Tomorrow the Flyers open the 2008-2009 NHL season at home. While most home openers are exciting as fans anticipate the upcoming season and another quest for the Stanley Cup, tomorrow's opener is extra-special. Why? Because the puck will be dropped by the most famous hockey Mom of all, Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska.
Sarah was invited to do the honors by Flyers owner Ed Snider, a man who builds his stadiums with solely private money and treats the fans with respect. Imagine that. Mr. Snider is a self - made man. He is the epitome of class and a great American. If only there were more like him. God Bless the Flyers, God Bless Ed Snider, and God Bless America!
