Flyers Introduce "Throwback Thursday" for 2022 Season
Okay last post for today then I gotta scrounge up some dinner for the kiddos.
From the inbox:
PHILADELPHIA (September 8, 2022) – Today, the Philadelphia Flyers announced that the team will host its first-ever Throwback Thursday series to celebrate and honor each decade of Flyers hockey history. Flyers Throwback Thursday games will be held on each of the six Thursday Flyers home games of the 2022-2023 season.
“The Philadelphia Flyers have an incredibly proud and rich history, and these Throwback Thursday games are a great way to celebrate that history and connect today’s players and fans with different eras of the Flyers past,” said Brad Marsh, President of the Flyers Alumni Association.
In celebration of earlier eras of Flyers hockey at each game, the team will bring Flyers history to fans with special guest members of the Flyers Alumni, exclusive highlights and historic Flyers footage, in-arena music from each of the eras, an in-arena organist, and special, throwback pricing on select food, beverage, and retail items each night. Fans will also receive an exclusive decade-themed custom Flyers print.
The team will also wear their 2022-23 Reverse Retro jerseys at select Throwback Thursday games. Flyers trainers and staff will also sport custom retro jackets on the bench.
The days are October 27th, December 1st, January 5th, January 19th, February 9th, and March 23rd.
Good idea though, right? Or are they “living in the past?” You tell me. I think one of the gripes last year was that they did the alumni night and Hall of Fame induction, or whatever the hell it was, before a weekday game and nobody was there. Whatever effort you can make to appreciate former players and honor your past, that seems like a positive thing.
