Flyers Sex-Fantasy Fan-Fiction: It Exists

Claude Giroux, in the buff.

(Flyers fan fic considerably racier than above tribute video.)

In his most valuable contribution to the world of Philadelphia journalism since his legendary re-tracing of the Rocky II montage, Philly Mag contributor Dan McQuade’s written a City Paper cover story on the very real world of Philadelphia Flyer fan fiction. (There is a much smaller sampling of Phillies fan-fic, including the immortal “It’s Werth It.”)

Sometimes [Claude] Giroux falls in love with a female trainer (a recurring plot setup in Flyers fan fiction). In one story, Giroux beats out Jordan Staal for the protagonist’s affections; in another he falls in love with a female hockey player who’s been drafted by the Flyers.
