The Flyers Are Holding a Celebration of Ed Snider’s Life


Comcast Spectacor, the Philadelphia Flyers and the Snider Family invite fans and friends and to gather at the Wells Fargo Center on Thursday, April 21, and celebrate the life of Ed Snider. Father of the Philadelphia Flyers hockey club, family man, entrepreneur and philanthropist, Mr. Snider was a true visionary in the sports and entertainment industry, and a towering figure in the City of Philadelphia for more than 50 years.

The event begins promptly at 1 p.m. and is free and open to the public. Doors to the Wells Fargo Center will open at 11:30 a.m.

That would be the morning after Game 4, and day before Game 5. I would THINK this would allow members of the team to attend before boarding a train to Washington to clinch the series surprisingly early (to some, anyway). #WinForEd

  2. Fuckin Snider just picked a fight with Himmler. He’s been starting shit since he got down here.

  3. Funny story I know a chick who banged Mr. Snider years back. She said he has a weird pee hole

  4. I’m using a vacation day to pay my respects. I will be wearing my Rod Brind’amour white jersey with a 100 pins on it.

  5. Ed is already causing trouble down here, and even tried a coup with Goebbels, Himmler, Stalin, Pol Pot, Mao and Dolph to oust the man in charge. The guy didn’t take kindly to Ed telling him to lose the pitchfork and turn up the air conditioning. BTW, Caps in four from a very reliable source.

  6. What makes you think that a “safe” life is a mundane one? That just exposes your faulty thinking. Not to mention that what is safe for one is not safe for another. In my young adulthood I was into extreme living (mountaineering in the Andes, Arctic circle exploration,kayaking Norweigian waterfalls, and more). But that chapter ended for me, and now I’m a successful entrepreneur who faces insane challenges every day in the whirlwind international business community. Want to know the truth? I look back at my “extreme” days and think how immature and naive I was to think I was so “above” the rest of the normal people living boring lives. I was self-absorbed and couldn’t see that the simplicity of my physical extremes were nothing compared to the complexity of the interpersonal, social, business world and what extreme intensity of purpose it takes to succeed. I am much more fulfilled now, and am glad that I’ve moved beyond that stage in my life.
