 From Pattison Ave:"It looks like we can add to the list of historic sports statues in Philadelphia. At XFINITY Live! on Saturday, March 30, at 11:00 a.m., Comcast-Spectacor will unveil a new, seven-foot-tall, bronze statue celebrating one of the most iconic moments in Philadelphia Flyers hockey history. The 400-pound statue, which will be unveiled in front of the Broad Street Bullies Pub, depicts legendary Flyers Bob Clarke and Bernie Parent hoisting the Stanley Cup after the team’s back-to-back championships in 1974 and 1975. The monument is sure to be a fan favorite among Flyers fans, who are actually tasked with naming the statue. Flyers fans are encouraged to visit PhiladelphiaFlyers.com and cast their vote for one of these name options: Victory, The Cup, Broad Street Bullies, Flyers Champions, or Walk Together Forever. The selected name will also be announced at the ceremony, which will be attended by both Clarke and Parent, as well as team Chairman Ed Snider and President Peter Luukko. The unveiling coincides with the one-year anniversary of the popular XFINITY Live!, which has been dubbed “Philadelphia’s fourth stadium.” Since the Flyers haven’t given us much to celebrate this season, it feels right to pay homage to their history. It is sure to be an exciting day in South Philadelphia."
