If someone asked you to list your five favorite sports movies, what would they be? Your list isn't complete if "Slap Shot" isn't on it. It's a movie starring Paul Newman and I can describe the movie in two words: Hanson Brothers. Did you know that some of the players from the Broome Dusters were extras in the movie?

Here's some awesome news, the Binghamton Devils will be honoring "Slap Shot" by becoming the Broome County Blades (a team in the movie) on January 31st (against Providence) and February 1st (against Rochester) at the Floyd.

Binghamton Blades Special Uniforms

They'll be wearing specialty jerseys and you'll have the chance to meet Dave "Killer" Carlson (Jerry Houser) at the game. The Devils are offering special packages for the weekend, including special VIP meet-and-greets with "Killer" and a Q& A session.

After the Rochester game, the jerseys will be auctioned off and the best part is that proceeds will benefit Sock Out Cancer as they assist cancer patients in our area. They'll split the proceeds between the Foundations at Lourdes and UHS.
