Some more blasts from the past

Looks like Neil O'Callaghan taking a slap shot with Bob Lesser looking on. Then more of the Avenue F Flyers sitting on the bench outside of the rink (on top). Can anyone identify the players in the picture?

  1. Hey guys! I was a defenseman on the 74-75 Kenna Cup Champion Flyers with Bob Lesser! It was my first season.....

    Just found out about this from Nancy & Neil Ocallahan, and look forward to trying to play in November.....

    It took me awhile to remember you Ron, but it did come to me. You were the big goalie for the "older guys" back then and one of the few who would talk to us "younger guys"!

    Read briefly about Inky and Drew and am sorry to hear.......

    Look forward to seeing you all soon. Coming in from Allentown, PA.............

  2. Hey Andrew,
    I'm Ronnie's cousin Pete - we both lived across the street from the O'Callaghan's and your sister Rosalie went to IHM and St. Brendan's with my sister Denise Liria. As I recall, Ronnie was intrigued by a black '69 Barracuda you may remember Ron from his red '71 Cuda....

    Hope to see you in November!


  3. Andew,

    If I remember correctly you owned a Barracuda?
    67 68 or 69?
    Did you also play goalie along with skating forward?

    I'll make a start on the identifications but we'll need some others input as well. Starting from the right you have "little" Mike Biagioni, John Abel then Darrell Somerville. It gets a little tough after that but I think Andrew Canepa may be down the far left end. I'll try to see if I can make any more sense out of some of the other shots from that day but these were not the best photos on and overcast and champagne drizzle day.
