Slain Police Sgt. Stephen Liczbinski was remembered today as husband, father, dedicated officer and, lest we forget, a huge Flyers fan.
With team scheduled for Game 1 of it playoffs series with Pittsburgh tonight, 24-year-old Matt Liczbinski asked mourners to perform, in honor of his father, what may have been a first-ever Flyers cheer at Sts. Peter and Paul Basilica. Taking a time out from “all the seriousness,” Matt Liczbinski led the congregration in “Let’s Go Fly-ers” chant, complete with da-da-dadada clapping.
Sports, in life and death. That’s Philly, baby.
