Eat your heart our aaawall!
Great story: My cousin (Ron) golfs regularly with Bobby Clarke and Steve Coates. Been doing it for years. I'm not even sure how that first started. My cousin owns a couple of delivery routes for Ginsberg Bread out of Atlantic City, NJ and Tim Kerr used to own a restaurant in Avalon called...T.K.'s. Anyway, he probably met all the Flyers that way because T.K.'s was a part of the route.
So, I called up Ron and asked him if there were anyway he could get tickets. He said probably not, but he would try. So he goes golfing with Clarke and Coatsie two days ago and they both laughed before he could even get the question out of his mouth. Clarke said that he was about the 200th person that asked. Ron probably went on to tell him about me being in the Army and Iraq.
Ron called me and said no dice. Then, he calls me up today and said Clarke gave him two tickets to Friday's game. He said the Flyers gave him 4 and he only was going to use 2. They are Club Box seats! I'm dying here! And...what if Clarke is using the other two and is sitting next to me?!?!?! Wow. This is going to be unbelievable!!!!!!!!!!!!
BTW - Ron is sending me Clarke's mailing address so I can send him a Thank You. I would really like to send him a thoughtful gift. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
