For The Win

At the start of the NHL preseason the Philadelphia Flyers opened with a fairly progressive move for an NHL team. They did away with the long-running (and sexist) Flyers Ice Girls and replaced them with an all-male team that cleaned the ice during breaks in play.

You can guess how well this went over with some Flyers fans. In their first appearance, the new, all-male crew (dressed in totally reasonable track suits) received many, many boos.

Either Philadelphia fans don’t like change or they don’t like their eye candy being taken away from them. Possibly, a combination of both. The ice dudes have been soundly booed during each of their subsequent appearances.

That’s enough for management to take action and the team announced Tuesday night they would bring back the girls.
