The Philadelphia Flyers may be a rough-and-tumble team with a gritty reputation on the ice, but they always make sure to save some time to have a little fun.
This Halloween, the team’s equipment managers played the classic ‘snake in the Gatorade cooler’ trick on the players. It was all fun and hilarious, watching Vinny Lecavalier come dangerously close to fainting and then getting upset at the rest of the guys for laughing at him (although it was even funnier to watch Zac Rinaldo scream, because come on).
This Valentine’s Day, though, Flyers fans have a much more exciting way to celebrate the holiday with their NHL team — Valentine’s Day cards.
These aren’t your run-of-the-mill Valentine’s Day cards, and I wouldn’t recommend letting your kids pass them out at school (because you might get a rather strongly worded letter). But just search the hashtag #NHLValentines on Twitter, and you’ll find some real gems to send your friends (or your loved one, because to each their own, really).
This is fair, as even Steve Dangle of SportsNet has spent some time this year contemplating the ‘ass toughness’ of hockey players.
This one’s a bit weirder.
(I take that back. This one is the weirdest.)
Happy Valentine’s Day, Flyers fans.
