Veteran to veteran: ‘You can do it, follow me’ Help. To reach its goal of ending chronic veteran homelessness, a local center is employing formerly homeless vets. Delvin Brinson started out a good guy. Then he turned into a bad guy. Then, an undecided guy. Now, he helps turn those bad and undecided guys around. “I was the guy that when you come into the neighborhood,” he said, “you didn’t rob nobody, you didn’t mess with nobody, because you had to meet me.” But he lost his way. “And instead of being

the guy who looked out for the good people,” he said, “I became the guy who started hanging out with the crazy people.” This experience makes Brinson — a 61-year-old former drug dealer, jail bird, street fighter and alcoholic veteran — uniquely qualified for his position. The main goal is to cut down on the time it takes to get veterans housed and back on their feet.

And it starts with Brinson, who goes out and finds them. First, he builds trust — brings blankets, jackets, gloves, scarves, “even a meal,” he said — something to get them to stop and think, “You know, maybe this guy really does want to help me.” Now, Brinson has a captive audience.

A previously homeless veteran, who is now housed, acts as a mentor. The model, said Tim Meserve, a veteran who heads the center, is to convince the veterans there is comfort and safety to be found off the streets.

The Pennsylvania Society for the Protection of Animals on Saturday raided a Southwest Philadelphia home where an animal hoarder had 18 cats. William Miller, 50, of 7404 Elmwood Ave., has been charged with 15 counts of animal cruelty. Miller reportedly had

confined 15 cats and three newborn kittens in unsanitary conditions. PSPCA officers entering the home found it to be ”covered in 4-5 inches of feces all around,” said George Bengal, Director of Humane Law Enforcement, in a statement announcing the raid.

‘HOW DID I GET HERE?’ MY FATHER WANTS TO KNOW My father asks the same question, over and over, often while we are driving on Tyson Avenue to his doctor’s appointments. I have no idea why that road triggers memories in his mind tangled by dementia, but it does. “How did I get here?” he wants to know. “Because I didn’t want to take Levick to get to Torresdale Avenue,” I reply. But that is not what he means. I know he is trying to figure out why he, a college professor at Rosemont College, is in assisted living. How did he get there? How did he get to be 86? How come his memory is so messed up? I try my best to answer. “Well, you fell down the steps in your house,” I tell him. “You had to go to the emergency room

And we were worried about you.” (I left out the part about robbers breaking into his house while he was sleeping. Later, they stole all the copper pipes from his basement and his World War 2 medals. They were never caught, and I hope they rot in hell.) He doesn’t seem upset by my answers, just perplexed. In about 15 minutes, he will ask me again, because his short term memory is shot. “You live in your own

room at the Philadelphia Protestant Home and you like it there,” I tell him. “PROTESTANT?” he asks, with some concern. He is Irish/Scotch Catholic, through and through. Each time I tell him he lives at PPH, he gets a worried tone, as if he is Mary Queen of Scots in Reformist England. I assure him that while the name of the facility involves the word “Protestant,” he and other Catholics are quite welcome there. This reassures him. One of my friends suggested that I should tell him that

he lives at the “Catholic Senior Resort and Spa.” Dementia is evil and nefarious. It creeps up like a vine, choking off memories and cognition. It slowly spreads until the person is fragments of who he once was. When my dad was whole, he read five newspapers a day. He taught college history classes and could rattle off facts and dates. Now he struggles to remember who he is — and why he is in some Protestant place. But in many ways, my family is lucky. Dad still knows me, my siblings and our kids. He is still funny, loving and sweet. If he wants to ask me the same questions, that is OK. I don’t know why Tyson Avenue triggers his mind, but I will take whatever dementia hasn’t. He is still my dad.

Clark was charged with two counts of theft, seven counts of unlawful use of credit card, attempted unlawful use of credit card, possession of a prescription drug without a prescription, two counts of possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

One person dead, two injured after fire escape collapses While celebrating a birthday party at an apartment building near Rittenhouse Square, three guests taking a smoke break fell 40 feet after a fire escape collapsed. Police said they received the call at 12:08 a.m. and upon arriving at the home on 22nd and Walnut streets, found the victims in an alley beside the building. Fire personnel and medics stabilized the three and brought them to hospitals. A 22-year-old male victim suffered severe head and neck injuries and was brought to Hahnemann Hospital. He succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead at 5:43 a.m. His name has not been released, pending notification of immediate family.

Political career

Christie bridge defense triggers risk, Giuliani says New Jersey Governor Chris Christie put his political life on the line by denying any involvement in a bridge scandal that’s engulfed his administration, said former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani. “If it’s not true, the man has put his political career at risk,” Giuliani said of his fellow Republican. Giuliani was speaking on ABC’s “This Week.” “He says he didn’t realize, he says he

didn’t know. I think it’s pretty darn credible — he wouldn’t make this blanket denial.” Internal emails released last week showed that Christie’s allies orchestrated the September closures of lanes merging onto the George Washington Bridge that lead into Manhattan from Fort Lee, N.J., in an act of political revenge. Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich is a Democrat who —- unlike some leading party members in his state — didn’t break ranks to endorse the governor’s November re-election bid. BLOOMBERG

Now that more than 2 million people have signed up for private insurance plans created by President Barack Obama’s health care law, a crucial next check-up for the new marketplace will be to see how old customers are. Early data from a handful of state exchanges shows the administration needs more young adults to sign up in the next three months to help offset costs from older enrollees and prevent insurers from raising their rates. Critics of Obama’s Affordable Care Act say the market won’t attract enough young people to

keep it financially viable, putting more pressure on government funds to compensate for any insurer losses. Data from seven states and the District of Columbia, which are running their own marketplaces, show that of more than 200,000 enrollees, nearly 22 percent are 18 to 34 years old, according to a Reuters analysis. “The whole insurance relationship is counting on them signing up,� said Dale Yamamoto, an independent health care actuarial consultant.

footnote Rick Salomon (he’s the guy who made Paris Hilton famous when he starred as the other half in that sex tape) announced their marriage over the weekend. “We’re very happy,” Anderson disclosed to E!. “Our families are very happy and that’s all that matters.” It’s the second marriage for the couple — to each other. They were married for 10 weeks in 2007. Someone else you need to send a wedding present to? Whitney Houston’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, apparently married her “adopted” brother Nick Gordon last week, according to TMZ. com. Although the two claim that Cissy Houston OK’d the marriage, TMZ reports that’s a lie and that Grandma Houston is none too pleased about the union. And really, how can you be?

Bynes is back in school Amanda Bynes is going back to school — or at least it seems she was planning to. The troubled former child star reportedly enrolled for classes at the Orange County campus of the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising that began last week, though she was apparently a no-show on the first day, according to E!. Bynes had made it clear via her lawyer that once she was out of treatment at a psychiatric facility she wanted to pursue a career in fashion, and she toured the FIDM campus in early December.

Thompson and Bullock admit their love

Emma Thompson knows who would be the first to sign up to play her love interest if she ever decided to do a lesbian role. “I met [Sandra] Bullock at an awards thing a couple years ago, and she said to me, ‘If I were gay, you’d be the one,’” Thompson tells The Advocate. “I said, ‘I’m there!’” Coincidentally, Thompson might have something for Bullock after all. “I am writing a screenplay, set in London, about a lesbian who was born in Darwin, Australia. It’s about suicide, really,” Thompson reveals.

Today, Alec Baldwin feels pretty strongly about his rules, Jaden Smith feels like doing some traveling, Louis Tomlinson is a man of simple pleasures and Joan Rivers is glad to be back. @ABFoundation: Abuse of political power is unforgivable. @officialjaden: I’m Slowly Realizing I Need To Make A Trip Out To Norway @Louis_Tomlinson: Must admit I’m loving celeb big brother ! @Joan_Rivers: Heading back to NYC from L.A. Everything is so fake and plastic in L.A. - you’d think I’d fit right in, but I’m excited to be going home!

Penis jokes and Tam Honks Awards. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler killed it as the raunchy and adorable hosts of the 2014 Golden Globes. Let’s be honest: Tina Fey and Amy Poehler could walk onstage and fart into the mic and everyone would be pressing toward the stage to get a whiff. These are two of the funniest and most ridiculously likable women (or people) in comedy. So it’s really no big surprise that they had the audience eating out of the palms of their hands from word one. These ladies give good joke. They took to the stage to thunderous applause and greeted the audience like old friends. Actually, a lot of them are. “Welcome to the 71st annual Tina

Fey and Amy Poehler Lee Daniels’ The Butler Golden Globes,” Fey opened, while Poehler took a moment to thank the “women and gay men watching at home.” One target for the night was everyone’s favorite guy Tom Hanks, who Poehler called out as “Tam Honks.” “Damn, I knew I would mess that up!” she muttered, as the camera shot to Hanks, ks, who mugged annoyance for the camera. Everyone is agreeable at the Globes, because everyone is drunk. We’d like ke to think that includes ludes Tam Honks. Ahem, Tom Hanks. We are drunk for the Globes, too. Poehler and Fey went on to showcase their knowledge of the celebrity hierarchy, putting Robert Redford below Mr. Bean and Jean Claude Van Damme above everyone.

Matt Damon, Poehler pointed out, would be a big deal on any other night, but on this occasion “you’re basically a garbage person.” Watching celebs interact like this is like watching a dog walk on its hind legs or watching Reese Witherspoon try to take a selfie with Julia Louis-Dreyfus and an get rebuffed (that happened). (tha It’s It both odd and adorable. a The almost entirely delighte ful monologue f jokes about the jo big noms (“The original origina title of that movie was ‘Explosion at the Wig Factory,’” Fey joked about “American Hustle.” Individuals were not spared: “George Clooney would rather float away into space and die then spend one more minute with a woman his age,” Fey quipped.

Bryan Cranston liked this.) In fact, no man was safe from the comedy barbs that fell from the mouths of these babes: “If I wanted to see Jonah Hill masturbate at a pool party, I’d go to one of Jonah Hill’s pool parties,” Poehler said in regard to “The Wolf of Wall Street.” That wasn’t the only penis joke. Poehler informed the crowd that Hanks was presently wearing a prosthetic penis and “really enjoying it.” Finally, Poehler shouted out her alma mater, quip-

ping, “‘Masters of Sex’ ... is the degree I got from Boston College” and then highfived Fey while the crowd hooted like frat boys. Fey countered with the only joke that fell flat, saying, “‘The Blacklist’ is who is invited to my room later.” It was the only awkward moment in a monologue that proved why these ladies booked a multi-year hosting gig. They’re the best.

Different strokes

Julianne Nicholson

Television vs. film vs. theater

Where you’ve seen her: The films “Kinsey,” “Flannel Pajamas” and “Brief Interviews with Hideous Men”; the shows “Law & Order: Criminal Intent,” “Boardwalk Empire” and “Masters of Sex” Her big break: Playing Ivy, the calm center of the storm in the new film adaptation of “August: Osage County,” Tracy Letts’ Pulitzerwinning play, which also stars Meryl Streep

“They’re each so different. I love being able to do them all. In theater I love the rehearsal process and really getting the role in your body. Film is exciting because you get the whole piece: You know the whole arc of your character. You know the beginning, middle and end. In television I like that you don’t know what’s coming next.”

JULIANNE NICHOLSON An actress of stage and screen hits the big time as the calm center of “August: Osage County.”

THE BREAKTHROUGH Was she intimidated doing a film on this scale?: “Yes. The first hurdle was getting the job. I just didn’t think about [the cast]. Then I got the job and I felt great. I felt like I intrinsically knew who Ivy was.” On doing a play on film: “I didn’t look at it as a play. I had seen the play and I had loved it. But enough time had passed that I didn’t remember any specifics. It wasn’t like I had to recreate anything. And

it’s an amazing piece.” On doing a play on film by a TV director: “John [Wells’] strength is with ensembles. He has a history of doing that with ‘ER’ and ‘Shameless’ and ‘The Company Men.’ He has a real knack for bringing the right people together to get the best out of them.” On shooting the big set piece — a 19-page dinner scene — over four days: “[Wells] broke it up into three sections, six or seven

pages for each part. We rehearsed the whole thing through at Meryl [Streep’s] house. We all sat around the table and ate dinner while we rehearsed the lines and got the rhythm of it, discovered beats. When shooting it, it didn’t feel choppy. It felt like everyone knew their lines. We probably could have done it straight through every time.”

talking, before you put it on its feet. You’re sharing stories and exploring ideas and asking questions. It was being together, getting to know each other, picking up each other’s mannerisms, creating a feel of history so that when you start filming you already know each other, rather than showing up on the first day and acting like someone’s your sister.”

The film stars Mark Wahlberg as Marcus Luttrell, the only one of four SEALS to return from the mission and who wrote the 2007 book on which the movie is based.

fourth place with “American Hustle,� an awardsseason favorite directed by David O.

The 1981 thriller “Thief� came at a peculiar time. The ’70s Hollywood style of feel-bad character studies — some of which featured the film’s star, James Caan — had come to an end. MTV was about to premiere, ushering in an era of pure, musicdriven looks. “Thief� straddles both periods. It’s a gritty, grimy downer that also features long stretches that groove to the score by Tangerine Dream, where the film suddenly looks and feels like a particularly hypnotic music video. Serve the servants

Caan’s Frank, like many criminals before him, is out for that one last score. Hoping to settle down, he recklessly joins up with a local mob boss (Robert Prosky). This goes about as well as expected, but the devil, as ever, is in the details. The feature film debut of Michael Mann (“Heat,� “Miami Vice�), “Thief� establishes his obsession with people being their jobs. Frank wants out, but the film’s title is a prison that will forever contain him.

I’m always setting daily goals and getting down on myself when I don’t achieve all of them. Any advice? Just this past week, a bright, young recent law school graduate presented me with a similar problem. The young man explained to me that he is constantly making daily schedules and beating himself up when he doesn’t stick to them. When I encouraged him to cut himself a little slack, he replied, “If I were a robot, I would be able to meet my goals.� “Perhaps,� I replied. “But you’re not a robot.� One of the common mistakes people make when setting goals, especially if they involve schedules, is that they base them on an external benchmark without accounting for their personal styles. Good goal-setting is

PLUS

an inside-out job, not an outside-in job. If you set your goals and schedules according to what works for other people, without being honest about how and when you work best, you may find yourself continually frustrated and disappointed. Whether we realize it or not, we all have individual rhythms and preferences that guide our actions. For example, I’m not much of a morning person, and I usually get my wind around 2 p.m. My best friend, on the other hand, is usually at the gym by 7 a.m. If, in creating my own workout goals, I based them on what works for her, I would be setting myself up for frustration and disappointment. Instead, I go in the late afternoon or early evening. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator categorizes personality types across

1. BistroMD 2. The 17 Day Diet 3. Jenny Craig 4. Diet-to-Go 5. Nutrisystem

Find the schedule that works best for you. / FUSE

four different dimensions: Extraversion or Introversion; Intuition or Sensing; Feeling or Thinking; and Judging or Perceiving. The dimension that most governs how you structure your day (or don’t) is the latter one. Judgers (which, contrary to how it sounds, has nothing to do with being judgmental) like to have their ducks in a row. They like structure and keeping to schedules. Perceivers (who aren’t necessarily any more perceptive than the Judgers) prefer a more flexible approach to life — they

go with the flow, so to speak. Neither judging nor perceiving is considered a more legitimate approach to life — both are equally valid. They just have different inclinations. If you are a Perceiving type, may I suggest you set weekly goals instead of daily ones. That will give you focus, while offering you more flexibility to get things done in your own way, in your own time. You might also think about when, during the day, you tend to have the most energy, and plan your schedule accordingly.

If you’re anything like me, there’s a method to your madness. You just need to figure it out and be gentle with yourself.

Speed-read your way to a better semester Zoom. Expert advice you need to take on that pile of books.

So many books, so little time: As reading assignments start pouring on this semester, you may quickly recognize the necessity for plowing through them at lightning speed. Paul Nowak, founder of speed-reading training company Iris Reading, helps people ramp up their reading pace and save time. “If a college student spends 40 hours a week reading, just doubling their speed frees up an extra 20 hours. That translates into an extra 1,040 hours a year — 43 whole days,” he says. That means you can become a more efficient student (and

spend hours sleeping or binge-watching Netflix.) There are several ways to plow through textbooks while absorbing the information. “Use your finger or a pen to guide your eyes while reading,” he advises. This improves focus, reading speed and concentration, Nowak says, “because your eyes are naturally attracted to motion.” You can time yourself to see how long it takes to read one page of a book. Nowak mentions the average reading speed for a medium-level text is 150 to 250 words per minute. If it’s a technical textbook (hello, physics and math), anything above 300 words per minute is considered superfast. Make a game of beating your former time and you’ll get faster and

faster, Nowak says. If you have a huge assignment, Nowak recommends factoring in short breaks. Read for 25 minutes, then take a five-minute break. “Research in neuroscience shows that our brain has trouble focusing on a single task for more than 25 minutes,” he explains. Our brains need rest to absorb information. In addition, a “preview” will help you grasp the most important points. Read the introduction and conclusion, and then the headings and first sentences of paragraphs. “This distills the most crucial information from the lengthy text. Now that you know what to expect, you’ll be able to read faster with better comprehension.”

Use a free online tool. If you’re reading on the computer screen, use a free speed-reading tool like AccelaReader. com, which helps you read faster by blinking words on the screen at a speed that you set. This application utilizes a technology called Rapid Serial Visual Presentation and has been shown to increase reading speed.

2

Take notes. If you want to remember something for the long run, take notes while reading. Notetaking has been shown to improve reading retention. A good balance would be to follow the 80/20 rule. Spend 80 percent of your time reading and no more than 20 percent of your time taking notes if you want to improve your retention.

DUMP THE FIVE-PARAGRAPH ESSAY I am here today to liberate you. From what? From the tyranny of the five-paragraph essay that reigns over most high school careers. Sometimes it’s called the 3.8-paragraph essay, but whatever the formulaic essay format that became the default for any “formal� writing you did for school, it’s over. Now that you are in college, five paragraphs are no longer necessary, or even practical, for the kinds of writing you will need to do. This isn’t to say that organization and structure, thesis statements and conclusions, evidence and research are no longer relevant. But it means that college writing gives you the opportunity to go further and deeper into a subject than was ever allowed in the rigid confines of five paragraphs. At the end of the day, what professors are looking for throughout your college education is to see students begin to think deeply and differently

about a given subject or topic. They want you to ask hard questions and find your own way to try and answer them. In high school, you were often called upon to give reports: book reports, lab reports, his-

college, that is only the beginning. Take for example a high school essay on World War II: A fiveparagraph report would dutifully record the important dates, the major reasons behind the war, explain the U.S. involvement and generally explain how the war ended. A college essay requires that you go deeper. You have to answer more than the simple facts and dig into deeper historical questions and back them up by solid, historical research. As a professor, I would want to see you answer questions like why the U.S. only got involved after Pearl Harbor, rather than before, and examine the conditions in Europe leading up to Hitler’s reign. You have more room than five paragraphs, so I want to see the research that led you to the conclusions you present. Asking questions and digging deeper means more than five paragraphs.

Find references to last all career long Be nice. Just because you’re a student doesn’t mean that you can’t keep career references in mind. During your studies and the early stages of your work life, it’s important to develop the kinds of relationships that can turn into a solid list of references. Your part-time employer, a favorite professor, a career counselor or a peer whom you worked with on a big project are all examples of people who can become professional connections in the future. Maintaining your relationships with those who know and respect you now may help you down the road when starting your career search.

How to do it Ask as you go: One of the easiest ways to build your references is to treat the connection process as an ongoing activity. This will help you avoid scrambling to remember all the important contacts when you need them. Be sure to ask potential references if they would be willing to give you a professional or personal reference letter (depending on the situation) once your work with them is complete. If you aren’t sure about the strength of your connection, stay in contact and build a relationship through email or casual meetings. Don’t be afraid to ask: Asking someone for a reference doesn’t have to be a daunting task — you’ve likely established a good

relationship with them already, and if you’re polite and respectful, people will want to help you out. Also, it isn’t mandatory to ask for a reference face-to-face. It’s the most formal way to ask, but if the idea puts you out of your comfort zone, a phone call or email is appropriate. Keep it brief: Asking for a reference shouldn’t be a speech about your life and why you deserve a reference from the person. Explain why you’d like them to be a reference and ask if they’re comfortable doing so. You don’t want to waste their time — let them guide the conversation.

The relationships you create in school can be the bonds that help you get ahead further down the line, so it’s worth the investment. / GETTY IMAGES Don’t wait

Why it’s important to start now Gives you credibility: Potential employers want to know that they’re investing in someone who will stick it out. Having references makes you more credible.

Supports your résumé: Anyone can make claims on a résumé. While you can’t have a reference for every single item, having a variety of references for different skills makes your résumé more substantial. Shows initiative: The job market for students is

competitive. Employers have a large selection of applicants to choose from during the hiring process. When you’re trying to get your foot in the door, a well-rounded list of references will help overcome a lack of specific experience or a less-developed skill set.

Living a stress-free life is the kind of thing a spam email promises (along with a diet in which you can lose 10 pounds in a week or earn money while you sleep). In its annual survey of the most and least stressful jobs, CareerCast. com ranked gigs from soldier to seamstress by their stress levels. The rankings are based on numbers from the Bureau of Labor Statistics as well as census data, but fall short of direct polling of professionals in the jobs listed. The research showed that frequent travel, strict deadlines, public scrutiny and physical danger make employees reach for the blood pressure meds. It makes sense, then, that soldiers and firemen have some of the most stressful jobs out there (no comment on the fact that “newspaper

Take away the freedom to exploit

Bridge scandal is no joke, Christie

Re: ‘Bad economics’ (Metro, Jan. 10-12) I totally disagree with Alton Yee construing the Affordable Care Act, minimum wage law and unemployment insurance to mean the taking away of our “economic freedoms.” I think most will consider these laws as protections. For some time now, U.S. businesses have driven down our quality of life while collecting record profits. There was a time when most heads of the households were paid a “family wage.” Today, if you are able to be paid a “living wage” you’re better off than most. If our government does take away any of our freedoms I hope it’s the freedom to exploit others. If U.S. businesses sincerely offered fair opportunities and proper compensation for our labor, we would not need the aforementioned programs.

If New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie thinks that firing Bridget Kelly and spending two hours on TV declaring himself an innocent non-bully will solve the problem that he and his staff created, he’s wrong. Crimes were committed. If you or I or anyone reading this paper went out on I-95 and put up traffic cones, choked interstate traffic and commerce and impeded first responders, we would be arrested instantly. Christie is the governor and had to know that the main highway between his state and New York City was blocked for days. He did nothing. He joked about it.

Championship round The ďŹ nal four has been determined, and next week the last remaining NFC and AFC teams will go to battle for the right to represent their conferences in the Super Bowl at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey. Here’s an early glimpse of the matchups: •

•

49ers at Seahawks Jan. 19, 6:30 p.m., FOX The Seahawks won convincingly at home way back in Week 2, 29-3. The 49ers won a nail-biter, 19-17 at Candlestick Park on Dec. 8. Third time could be a charm for whoever wins this battle between the two best teams in the NFC’s best conference. The Niners have 60 minutes between themselves and a second straight Super Bowl, but they will also have to contend with CenturyLink Field, where Seattle is 15-1 over the last two seasons. Patriots at Broncos Jan. 19, 3 p.m., CBS It’s what everyone has wanted all season, Brady vs. Manning for all the marbles. And after a tough test against the Chargers Sunday night, the two best quarterbacks of the past two decades will go head-to-head for a chance to play in the Super Bowl. The Patriots had no problem with the Colts Saturday and both teams are playing great football at the most important time.

Former Flyers goalie NHL. The netminder remembers the Bullies’ win over the Soviet Union with Russian Olympics on the horizon. Just as he did 38 years ago to the day, Bobby Taylor still has the best seat in the house to watch the Flyers do battle. The only difference is this time he wasn’t supposed to play. That was the case when he backed up Wayne Stephenson in goal in the Flyers’ 4-1 win over the Soviet Red Army, Jan. 11, 1976, arguably the franchise’s greatest single moment next to their two Stanley Cup clinching wins. The 68-year-old Taylor was back in town Saturday in his familiar role as TV analyst for the Tampa Bay Lightning, who erupted for four second-period goals

to beat the Flyers, 6-3, and snap their 10-game home winning streak. Fittingly, much of that was due to the play of their own backup goalie, Anders Lindback, who kicked out 35 shots, many from point-blank range Taylor, who spent most of his five-year Flyers career as Bernie Parent’s backup — including uding both Cup-winning ng squads under Fred Shero, then remembered the day he was scheduled to go, but got bumped at the last minute. e. “We had a shutout utout and they had like seven shots on goal,” recalled Taylor, known as “The Chief” long before Craig Berube came along, who played just 44 games as a Flyer, going 15-16-7, with a 4.05 goals against. “Freddy came to me in the middle of the game and said he was going to stick with Stephenson.

Feeling a little “off”?

“I was supposed to play the second half of the game, so it was a disappointment. But with the team we had we didn’t care who scored or who played. We just wanted to win.” The then two-time defending Cup champion Flyers played convincingly that day, to the utter relief of the rest of the NHL. NH In what they called the “Super ca Series,” the RusS sians had sent two teams over t aand taken it to the rest of the th NHL. NH While the Soviet Wh Wings went 3-1, their consensus top team Central Red Army beat the Rangers and Bruins and tied Montreal. Only the infamous Broad Street Bullies stood in their way of claiming worldwide hockey supremacy. The Flyers made sure that didn’t happen, stifling the Soviets’ passhappy attack with their physical play. The highlight came midway through the first period when defenseman Ed Van Impe leveled Soviet star Valeri Kharlamov with a hard check that so infuriated the Russians they left the ice in protest. When they finally returned after Flyers owner Ed Snider threatened to withhold their payment

Taylor recalls top moment for the entire Super Series, the Flyers systematically took them apart. “We dominated them,” said Taylor, as goals by Reggie Leach, Rick MacLeish, followed by defenseman Joe Watson’s shorthanded score broke it open early. “It was really a testament to how well we could play.” “I had no idea it’s 38 years today. All I know is the league was really worried we were going to be overwhelmed by the socalled Russian machine. “They didn’t want us to play ‘stupid’ and push them around,” he continued. “But we had the best pre-game scouting. We knew what they were going to do. They wanted us to chase them but we just sat back and waited for them. They didn’t know what to do. They only had 13 shots.’’ The NHL’s reputation temporarily “saved” by the team everyone loved to hate, hockey began to change from that point on. Eventually the league opened its arms to the Russians, Czechs and the rest of Europe to the point where international players now permeate virtually every team’s roster. Not only that, but 38 years since this ’76 “Russian invasion” it will all come full circle in a matter of weeks when the NHL sends its best players to Sochi for the Olympics.
