Brind’Amour was traded from the St. Louis Blues to the Flyers in the early 90’s and quickly became well known to the loyal fans (and not just because of his notorious schnoz). Rod scored more than 30 goals in each of his first three seasons with the Flyers, recording a career-high 37 goals in 1992-93 and a personal-best 97 points the next season. He was one of the league’s “iron men” with a consecutive games streak of 484 games, a Flyers franchise record. As a center, Rod was outstanding defensively, on face-offs, and when dropping the gloves. Spending 8 seasons with the Flyers, fans were heartbroken when Rod was traded to the Carolina Hurricanes in 2000 for Keith Primeau.
Brind’Amour continued to succeed, even after being traded. He was given the captain’s “C” in 2005, was awarded the Selke Trophy, and hoisted his only Stanley Cup that year with the Carolina Hurricanes. Brind’Amour won the cup under the Flyers current head coach, Peter Laviolette, who referred to him as “the heart and soul of our team.”
Rod hung up the skates in 2010 and shortly after had his #17 retired by the Carolina Hurricanes in a game against the Flyers. Every orange and black member sported #17 during warmups to show their brotherly love for an exceptional player.
This spin on a fan favorite camping treat is sure to deliver consistent success, much like the “Iron man” himself.
You’ll only need a few basics for this camping treat and I decided to add a few different ingredients to experiment. Feel free to do the same next time you pitch a tent in the woods.
- Honey Graham Crackers
- Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
- A sturdy roasting stick
I’m sure I don’t need to go into specifics about how to assemble a S’more, however, here are a few tips:
- Make sure to prep your graham crackers, chocolate and any other ingredients first to avoid a sticky situation while roasting your marshmallows.
- For my chocolate, I used Reese’s Peanut Butter cups instead of the typical Hershey’s Bar since peanut butter pairs well with the banana. Other variations include Nutella & Strawberries, Snickers, Rolo’s, Caramel, etc. Feel free to experiment with different candies and fruit combinations to liven up your typical s’mores.
- Whether you choose to roast your marshmallows to a crisp or lightly toast them, the peanut butter cup and banana combo is sure to score some fanfare.
