Have you ever wished, if only for a day, to feel the joy of being an innocent child again? To free yourself of the shackles of adulthood and responsibility and just be a kid once more?
If such a wish were granted, it'd probably look something like the young Flyers fan seen devouring a giant slice of pizza, presumably from Lorenzo's in the Wells Fargo Center, on Comcast SportsNet Saturday during the team's 6-0 thumping of the Columbus Blue Jackets.
"Is she going to eat that entire piece of pizza," asks Flyers play-by-play man Jim Jackson. The real question: does it matter? In the mind of the young girl are only two things in that moment: hockey and pizza.

Years from now, the burdens of her grown life -- bills, her job, relationships -- will certainly whisk away that unknowing sense of pure bliss.
But for now, take a second to think back to simpler times, when you could sit and watch the Flyers with not a care in the world other than the score and your appetite.
