As a thank-you to Mickey, I contacted the Flyers' manager of game operations, Michael Wurman, and asked whether he would play the Ween song "It's Gonna Be a Long Night" at some point. Sure enough, during the first intermission, the song came on, and Mickey, as laid-back as he is, was visibly touched.
