Fred Shero, the head coach of the teams forever remembered as the "Broad Street Bullies," chose the hours before Game 4 of the 1974 Stanley Cup Finals to inscribe this on the locker room blackboard: "Win together now and we walk together forever." Well, of course, that team went on to win not one, but two Stanley Cups. Shero could not have been more prophetic. Thirty years later, members of those Cup teams are still revered in the city of Philadelphia and throughout the hockey world, for that matter. In Walking Together Forever: The Broad Street Bullies Then and Now author Jim Jackson wants to bring people back to those glorious days of the 1974 and 1975 Stanley Cup championships through the telling of so many of the incredible anecdotes that emanated from the many memorable characters that created the glory: Walking Together Forever: The Broad Street Bullies Then and Now will follow the major principals of the Cup wins, taking readers through the remainder of those heroes' hockey careers, into retirement, and up to the present. Many of the stories of their personal trials, travails, and successes since hoisting Lord Stanley's Cup are as compelling as those from the championship years themselves. In the eyes of hockey fans, members of those teams have indeed "walked together forever."

Being from Delaware County (Springfield) and having grown up with the repeated disappointments of our hometown teams throughout my youth, it was such a capivating experience to live through and always remember the Stanley Cup years of the mid seventy's. I played hockey because I loved the Flyers and I celebrated with everyone else hoisting my ceramic Flyers mug and toasted the historical event that helped to transform Philly sports. The book bought back many wonderful memories and it was as if I was standing there watching it all unfold again. I loved it and it bought many smiles and great memories back home again. Truly Fred Shero was right on (saying of the day in the 70's) when he said, "Win today and we walk together forever". What a team, what a coach and what a terrific memory.

This book is getting very difficult to find - apparently had limited run and most people who bought it seem to want to hang onto their copy. For good reason. This book offers wonderful insight into what made each individual of the '73-74 & '75 Stanley Cup Champions did that was vital to the contribution towards back-to-back Titles. Many have suffered setbacks not uncommon to the normal person.

This group of players is perhaps more beloved then any in my hometown of Philly's history...and with good reason. Probably THE most despised team to ever strap on skates....every road visit was a sellout, as the opponent's fans LUVED hating these guys...for good reason. Aside from having one of the most skilled teams in the league (plus TOP goaltender) they would outhustle and often (for good measure) beat the crap out of you to get the win. LUVED watching these guys as a little kid at the Spectrum. Hammer, Hound, Moose, Big Bird, Clarkie, etc...one other thing of note was the sheer size of the celebration parades thru Philly after the Championships...2 million in '74 & 2.3 million in '75. Many renown sports broadcasters still comment on the size/spectacle of those as NO other city had those kind of crowds for championship teams (save maybe the '69 Mets/Jets)...just didn't happen. Truly unique team that 40 years later Still captures the hearts of many older Philly fans.

Great book, highly recommend by novice author that keeps it interesting and not puff piece. If you can get this book used/in nice condition for under $50 do it....will only be harder to find as time goes on.

During the 70s I was a rabid New York Ranger fan and hated the Broad Street bullies with a passion. My biggest thrill was seeing Dave Schultz get his clock cleaned (which unfortunately didn't happen too often). Consequently I approached this book with a little trepidation since I was expecting a Stan Fischler type of read promoting the Flyers as a flawless group of men who put everything together for a few years and then rode off into the glorious sunset. This book is anything but that. The players and their coach are exposed with all their warts. Divorce, death in the family, alcoholism, depression and getting screwed by the organization are shown to be every bit part and parcel of the NHL player as they are the man on the street. I came away with a new found respect for these players who for years represented for me everything that is evil in the National Hockey League. (The exception being Bobby Clarke who proves what a jerk he is by freely admitting that he intentionally broke the ankle of a star Russian player just to get him off the ice).

Highly recommended for hockey fans who fondly remember this era of slam-bang hockey without face shields and few helmets.
