jersey, which in itself is amazing.
But last night after attending the Devils game, they actually got to go down in the tunnel after the game and meet the players – several of them taking pictures with “bud,” including Voracek, Raffl, Giroux, Simmonds and of course Voracek. I’ve attached a photo with Voracek and Ethan (bud) that my friend posted on Facebook for reference.
It’s pretty awesome how legitimately thrilled Voracek looks to be meeting his littlest fan.
This is some great work all around by the Flyers here. But again, talk to us about how you shouldn’t bring your kids to the game.
