Philadelphia to host 2016 U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame ceremony

Philadelphia to host 2016 U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame ceremony

Philadelphia will host the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame induction ceremony on Nov. 30.

USA Hockey on Tuesday announced that the Flyers will host the event for the first time.

The 2016 Hall of Fame class includes legendary high school coach Bill Belisle, former NHL forward Craig Janney, and the 1996 World Cup of Hockey team. 

That team featured Brett Hull, Brian Leetch and Abington native Mike Richter. It also has a special connection with Philly. The 1996 World Cup of Hockey was the first sporting event played at the CoreStates Center (now the Wells Fargo Center). The U.S. would go on to win the tournament.

“We’re excited to bring the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame Induction Celebration to Philadelphia,” Dave Ogrean, executive director of USA Hockey, said in a statement. “It’s one of our nation’s very top hockey cities, thanks in large part to the decades-long efforts of the late Ed Snider, and fans in the area will enjoy being part of enshrining the Class of 2016. This is always one of the most anticipated events on the calendar each year and we’re grateful for the advance support we’ve received from the Flyers and our Atlantic Affiliate.”

Tuesday also marks 50 days until the Flyers begin their 50th anniversary season.

Is this the best Philadelphia Eagles poster you've ever seen?

Well, is it?

Redskins CB Josh Norman 'can't wait' to play Sam Bradford twice, insults Eagles QB

It's not enough for Eagles fans and members of the media to rip quarterback Sam Bradford. It's becoming quite popular for other NFL players to do it as well.

Credit Michael Bennett for starting the trend, as Bradford has been a favorite whipping boy of the Seahawks defensive end for some time. Now the Eagles' NFC East rivals are getting in on that action though, as Redskins cornerback Josh Norman got in on the action in a recent interview for ESPN The Magazine.

The context isn't entirely clear, as Norman's quote is provided only as a blurb in the online version of the story. Then again, not much context is really needed in this case. The message is perfectly clear.

"Have you ever once been one of the top 20 quarterbacks in the league? Not that I remember -- and you want more money? I can't wait to play him twice a year."

Unfortunately, the sentiments about Bradford's standing and contract match those of many people around here exactly. The part about looking forward to seeing Norman twice this season, not exactly.

Washington was fortunate when the Panthers decided to rescind the franchise tag from Norman, making the All-Pro corner a free agent. Scheme changes often don't benefit big-money free agents at the position, but the Redskins could be an exception as they play a similar style of defense.
