Welcome sports fans!
It is my fondest wish and the deepest desire of my heart to
see the Flyers win a Stanley Cup have a weekly sports discussion essay. While I’m not well-versed in every sport at every level, I would love for us to have a forum to discuss professional, college, amateur, and even our own involvement in local sports, as well as the personalities that people them. And while I’m clearly posting such an essay right at this very minute (or, have posted, if you’ve come later), I’m not particular on who posts it, or when…only that we know where to look for it so we can all participate.
You could liken it to the current training-camp sitch the Philadelphia Flyers find themselves in, as described in the Yahoo!News story: Flyers have several candidates to fill vacant captaincy. Here it’s a lot like in that locker room. The person wearing the “C”, or posting the essay, won’t be doing all of the work. Sami Kapanen sums it up well, I think (from the above-linked article).
“If you have a C on the jersey, it’s not just up to him,” he said. “It’s a team game and everybody needs to bring something in. You can’t ask for too much from one player.”
