Wayne Simmonds fires away in the Flyers hype video.

In recent years, the Eagles have been the gold standard (but like, for real) when it comes to their hype videos for upcoming seasons, big games, etc. If the Flyers' most recent effort is any indication of what is to come, the Birds are upping the games of their neighbors at the sports complex:

The Orange and Black got Sheena Parveen, Ukee Washington, Preston and Steve, Mike Solomonov, Jim Kenney, Tony Luke, Jay Wright, and Connor Barwin in on the act with a host of construction workers, artists, and people from all walks of life in the Delaware Valley. This is very well done.

I guess this means the Sixers and Phillies have to up their game now, huh?

P.S. The Flyers should probably reach out to Dr. Jill Biden for next year's video:
