I am pleased to share here two images that I took yesterday (October 19, 2017) at the dedication of the new statue of the late Flyers' Chairman Ed Snider just outside of and below the windows of his office at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. I was lucky enough to catch my longtime friend and Hall of Fame goalie Bernie Parent just as he gave a heartfelt "Thumbs Up" to the man who ran the club for almost half a century at the statue's dedication ceremony on the fiftieth anniversary of the first ever Flyers' home game which took place just a few hundred feet away in the now departed Spectrum on October 19, 1967.

Just seven years later Parent led the expansion Flyers to its first Stanley Cup with a 1-0 shut out of the Boston Bruins at the Spectrum on May 19, 1974.
