Phish in Philly: Trey Rocks the Richie Winter Classic Jersey

Jan 25, 2009, 1:30 PM EDT

As we talked about yesterday, Enrico and I have always enjoyed the connection our favorite band—Phish—has had with the local sports scene, particularly the Flyers. Trey's previously worn a John LeClair jersey onstage before, honoring the Vermont native, and the band has even done the National Anthem before a Flyers game.

So I wasn't all THAT surprised when I got to our seats last night, right as the band was coming onstage at the Wachovia Center, and Trey was wearing a Flyers jersey. Still made me giddy like a kid though. Plus he gets some style points for going with the Winter Classic threads, complete with Mike Richards' name, number, and captain's C.

Trey wore the jersey for the whole first set, which is being hailed as the best of the tour so far. I won't get too far into it, but the show was absolutely amazing. Here are some reviews if you're interested. Here is a link where you can purchase soundboard-quality audio of the show. In a few more hours, we do it all again.
