    First, I want to start by apoligizing if I massacre her name....

    But has anyone else noticed that last year Laura Lee sang the national anthem all last season and we won the championship? This season, she isn't around so much...and well....need I say more?

    The Flyers had Kate Smith.

    I think that this past weekend was the third time....but yes, it was purple the last time. We spent last season watching it get lighter and then this seaon it gets longer and changes color everytime she shows up! :p

    she belts the anthem out better than anyone. in my opinion.

    i'd be curious to see the correlation to laura's singing and our winning.

    Man, I could watch her sing all day and all nite long. Not only a great voice but what a hottie! Laura Lee Taraskus is her full name and she should sing the anthem at every Wings game!

    Personally, I think Laura Lea does a fantastic job. I would love to see her sing at every Wings home game, like last season. Gotta tell ya, I was disappointed when I didn't see her as much.

    Her hair looks awesome. Normally I hate that whole funky-color thing but it actually looks good. Not to mention, she's incredibly gorgeous.

    I think that Laura has a great voice, when she's the one who sings The National Anthem, I get the goose bumps.

    Laura Lee and the SSB

    I think you are right - when Laura Lee sings the SSB, the Wings
    win ! Those other two that we've had this year really murtleize it - especially the tall one with the big nose. UGH !

    Does anyone remember the girl who was like 10 years old ?
    Gagliardi (?) WOW !

    Laura Lee has only sung twice. :( The other time was when the Wings played Rochester. We won that one, too, so I think you're on to something here. She's really cool.

    I was wondering if she also sang at Phantoms games and if that is why her hair was purple?

    Fantasmic - that was Erica Gagliardi (I'm not sure of the spelling, and I'm sure she isn't related to John Gagliardi!) that sang the anthem a few times for the Wings - she used to do the anthem quite a bit for the Flyers back in those days... I'm not sure what ever happened to her. Speaking of not knowing what happened to someone, how about Katie Toner Drake, who did the anthem for 3 or 4 years during our 23 game home winning streak from 93-97... I'd love to have her back for a big game sometime!

    Amen JSap....

    I was thinking the same thing.

    Where's Katie?!?!

    Longest home winning streak in Wings (if not Philly) history, (and she's not bad to look at either! :D )

    BTW, this takes nothing away from Laura L. either, I was just thinking of the old days... *sigh*

    Im glad you guys noticed this also. The second that I heard her name said by the PA announcer I clapped and knew the Wings would win. I noticed before that every game she sang at last season the Wings pulled it out. I also rememeber her singing once this season and the Wings winning, so immediately I thought we were in good shape. Let's just hope they are smart enough to bring her back this weekend.
  13. I'm coming back for the home opener to sing God Bless America. I can not WAIT to be back at a Wings game in Philly!

    If you don't have tickets yet, you can get them here (https://groupmatics.events/event/Katiedrake) for just $15 up until December 7. See you there!

    Go Wings!

    I have still been around, lurking, for the past few years - just haven't had a good reason to post until recently! :)
