#Flyers Alum Win My Heart (again) at #flyersalumni 50th anniversary @flyersalumni @nhlflyers #hockey

I should probably start by thanking my husband, Paul, for indulging my mid-life crisis. The second that I read that this 50th anniversary season’s alumni game would feature players from all five decades, I knew I had to be there. Moreover, I wanted…
