Hockey on the Fly: Day 5 – Carolina

Posted by Ron Opher On March 17

Andre Delsol’s run at a world record and a personal goal of seeing 30 NHL games in 30 NHL cities in 29 days tested his alarm clock with a 6:00am flight from Buffalo to Raleigh via Baltimore for back-to-back ‘Canes games (stowing away on the team charter was apparently not an option).

Southern states (and yes, North Carolina is one) are noticeably unique.

So in honor of one of the south’s favorite comedians, here are a few Jeff Foxworthy-like jokes to set the scene. All of the following scenarios I witnessed in Raleigh..(read more)

Andre’s tweets of note:

About the travel: Early morning today, but it should have been earlier. A brain (cramp) nearly cost me my flight! Keeping it together.

About seeing the ‘Canes on back-to-back nights: Got 3 hours sleep last night, but after a two hour nap and energy shot (brand not mentioned) I’m buzzing and ready for B2B Canes!

About the transition from pre-game to game time: “There’s a hurricane a-coming” – well that’s what the announcer told me anyway

About the home team being 1-4-0 so far in Hockey on the Fly: Home team falls to 1-4-0 in my presence. Settling nicely into my role as the cooler. Look out Atlanta. Sorry in advance.

PP: No need to apologize. Remember PHILLYPhanatics.com is covering this, not ATLANTAfanatics, lol. LET’S GO FLYERS!!!

AD: Good, i wont feel as guilty tomorrow then

Arena rating: 3.83 out of 6.00
